As bands return from their summer break, Pennine Music has two new releases that are guaranteed to entertain on both the concert and contest stage.
Frank Sinatra's hit, 'It was a very good Year' tells of a performer's life as they reflect upon their past, aged 17 to the autumn of their years.
Brilliantly arranged for the first time for brass band with either a soloist (or vocalist), or for added entertainment value, spread the years across various (aging!) players in the band (the scoring is perfect for this) it is a cracker for bands looking to add something different to their programmes.
Fanfare and Funk
Meanwhile, Carlton Main Frickley cornet player, Sam Fisher has produced a fantastic concert opener called 'Fanfare & Funk'.
At just over three minutes, the music is in two clear sections, depicting the contrasting styles and absolutely pulsating with rhythm and drive.
It's got the lot in fact — complete with the chance to add choreography to enhance that opening experience.
