BRASS ATTACK BBZ · TIJUANA TAXI (SINGLE)









BRASS ATTACK
Johnny Britt, Willie Bradley, Rob Zinn

Tijuana Taxi

24 Feb. 2020










Brass Attack BBZ está compuesto por los trompetistas Willie Bradley, Rob Zinn y Johnny Britt. Brass Attack BBZ ya está listo para presentarse en el Festival Smooth Jazz Festival de San Diego 2020 el 11 de julio. "Tan pronto como supimos del trío, fue obvio", dijeron los promotores. Los fanáticos de Smooth Jazz merecen algo fresco. Nunca ha habido un trío de trompetistas de esta reputación y popularidad que actúen como un conjunto.

El primer sencillo de Brass Attack BBZ es una nueva versión de Tijuana Taxi, el gran éxito de 1966 del grupo Tijuana Brass de Herb Alpert. Brass Attack BBZ le da un giro único a este clásico atemporal.

Britt cita: “Cuando Willie, Rob y yo decidimos unir fuerzas para este proyecto, inmediatamente pensamos en Herb Alpert y su canción Tijuana Taxi. Herb Albert es uno de los innovadores únicos de la trompeta y fue pionero en traer el sonido de la trompeta a la música pop”. Brass Attack BBZ tiene el honor de producir, organizar e interpretar esta canción clásica como un trío de trompetas. El arreglo de Brass Attack BBZ infunde una sensación fresca, contemporánea de hip hop, R&B y soul para su interpretación.

La idea central de Brass Attack BBZ es que tres trompetistas consumados actúen como una unidad y al mismo tiempo le permitan a cada músico su propio espacio para brillar como individuo. Tijuana Taxi presenta a Rob tocando el fliscorno, Johnny agrega su característica Sordina Harmon y Willie toca su trompeta conmovedora. La combinación de las 3 cuernas le da a la canción un ambiente de totalmente contemporáneo.

Grabado en Master Piece Studios en Detroit, Vella Recording Studios en West Hills, California y Wind Studios en Wilmington, DE. Tils Taxi es mezclado por Nils en Nils Music Studios, West Hills, California y materizado por Ron Boustead en Resolution Mastering, Sherman Oaks, California.

Brass Attack BBZ is comprised of trumpet recording artists Willie Bradley, Rob Zinn and Johnny Britt. People are hearing the buzz and talking about the trio. Brass Attack BBZ is already set to perform at the San Diego 2020 Smooth Jazz Festival on July 11th. “As soon as we heard about the trio it was a no brainer” said the promoters. Smooth Jazz fans deserve something fresh. There has never been a trio of trumpet players of this reputation and popularity performing as an ensemble.   

Brass Attack BBZ’s first single is a fresh rendition of Tijuana Taxi, the 1966 smash hit from Herb Alpert’s group Tijuana Brass. Brass Attack BBZ puts their own unique spin on this timeless classic.

Britt quotes, “When Willie, Rob and I decided to join forces for this project, we immediately thought of Herb Alpert and his song Tijuana Taxi. Herb Albert is one of the unique innovators of the trumpet and pioneered bringing the sound of the trumpet to Pop Music”. Brass Attack BBZ is honored to produce, arrange and perform this classic song as a trumpet trio. The Brass Attack BBZ arrangement infuses a fresh, contemporary hip hop, R&B and soul feel to their interpretation.  

The central idea of Brass Attack BBZ  is for three accomplished trumpeters to perform as a unit while still allowing each musician their own space to shine as an individual. Tijuana Taxi features Rob playing flugelhorn, Johnny adding his signature harmon mute and Willie chiming in with his soulful trumpet. The blend of the 3 horns gives the song a totally contemporary hip vibe.

