Benny Greb makes no secret of his talent in creative and complex rhythms. This album includes trumpets, trombones, horns, etc with his luxuriant drumming which is both structured and constantly changing. Actually, I love listening to the brass section too. Obviously it's mainly about the percussion, and about Benny himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine Writing and Performace 9 Jan. 2010
By frankp93 - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I'm not a drummer, but as a string player I've become more interested in rhythm and was so impressed by Benny Greb's instructional video "The Language of Drumming" that I attended one of his music-store demonstrations and picked up this CD.

What's really satisfying here is the focus is on the music rather than a flash display of drum technique. Although Greb no doubt has chops in spades, for a relative young guy, "Benny Greb's Brass Band" is a surprisingly mature statement by a well-rounded musician. The instrumentation is trumpet, trombone, tuba and Benny on drums, but the tunes are catchy, well-arranged, with an emphasis on ensemble sound and groove rather than long expanses of soloing.

One track alone, "Next Question" includes a drum solo and it's more of a groove oriented embellishment rather than a freeform display of chops.

I have to mention the production: The recorded sound of Greb's drums is gorgeous; very warm with plenty of presence. The horns as well are well-defined, without excessive high end.

Greb's writing displays a wide range of influences, most notably, Funk, New Orleans, Bavarian Oompah, groove-oriented jazz. Many include a common signature of drummer-composers: subtle meter shifts. In his video Benny mentions influences from contemporary classical music and there's a beautiful chorale-like tune and one piece that reminded me of Arvo Part's churchbell-like stasis.

At times I was reminded of some of Bobby Previte's work in the 80's and 90's that juxtapositioned funky drumming with more lyrical melodic horn writing. Close horns in this setting can't help but suggest New Orleans and Benny's feel is appropriate while maintaining his own personality. Fans of the Dirty Dozen Jazz Band would appreciate this recording.

Greb is part of a generation of drummers who've thrived in our "post-category" musical world where influences are drawn and merged for their own artistic merit rather than to satisfy the Style Tribunals. You certainly don't have to be a drummer to enjoy listening and learning from them.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this Album 18 Aug. 2013
By jmrconcept - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This album is one of my favourites, sounds fresh, modern and traditional at the same time. The first time i heard it i thought all songs were sounding very similar, but after a while i can see they are not. There are 3 Brass and 1 drum here, and i love the sounds they produce in conjuction. For me is a 6 stars. Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Unique and Unbelievable Set Of Songs I Have EVER Heard In My Life. 2 Jan. 2014
By lundonstudios - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This has to be a first of it's kind!! I am still blown away every time that I listen to this album! The fact that it is just a guy on the drumset and a bunch of horn players makes me go "What the F*#$! This is such a great concept. I wish I had thought of this! Although, I do not believe that I could have pulled off such an awesome perfomance on the drumkit as Benny can! Truly Mind Blowing! This guy is my new drum hero! You HAVE to add this to your collection! Nothing compares! Nothing!
