Uniquely ambitious was trumpeter/composer Graham Ashton in using a research grant to explore new music form many cultures and create an album for his brass ensemble, using exotic instruments from several continents: Sitars, Tablas, Shakuhachi, Koto, Sho, Bodhran, Penny-Whistle, Bandeoneon & Didgeridoo! The whole booklet is online and it makes for an absorbing read, following which you won't be able to resist hearing how it all melds together. A really worth-while extension of the brass ensemble repertoire … recommended unreservedly.
