How could I resist? When the name of the ensemble is the Chicago Gargoyle Brass and Organ Ensemble it immediately gets my attention. As much as I love the Canadian Brass and the Empire Brass and the handful of other brass ensembles that have been featured here on Wind & Rhythm, I admit I’m always on the lookout for great music from new brass groups. On this episode we’ll hear from some that are either new to our show, or how shall I say it - groups that have been under represented.
