Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Patsy Morita

Chuck Dallenbach, tuba, is the one remaining original member, but the level of musicianship is just as high as it has always been with this popular ensemble. It still has that smooth tone and flawless ensemble work. In "La Cumparsita," lines are passed seamlessly between instruments. The slow works, such as the "Air on the G String" and "Lament" -- by one of the group's trumpeters, Brandon Ridenour -- show the members' incredible breath control and melded sounds to their advantage.

The slow works, such as the "Air on the G String" and "Lament" -- by one of the group's trumpeters, Brandon Ridenour -- show the members' incredible breath control and melded sounds to their advantage. Ridenour also made an arrangement of Rimsky-Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumblebee" with some quirky twists that show the group also still has a sense of fun. Fan favorites are also here, such as the "Carnival of Venice," "Saints' Hallelujah," and "Tuba Tiger Rag," no less entertaining with the new incarnation of the ensemble than they were with the original. The Canadian Brass yet again give listeners a solid, entertaining hour of music.
