    I'll second this one. Just reviewed it for the BB. Stunning throughout. Just makes you want to practice until the neighbours' fists bleed!

    Go to World of Brass and buy it now.

    I'll third it. It's awesome. It only wants to make you practice, once you have decided that running over your instrument would be very costly.

    Ian Bousfield - Pryor Engagement. The really scary thing is, I heard him live doing some of this stuff last summer, and it was just as amazing live. No trickery here - just a definite virtuostic performance.

    Instead of seconding and thirding previous nominations, maybe you can come up with some more CD's to be nominated? That will only make the actual voting more interesting!

    Sorry - Like other voting areas on tmp I thought that this thread too, would require a seconder. Just re-read the top part and it appears that it doesn't. Oops! :oops: . However, that doesn't change my mind. Earlier this year, I may have been able to suggest other solo CD's, but having heard the one mentioned above (I won't put it down again in case it counts as a fourthing nomination), it is so far in front of anything else that I would be hard pushed to name anything in the same league.

    I'll second the above thread. So, at the risk of fifthing 'Pryor Engagement', I'll shut up. There does seem to be a lot of 'seconding' elsewhere that isn't attracting any ire, though.

    Looking back over the year, there haven't been a vast number of solo cds that have come my way, and the two referred to above have got to be in contention.

    To give another option, I would turn again to the trombone, but this time to "In Shining Armour", a double cd featuring Brett Baker and Paul Woodward of Black Dyke, accompanied by the Yorkshire Imperial Urquhart Travel Band. Produced in conjunction with this year's International Trombone Festival in Birmingham, it includes a number of substantial works from both the SA and secular repertoire, together with affectionate performances of some minor classics from the past.

    In that case, I'd also like to nominate "Shining Waters" by Dutchman Huug Steketee (on cornet), accompanied by the Hepworth Band (and joined by Peter Masseurs on trumpet on 2 tracks as well). Most pieces on the CD were composed by Huug himself. Excellent CD...
