On paper, 27 top trumpet players in an ensemble sounds pretty impressive, but this group actually delivers the goods in both the pop and classical fields on this obvious crossover effort. Opening with "Sing, Sing, Sing," done in the manner of Benny Goodman (only with more horns) and complete with a percussion section doing its damnedest to stay in hailing distance of Gene Krupa, they work their way through an inventive version of "Misty" and then tackle the Beatles on "Penny Lane," the latter (big surprise) giving full play to its piccolo trumpet part. The more traditional longhair music that follows, by Rossini, Rodrigo, and Sousa, is also in the category of crowd-pleasing material, and the result is one of the more delightful orchestral pop albums of recent years.
