The third CD by the BBQ: The Beltway Brass Goes to Church

The first CD by the BBQ: Holiday Drive

 

  • Washington Post Review - "...inventive jazz arrangements...  Some tracks are deliriously jaunty, some... feature a lush evocative sprawl; and on their Santa Claus Is Coming to Town, he's bouncing all the way."  [read the whole review]
  • AllAboutJazz.com Review - "It is a happy and hopeful sound that the Beltway Brass effortlessly infuses with holiday cheer."  [read the whole review]
  • Free Lance-Star newspaper article - "There probably wasn't ever anything whimsical about brass quintet music until the Dixie Power Trio's Zack Smith decided to try his hand at it."  [read the whole article]
  • International Trumpet Guild Journal review - "...there is something to please everyone on this CD.  The ensemble sounds crisp and very tight throughout.  Of special note is Andy Kochenour's tuba playing as he sets the groundwork for some interesting improvised solos.  This is most definitely an ensemble of seasoned musicians.  ...I look forward to many more recordings from this dynamic quintet."  [March 2006]
  • ChristmasReviews.com Review - "Holiday Drive is a great blend of exuberant joy and thoughtful contemplation.  You can just feel how much fun these folks are having!  Oompah!"  [read the whole review]
