Trumpet Player

Brassucopia

In 1981 The Chicago Brass Quintet released its first recording on Crystal Records. Over the years we had many talks with Crystal about reissuing the original record in a CD format accompanied by newly recorded music. This CD is the fruition of those talks, combining the compositions recorded in 1981 at Temple Emanuel with works we have toured with for a number of years recorded at Rockefeller Chapel, Chicago in 2009.
