The riffs are all performed by various combinations of these and this CD provides an in-depth study of the range and versatility of the contemporary brass section. Format is fairly logical, with five main stylistic sections, namely: Tower of Power, James Brown Style, Earth Wind & Fire, Rock & Roll, and Reggae.
