Album Notes
This group of extraordinarily talented horn players has been gathering international acclaim from artists and critics alike, since 1991. Top session players all, members of the Hornheads have performed and/or recorded with artists such as Prince, Janet Jackson, Rod Stewart, Babyface, James Brown, Jimmy Jam, Aretha Franklin, Pedro Abrunhosa, Louie Bellson, Lenny Kravitz, Ray Charles, Maceo Parker, Sammy Davis Jr., Clark Terry , Dizzy Gillespie, Tony Bennett, Doc Severinsen, and many others.

While members of Prince and the NPG (1991-2000), the Hornheads recorded on more than 20 CDs and performed for over 2 million concert goers in 20 countries. Q Magazine, London, described them as a "peerless horn section...playing in bare brilliant syncopation, punching with staccato precision beyond science or synclavier. Prince splashes their insouciant versatility all over the set list."

"The Hornheads are terrific. They broke the place [Bellson Jazz Fest] up." -Louie Bellson - jazz legend

"Hornheads is a remarkable enterprise...the tracks are brilliant exhibits of how talented these people are...this is a CD U should all hear and appreciate!"
-The Continental - Rotterdam, Holland

The CD came in a convenient time
I heard this album on tape 6-7 years ago, so when I saw the CD online, I had to get it. It's great. It makes me want to get the other HornHeads CD that I saw. Much props to the HornHeads. The CD demonstrates their talent superbly (spell?).


Awesome !!!
This is awesome ! Really great and I'm so happy with this CD. Still can't believe my ears when I listen to it, never heard something that powerful, clean, so talented, smooth and so good as this. I really hope the Hornheads will bring out more of this stuff. Can't wait !

Phil Burton

This group defines "tight ensemble work"
All musician groups strive for a tight ensemble performance. Listen to the Hornheads, you will know it is not impossible to achieve.

Rick Horn

Cleanest group sound!!
Some of the cleanest and tightest playing I've ever heard. A definite out of the ordinary approach to jazz ensemble playing. Played the CD for some of my high school band students and they were crazy about it. Great solos, too!!

Robert Lozano

Horn Heads
These musicians just continue to raise the bar with their artistry.

Dick Cale

The CD's are incredible. Fantastic musicianship throughout!
I was introduced to this group recently by a fellow musician. I ordered two of the 3 by the 5 horn group. I listen to them constantly. Each time I listen I hear new things. These guys are fantastic. Not only are the ensemble writings unique, the jazz on all selections is out of sight. Congrats to the group and keep the recordings coming!!

Deb C

So funky and tight it makes my heart stop - fantastic!


I thank these guys for making this CD! You will too if you buy it!!

Schledorn Franz

Thanks a lot for this CD.

Dave Brook
