Following on the heels of their very successful “Brass Grooves” project, The Dallas Brass is releasing a brand new set of music for small ensembles. I had the good fortune to write these new arrangements along with our colleague John Schuberg. This new series is based upon public domain folk songs and early American standards in popular styles including jazz, bossa-nova, broadway, and marches. In April and May the group went into the studio to record several of the pieces to be released on a new CD later this summer. Watch the Dallas Brass website for upcoming information, and I’ll post updates here as well.
