    Hello Brass Banders

    We have a really top class show for your this week. Featured bands are from: Canada, Switzerland, Norway, Australia, USA and as always we have some of the best sounds from home grown bands from here in the UK.

    We are playing recordings from the present day and others that date back to the 1970s, 60s and we even go back to 1942 and that is a piece which has been requested by one of our regular listeners in New Zealand.

    Soloists - well these are masterclass performance including one from a bass trombone player who few if any others will be better.

    We even find space in this very busy show for a wonderful female vocalist from Switzerland.

    Don't forget if you have a request or a question about the world of brass bands you can contact me by email: or through my website There are two hour shows on my website dating back to the summer of 2014. My show has been running now since December 2007.

    Dean Jones (b: 1976) is the son of established Salvation Army composer David E. Jones, Dean currently works as a sub-editor in the SA's UK music department. He and his family worship at Reading Lower Earley corps and in his spare time he leads Salvation Brass, a popular UK-based contemporary brass group. With over 20 pieces published by the Army so far,

    His contribution to the Salvation Army's bands in the past ten years is significant.

    One of Dean's most successful compositions is his first major work for band: Glorifico Aeternum published 2005.

    Since then Dean has provided further major works in Supremacy published 2007, Lord of All and Validus Deus as well as a stream of well-written functional arrangements.

    A versatile composer, Dean has the happy knack of writing music of substance in all kinds of genres and for all sizes of ensemble.
