Solid Brass


This was Solid Brass, a quintet that had been in existence since 1999.  We played two basic types of music, Church and Ragtime-era.   Our players were:  Jim Bailey (trumpet), Howard Griffiths (trumpet), Jim Brakey (french horn), Bill Denison (trombone), and Bill Rowland (tuba).

Mostly we played arrangements that I have written, and some are published by BVD Press. I have also made some of my arrangements available for free download (pdf files) and you can listen to a sound file rendition of some of them (MP3 files).
