Format: Audio CD
CHRISTMAS TIME IS HERE by Canadian Brass has recently been released. Five fine brass musicians, each a virtuoso in his own right, form the long lived quintet. Since their 1970 founding , the group has earned an international reputation and the title "the world's most famous brass group." The group's membership, now consisting of its founder, Chuck Daellenbach , Achilles Liarmakopoulos , Christopher Coletti , Caleb Hudson and Eric Reed have together contributed their imagination and musicianship to elevate the art of the brass quintet.

CHRISTMAS TIME features the music of Vince Guaraldi and Luther Henderson; it gives us some of the music from the well-loved television Christmas special A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS, and some longtime popular seasonal favorites. "Frosty the Snowman," "Hark the Herald Angels Sing," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," "O Tannenbaum," and "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" all receive the jaunty brass treatment of this group. Many of the cuts have a nice smooth jazz styling. Vince Guaraldi's "What Child is This," as beautifully arranged by Brandon Ridenour, was a particular favorite of mine. Also, I was particularly stunned to hear a gorgeous version of Beethoven's lovely "Fuer Elise," originally written for piano - and I should know, as learning this piece was the goal in my long-ago piano lessons - and once I learned it I quit the lessons!

Recently I had the privilege of seeing the group live, and enjoyed their concert immensely. They are fine musicians; they are also very entertaining, with their retro outfits and comic bits. If you ever get the chance to see them, I urge that you do. But meanwhile, here is this nifty new album. Get it if you can.

The Canadian Brass have done it again. 2 Nov 2013
By Christopher Reid - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Christmas Time is Here" is a wonderful tribute to the music of Vince Guraldi. I felt like I was watching "A Charlie Brown Christmas" as I listened to the first part of the CD and at times even forgot I was listening to a brass ensemble and not a jazz ensemble. Though they deviate from the smooth jazz style a bit with songs like "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch" and "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer," the album ends nicely with a reprise of "Christmas is Coming."

This is one CD that will definitely be put in to the Christmas mix.

Brassimo! 16 Dec 2013
By TubaMom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This premiere brass quintet will amaze you with their skill and tickle you with humor! Chuck Daellenbach is a tuba legend. My son and I were quite pleased when we saw Canadian Brass in Dallas from the 2nd row and Dr. Chuck performed Frosty the Snowman to the point of reclining on the stage floor as Frosty melted. I am delighted to find that piece on this recording. Interjected whistling and singing, along with a few percussion additions, help to make this CD bright.

They have done it again! 26 Dec 2013
By John - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The Canadian Brass has been issuing brass quintet music for many years, more than any other brass group out there, each album being better than the last. This new Christmas album is no exception: they are still the reference point for any serious quintet out there. Their music is always fresh, yet still embodies the signature sound that almost any brass player recognizes. If you are a brass player, or simply enjoy brass music...this is for you!
