As promised, this past weekend Voivod and a brass quintet, performed a special rendition of The End Of Dormancy, from last year’s The Wake, at the Montréal International Jazz Festival. And while most of us weren’t there to enjoy it, some folks in the crowd filmed it, natch. So now you can enjoy it through the magic of their videos. Huzzah! The arrangement, written by Voivod guitarist Dan Chewy Mongrain, sounds pretty great. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a professional-grade soundboard recording to emerge at some point

Fiddlin' John Carson (March 23, 1868 – December 11, 1949) was an American old-time fiddler and singer who recorded what is widely considered to be the first country music song featuring vocals and lyrics. Carson was born in (or near) Fannin County, Georgia, and grew up on a farm there. His father worked as a section foreman for the W&A Railroad Company. In his teens, Carson learned to play the fiddle, using an old Stradivari-copy violin brought from Ireland in the early 18th century

The Imperials are an American Christian music group that has been active for over 50 years. Originating as a southern gospel quartet, the innovative group would become pioneers of contemporary Christian music in the 1960s. There have been many changes for the band in membership and musical styles over the years. They would go on to win four Grammys, and be inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame.

The Western motif on the double-fold album jacket - with Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass in costume - signals this as another companion album to a TV special.

Indeed, stretches of this record reveal a tired group and a leader whose trumpet has lost much of its old zip. Even so, as on all TJB albums, there are several gems - the stunning shifts in texture and tempo that enliven the worn-out "Moon River," the.

Going Places!! is the fifth album by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass and, along. While the first four Tijuana Brass albums had been done by Alpert backed by studio musicians, demands for live appearances had dictated that Alpert put together an actual touring band. The songs on this album are a mixture of sessions featuring Alpert's touring band and other session musicians, according to the liner notes in the Shout!Factory CD release.

Volume 2 (Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass album). Volume 2 is the second album by Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass, known in this recording as "Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass". It was released in 1963 on A&M Records, and sold poorly upon initial release. After the Tijuana Brass became massively popular with hits from their later albums, Volume 2 was reissued in 1966 and eventually reached No. 17 on the Billboard album chart.
