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.
