Subject: RE: English trad. songs with brass accomp.
As well as occasional use of actual brass bands, Brass Monkey could get some striking brass-band effects by combining their trumpet & trombone & saxophone, recorded forward, with their other, more 'standard' folk-style instruments like accordion & guitar behind, on tracks like their superb rendering of The Old Grenadiers March, remembered from the [alas!] late Howard Evans's days as a Brigade of Guards bandsman.
