Plains, Lakes & Nothing More.

Something we didn’t already have: Music for brass septet! (septet = a group of seven people playing music together in shared space, or on Z00m)

Historically, these kind of combos often played military music. You know, marches, fanfares & music suitable for running away really quickly. There is also a good bunch of chamber music written specifically for B7. Even Jean S. – Gene Simmons’ musically gifted older brother – wrote some.

MID WESTERN is more light-hearted than militaristic. In fact I’d call it optimistic and adventurous, and maybe slightly American-sounding.

American-sounding? What the heck is that?

I don’t know, man. It’s just the feeling.
