2FM092 Comedy Brass

Posted on Jan 06, 2024

Written by Daryl Griffith, 2FM092 Comedy Brass draws from the long traditions of both British brass bands and eccentric comedy. Featuring raucous trombones, cheeky cornets, portly tuba and a dash of tuned percussion - all played live - this album covers a range of speeds and scenarios. You’ll find comic plods ("Ponderous Plod", "Elephant Ballet") and madcap frenzies ("In A Flap"), old-fashioned days out ("Funfair Waltz") and dodgy dealings ("Funny Business"). With a unique mix of slapstick humour and quaint, whimsical melodies, this album will be sure to put a smile on your face - and besides, where else would you find a blazing euphonium solo ("Bumble and Bluster")? This album will be suitable for silly and light-hearted moments in comedy, reality TV, children’s programming, advertising and documentaries. Versions, cutdowns and stems are all available, making these tracks flexible for a range of syncs.
