Canadian Brass Takes Flight CD


Canadian Brass Takes Flight is the quintessential Canadian Brass album, most famous for its inclusion of Flight of the Bumble Bee


Canadian Brass Takes Flight, the prequel to our 2016 release Perfect Landing, features a collection of some of the best brass quintet music in the classical and jazz repertoire.  The title work, Flight of the Bumble Bee, is reason enough for most to purchase this album, but the classical connoisseur will enjoy fresh takes on Brahms, Bach, Gabrieli and Scheidt.
