Brass Band of Battle Creek – Asphalt Tango Video

The Brass Band of Battle Creek, as many of you know, is an amazing ensemble comprised of literally the world’s greatest brass players. This video is of a recent performance of Asphalt Tango by John Mackey, and exciting work originally written in 2009 for concert band.

The entire ensemble is phenomenal, especially their low brass section: Euphonium/Baritone – Steven Mead, Gail Robertson, Demondrae Thurmon; Trombone – Mark Frost, Wycliffe Gordon, Scott Hartman; Tuba – Marty Erickson, Les Neish, Phil Sinder, and Dave Zerkel — Yikes!!!

    Yep, thanks!

    The piece reminds me of the Plog a little. Do you think this sort of thing would have been written in the days before composing was done on computers?
