Boban I Marko Balkan Brass Fest

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
Boban Markovic and his band are, quite simply, the best of the Balkan brass bands. They can negotiate hairpin turns in arrangements and a frantic pace, and give the listener a shock of adrenaline with their playing. As always, the playing is exemplary throughout, but one of the purposes of this disc is to introduce Markovic's son, 15-year-old Marko, who proves to be a trumpet sensation like his father.
