"I am a tuba player in a brass quintet. I have played--and listened to--hundreds of quintet charts. I probably own 20-30 quintet CDs, yet of all of them, this is the very best. The arrangements here are sublime, and the performances by the Empire Brass are as nuanced as anything I've ever heard for brass quintet. The West Side Story and Porgy and Bess suites performed here are not the same as what are in the printed sheet music "as performed by the Empire Brass." The arrangements on this CD are harder and better. I listen to this recording over and over again, and am awed by the individual musicians and the ensemble playing. If you don't own this one, buy it now! You won't regret it."
