ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Sounds of the South" by the Texas Brass Ensemble.

Darryl Bayer and Eddie Lewis: Trumpets
Thomas Hulten: Trombone
Alicia Watson: French Horn
David Kirk: Tuba
Stephen Hambright: Percussion

1. Texas
by Eddie Lewis
Composed on the Fourth of July to be used as an original Patriotic work. Composition techniques include use of mixolydian introduction, clave-derived bass line, 16th century counterpoint and lydian augmented planning.

2. Galveston Bay
by Thomas Hulton
The inspiration for Thomas to write this tune comes from his first visit to Galveston Island. Feeling warm sea breezes, seeing blue gray waters and palm trees, he thought "this is not even remotely like Sweden in February".

3. Bayou Bugs
by Thomas Hulton
A fun song for jogging along Houston's Braes Bayou. Thomas reminds you to close your mouth while running to avoid catching any of the Bayou Bugs.

4. Buffaloes on the Speedway
by Thomas Hulton
Houston has grown and so has this well known thoroughfare. From he rumble and smell of cattle herds to soccer-moms astride huge SUVs with cell phones holstered, this is a song of the contemporary south.

5. Working on Main
by Thomas Hulton
Houston's South Main, Astrodome area. Looking for a good time? This song suggests an explicit story line.

6. Big Foot Jake
by Thomas Hulton
Composed for Jakob Hulton. As an infant, Jakob was blessed with extraordinarily big feet. He has since grown into them, but still loves to dance to swinging dixieland.

7. Gumbo Magic
by Eddie Lewis
What happens when you swing salsa rhythms? Answer: You get Second Line. Second line is a style of music indigenous to New Orleans, street bands, and Mardi Gras celebrations.

8. Jugamos el Juego
by Eddie Lewis
Stylistically straddling a mambo, polka and merengue.

9. La Cancion do Alguien
by Eddie Lewis
This song was originally written for jazz combo. The use of sostenuto emphasizes the harmonic structure.

10. Baile de los Niños
by Eddie Lewis
The canonic round takes all of the traditional rhythms of salsa percussion instruments and gives them pitches.

11. La Virgen de la Macarena
arr. Geoffrey Bergler
A tribute to legendary trumpeter Raphael Mendez. The familiar opening and closing sections frame the rarely heard Paso Double section.

12. Amazing Grace
arr. Dr. Thomas Jenkins
The chords are a recollection of those played by the piano accompanist for trumpeter Charlie Spivak in the late night performances at Atlanta's Hyatt Regency Hotel. The introduction and bridge are composed of original material featuring bucket-muted trombone.

13. Pilska Polska - The Sounds of Sweden by Thomas Hulten and guest vocalists.