The record was recorded at Master Piece Studios in Detroit, Vella Recording Studios in West Hills, California and Wind Studios in Wilmington, DE. Tijuana Taxi is mixed by Nils at Nils Music Studios, West Hills, California and mastered by Ron Boustead at Resolution Mastering, Sherman Oaks, California

YOUNG GUN SILVER FOX · CANYONS








YOUNG GUN SILVER FOX

Canyons

21 Feb. 2020


Label: Légère Recordings









Con sus dos primeros álbumes "West End Coast" (2015) y "AM Waves" (2018), Andy Platts y Shawn Lee, más conocidos como Young Gun Silver Fox, formularon una versión moderna de los clásicos sonidos West Coast y soft rock. El tercer álbum "Canyons" desarrolla la fórmula con diez composiciones bien pensadas, armonías maravillosas, metales incisivos e imágenes de sonido inimitables.

El enfoque de Young Gun Silver Fox se ha hecho con el respeto mundial. Tocaron en reconocidos festivales de jazz europeos (North Sea Jazz, Überjazz o Pori Jazz), hicieron sold sout varias veces el Amsterdam Paradiso y fueron la única banda actual que apareció en el documental de televisión de Soft Rock "I Can Go For That" en la BBC .

Al igual que los dos álbumes predecesores, "Canyons" fue una vez más compuesta, grabada y producida por Platts & Lee en su estudio de Londres. Una característica sorprendente esta vez son los arreglos de Nichol Thomson (Incognito, Robbie Williams, Annie Lennox, Gregory Porter). Las diez nuevas canciones son un viaje increíble a través de todas las facetas de la era dorada del West Coast entre 1974 y 1984. "Who Needs Words", "Long Distance Love Affair" o "Things We Left Unsaid" también se pueden encontrar en álbumes de héroes del género como Pages, Stylus y Player. "Dream Woman" tiene un toque de Chicago, "Danny Jamaica" es quizás el loco tema musical de una serie de televisión perdida de la década de 1970. Un verdadero álbum de AOR incluye la gran balada ("All This Love") y los mejores éxitos pop ("Kids", "Private Paradise").

"Canyons" se refiere a la importancia de los valles alrededor de Los Ángeles para el sonido West Coast. Algunos de los álbumes más importantes de la década de 1970 se crearon en Topanga y Laurel Canyon, eran simplemente lugares místicos y mágicos. Incluso si Platts y Lee no estuvieran allí, sus "cañones" transportarían esta magia al presente.

···························

With their first two albums "West End Coast" (2015) and "AM Waves" (2018), Andy Platts and Shawn Lee, better known as Young Gun Silver Fox, formulated a modern version of the classic West Coast and soft rock sounds. The third album "Canyons" consequently develops the formula with ten well thought-out compositions, wonderful harmonies, incisive brass and inimitable sound images.

Young Gun Silver Fox's approach has worldwide respect. They played well-known European jazz festivals (North Sea Jazz, Überjazz or Pori Jazz), sold out several times the Amsterdam Paradiso and were the only current band to feature in the soft rock TV documentary "I Can Go For That" on the BBC.
Like the two predecessors, "Canyons" was once again composed, recorded and produced by Platts & Lee in their London studio. A striking feature this time is the brass arranged by Nichol Thomson (Incognito, Robbie Williams, Annie Lennox, Gregory Porter). The ten new songs are an incredible journey through all facets of the golden era of soft rock between 1974 and 1984. "Who Needs Words", "Long Distance Love Affair" or "Things We Left Unsaid" could also be found on albums by genre heroes like Pages, Stylus and Player. "Dream Woman" has a Chicago touch, "Danny Jamaica" is perhaps the crazy theme music of a lost TV series from the 1970s. A real AOR album includes the great ballad ("All This Love") and top pop hits ("Kids", "Private Paradise").

"Canyons" refers to the importance of the valleys around Los Angeles to the West Coast sound: Some of the most important albums of the 1970s were created in Topanga and Laurel Canyon, they were simply mystical, magical places. Even if Platts & Lee were not there, their "canyons" transport this magic into the present.
