Heavyweights Brass Band are part of the Uma Nota community. Christopher Butcher, the trombonist and main activist behind the band, is a former housemate, a friend, and one sexy guy. Anyways… so their new CD Brasstronomical is pretty dope and the release is going to be killer. Check the details below.
This country’s greatest purveyors of feel-good horn music burst onto the Canadian jazz scene with their energetic brass band covers of contemporary pop hits. Now with Brasstronomical, the Heavyweights are offering a unique sound with emphasis on their original compositions. They delve deeper and more eclectically into each musical direction implied on their first album. Brasstronomical reveals the band’s music is stronger, bolder, funkier and more mature than ever before.
Here is their new CD streaming this week only!
Not only all of the above but for the show check their special guests: Jane Bunnett, Toronto jazz performer and composer extraordinaire, Jay Douglas, Jamaican-born soul singer, Luis Obregoso, Latin percussionist of the most amazing kind, and the great DJ General Eclectic! and to top it off STreet Brass, the Uma Nota produced band that plays street carnival music from across the Americas, will be opening up (this will be fun).
