The band was back in the recording studio this weekend with three sessions in two days spent recording tracks for the new CD which is due out in December.


The CD is mix of old and new as the band recorded established classic repertoire of Dean Goffin and Bramwell Coles alongside brand new music from the pen of Paul Sharman and Martin Cordner.


There were three solo works recorded: a Euphonium solo displaying the technical brilliant of our principal Euphonium David Taylor, a wonderful vehicle to display the lyricism and beautiful tone of principal Horn Neil Blessett and a relaxed latin Jazz arrangement by Bill Himes which gave Deputy Bandmaster Mark Sharman the opportunity to shine and to show his versatility as a player.


The band was delighted to record with Pure Technical Services (Sheffield) once again and it was a particular pleasure to have ISB Solo Cornet, Regent Hall Deputy Bandmaster and prolific composer Paul Sharman assist with the production of this CD.


The band was in fine form and the production team were outstanding.  The end product should be something to watch out for and should be the perfect gift for Christmas when it is released at the beginning of December (anticipated release date tbc).
