Brass Ensemble Music from Popular Music of North America

Today's class, "Brass Ensemble Music from Popular Music of North America" featured a variety of groups that incorporated or featured a brass ensemble within the more popular genres of Rock, Jazz/Fusion, Funk, and Soul.

These groups have made a significant impact and many of them have sold millions of albums and/or were awarded Grammys. We didn't get to a few, including the Washington Symphonic Brass Classic Rock CDHere are the related Links:
