Their first CD release, Rhapsody, does just that. The quintet performs the music of George Gershwin with drummer Alex Trahjano, pianist Aviram Reichart, and soprano Elizabeth Stoner.
It's a great album of attractive music for two reasons. The arrangements are first-rate, and the Spectrum Brass Quintet is made up of five outstanding musicians. Their virtuosity shines on this recording, but never gets in the way of the music.
