Contains an excellent selection of Movie Music, played in the impeccable style of the Grimethorpe Colliery UK Coal Band. Good value for money, with tracks such as The Great Escape March, James Bond Medley, The Dambusters March, Superman Theme, Bridge over the River Kwai (Coloel Bogey), Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom etc. A must for brass band lovers and lovers of Film Muisic!
This has to be my favourite brass cd of all time. I run a primary school brass band and has given me great inspiration for simple movie theme arrangements that the kids have really enjoyed. So far we have done the Bond theme , Indiana Jones and are working on Superman. Lets face it, who doesn't enjoy a good movie them especially when it is played as well as this
This is a compilation of movie music played by one of the best brass bands, if not the best. Since "Brassed off" I do have a soft spot for the Grimethorpe colliery band. As to the repertoire, there is some John Barry and plenty of John Williams to enjoy. Especially moving is the rendition of the Barbarian horde from Gladiator (the last track). Personally I find the Chicken little piece to be slightly misplaced. All the other pieces are such classics that I think it would have been better to add perhaps something from Jerry Goldsmith's or perhaps Hans Zimmer's repertoire. On the whole brilliant!
