When most people think of brass bands, they generally think of New Orleans-style Dixieland bands. Fanfares is an overview of the brass band tradition from around the world. Africa, India, the Middle East, and Cuba are all represented on this excellent recording that showcases the true diversity of the brass band tradition. This is fun, generally fast-paced stuff that's recommended to open-minded listeners.
