Geno by Dexy’s has already been taken so although I think this is actually saxophone Rather than brass I’m going to choose it anywayPosted 1 month ago

Been listening to this in the garden this week, stunning album. No vid though.Posted 1 month ago
I suppose some mad dutch kids doing afro beat probably isn’t pop, but they have brassPosted 1 month ago
Brass, you say? An outstanding cover by Calexico
Not ‘pop’ as such, but you won’t find much better brass playing than this, Becky and Rachel Unthank with the Brighouse and Rastrick Brass Band
In the same vein, Kate Rusby, and a song about her own family, with lovely brass.Posted 1 month ago
Roxanne.Posted 1 month ago
I was going to post a Calexico track, **** amazing live, especially right close up in the rough trade tent at the Greenman festival
Calexico in the Rough Trade tent 20 mins after their awesome set on the mountain stage.

oh my what a night, missed the Fall to be there.Posted 1 month ago
@Nick – when was that? I’ve seen Calexico a couple of times in Bristol, close up, but not that close up! Superb band.Posted 1 month ago
Following on from Calexico, Mariachi El BronxPosted 1 month ago
@CountZero Greenman festival 2015, think it was the Saturday night, they had just played the main stage to 10000 people, me and my brother were on our way to see the Fall and just happened to notice they were due on for an impromptu set in the the rough trade tent, and there was no one there, so we grabbed the front spot, gave the guitarist a beer and watched them play 3 more songs, suffice to say it was rammed very quickly, just lucky,
Sunday night was mental brasstastic afrobeat with Jungle by Night closing out the festival with the most bonkers set and crowd I’ve ever seen, finished at 3am Monday morning, I’m having a flashback as I type this.Posted 1 month ago
And switching coasts and genresPosted 1 month ago
Good to see the brass revival. It’s been too long.
Hopefully, it will start to evolve further into proper TV themes. Like the olden days, when a trumpeter was never unemployed.
I give you Sportsnight
Wimbledon Match of the Day
And the Granddaddy, Match of the Day
Proper brass.Posted 1 month ago
NO mention for Baker street? OK again its a sax which IIRC actually counts as woodwind for some weird reasonPosted 1 month ago
Posted 1 month ago
Ok if we can have Baker Street then we can have thisPosted 1 month agoPosted 1 month ago
I don’t know if it’s near the best, but I like it.
And since we’ve had a little jazz, here’s some more. Although you could fill the top 10 000 places with jazz!Posted 1 month ago
Pig bag! Good shout that man, I’d forgotten that one. 😎Posted 1 month ago
