This entertaining recording by the Denver Brass will delight any brass musician who loves the music of John Williams. The arrangers; Jeremy Van Hoy, Kenneth Singleton and Kaitlin Odil, do an impressive job at capturing the spirit of Williams's music. The musicians excel at playing woodwind and string parts that are not necessarily idiomatic for brass players and renowned recording engineer Bruce Leek superbly masters the brass sound.
I really enjoy John Williams music and having a brass ensemble play some really great arrangements is fantastic. I would recommend this if anything for track 11 and 16. Fantastic John Williams pieces you do not hear often.
Since this cd is the only one which contains John Williams's one particular music, this is a must have for all Williams-fans. I bought the cd for the one Williams-composition, and to be honest, I didn't listen to any of the other tracks after a first glimpse into them. In fact all tracks are orchestrated for brass mainly, and it makes all the music sound simple, which is not so good to listen to. Anyway, buy this cd, if you wanna own something rare that the master of film music has written.
