Well mis amigos, I've been busy for the past 2-3 weeks and haven't posted anything, thanks for your patience.....I'll try to post more albums this week!!!...Si Sennorrr!!!!
Here's "In A Little Spanish Town" by The Living Brass, arranged and conducted by Ray Martin
and produced by Ethel Gabriel
.Here's The Liner Notes:
If the title of this album has you expecting soft, languid, strummed music in the romantic tradition of Old Spain, forget it! You're in for a rollicking musical night on the town.
This is the Living Brass aggregation, man--and nobody sleeps when arranger/conductor Ray Martin and his brassy boys are in the neighborhood, Spanish or otherwise. Their characteristic musical attack releases unexpected spirit, fire and excitement in songs old, new and traditional; sets the toes tapping, the fingers drumming and the strutters strutting.
It couldn't be otherwise when these instrumental specialists team up on the new sound that's sweeping the nation. Other bands may double in brass--but the Living Brass specializes in it, and delivers a savory, rich-bodied sound that never stops swinging or titillating.
Here is all the color, flavor and warmth of the traditional Spanish mood, with such perennials and favorites as In a Little Spanish Town
, Cielito Lindo
and Amor, por Favor
But there's more, much more--daring arrangements and bold instrumental combinations that add new dimensions to the sound, fun and enjoyment of music. To sample a rich slice of the Living Brass' fun-in-sound gamboling, pay special attention to their new-sound treatment of Gotham City Municipal Swing Band.
The bold, brassy sound may have been born in Mexico, but our team of Living Brass specialists makes vibrantly clear its unmatched talent for improving on a good thing-by spicing the traditional Mexican mariachi sound with just the right seasoning of American jazz and rock-and-roll.
