‘Whatever it takes’ MHP 709
A tremendous weekend was spent in the beautiful village of Higham Ferrers in Northamptonshire recording a solo album with John Lee, the flugel horn player of Brighouse and Rastrick Band accompanied by the girls of “Boobs and Brass”. The locally based all female brass band was formed three years ago with its principal aim being to raise money for the Breast Cancer Campaign. Since that time over £36,000 has already been raised.
The band was conducted by the renowned conductors, Richard Evans and Derek Renshaw, and on Sunday we were joined by international trombone star Carol Jarvis who wowed everybody with her rendition of the great trombone solo in the Cole Porter song “I’ve got you under my skin”
The project was the idea of the Brighouse soloist who has raised all the funding and the CD will be launched at a concert at the Lighthouse Theatre Kettering on Saturday 28th of November where the Brighouse and Rastrick Band will be the guests. All the proceeds from the concert and the sale of the CDs will go to the Breast Cancer Campaign.
