All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
The debut by Lester Bowie's Brass Fantasy an octet consisting of four trumpets, both Craig Harris and Steve Turre on trombones, the French horn of Vincent Chancey, Bob Stewart on tuba and drummer Phillip Wilson is one of their best recordings.

The music is both whimsical and explorative, making for a colorful set.

    Very Strong Highlights

    All the songs are enjoyable. However, "Nonet" is simply one of the best songs in my collection. It's a very driving piece that is a joy to play loudly. Written by Bob Stewart, the tuba player has given himself a serious workout for the duration.
