    Great choices! But you have Rodney Mack Philadelphia BIg Brass’ website wrong. It’s http://www.rmpbb.com

    • Michael Attaway

      Thanks for catching that! We’ll make the update immediately.

  • Terry Martin

    Surprised you left out the Brass Band
    of Battle Creek. Check out their La Forza del Destino http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSYlETbQiDY

    • Michael Attaway

      Wow! Thanks for sharing that awesome video! Is that Mark Gould conducting?

      • Terry Martin

        Indeed. Current membership includes Steve Mead on euphonium, Jens Lindemann on flugel, Wycliff Gordon on 2d trombone!

  • Chris Rupp

    You cannot even have this discussion without including the Brass Band of Battle Creek. They are amazing! Jens Lindeman, Steven Mead, Chris Jaudes, Rex Richardson, John Beck, Rodney Mack to name a few.

    • Michael Attaway

      I’m really glad that you and Terry are adding them to this list, because that ensemble is awesome! I’ve recently been checking out YouTube videos that they’ve posted, and they’ve blown my mind.

    #14. Boston Brass and #15 Brass Band of Battle Creek

    • Michael Attaway

      Thanks for the comment! You definitely are not the first person to recommend the Brass Band of Battle Creek. However, I am unfamiliar with Boston Brass. Are there any videos that you would recommend from them?
