Just seen a CD for sale on Amazon called "Bollywood Brass". It's described as a cross between Bollywood music and brass bands!!!

Has anyone heard of it and can anyone tell me if it's any good
As an expert vindaloo tester and Indian restaurant visitor I'm very intrigued!

They took part in a brass festival organised by John Wallace at the Royal Academy a year or so ago. Although I didn't hear them myself they seemed to go down very well - certainly very different!
