The music on this CD was recorded live in concerts during the band’s 2005/6 concert series. It is inevitable in a live recording that there is background noise, coughing, talking and the odd dropped objects from the audience and unfortunately wrong notes from the band, however the bonus is that the recording shows the enjoyment the musicians feel when playing music. This really shows during the playing of the cornet trio, ‘Music for a Silent Movie’, when the listener can clearly hear the band members’ excitement describing, through the music, those far off days of the silent movies – Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton and the Keystone Cops. (Listen out for the police bell).
We hope you will enjoy this live performance given by a group of excellent musicians who receive no pay or expenses, their only reward is that the listener likes what they hear.
