*NEW* - Cookin' with Brass
Cookin' with Brass is the latest recording project by the Illinois Brass Band, and the first recording by the band in over ten years. The tracks were recorded over a series of sessions in May and early-June 2013 at First United Methodist Church Arlington Heights, where the band regularly rehearses.
The pieces selected are a selection of pieces that might be typically performed at one of the band's outdoor summer concerts.
Live and Kickin'
Live and Kickin' is a collection of pieces from two of our concerts in March and May 2003. The CD was released in December 2003 and features one of the most outstanding British trombone players, Brett Baker, who was featured at our March 2003 concert. Along with “Over the Rainbow” and “Teddy Trombone”, Mr. Baker played the World Premier of a new piece by Robin Dewhurst entitled “Homelands”.
The album contains marches by the American composer J.J. Richards and a march by the well known British composer William Rimmer.
Also on the CD are two of the very best pieces in the brass band repertoire: “Resurgam” by Eric Ball and “Harmony Music” by Philip Sparke. The Broadway musical “Hello Dolly” is also represented on the CD.
Recorded and mastered by Ron Rolland, Fine Audio Recording/Mastering, Chicago, IL.

Shakin' ... Not Stirred
The inspiration for this 2000 recording came about largely as a result of playing Philip Wilby's stunning “Jazz: Symphonic Dances for Brass Band” as the band's own choice material at the 1998 NABBA Competition in Lexington, KY. In addition to the live NABBA performance, this CD contains lighter jazz selections from American popular repertoire.
Championship Brass released in 1998, contains compositions played at the 1996 and 1997 NABBA Championships. The Illinois Brass Band won the Championship section of the NABBA Championships in 1996 held in Columbus, OH, as well as the 1997 NABBA Championships held in Red Wing, MN.
Hark! is The Illinois Brass Band's second holiday recording featuring a fabulous collection of sacred and secular favorites. Hark! features antiphonal brass pieces, traditional carols, and swinging jazz versions of holiday classics. It will quickly put you in the holiday spirit!
A Christmas Fantasy
A Christmas Fantasy, The Illinois Brass Band's first CD, features the First Presbyterian Church Choir of Libertyville, IL. Christmas is a season of coming together to celebrate, and this album, recorded in 1995, brings together a variety of styles, appealing to a wide audience.
