Just how does a brass quintet from Toronto become the most traveled classical act on the scene today? The Canadian Brass, called "The Marx Brothers of Brass" by the New York Times, has been cheered in concerts around the world for over 20 years. Their nearly 30 albums define them as the most successful crossover group in history. This fascinating look into the makings of a musical institution is a story to be enjoyed by musicians and music lovers. Flavored with the whimsy that has become the trademark of the group, the book is an amusing romp through their career, featuring a revealing look into the recording industry, extensive interviews with each player, dozens of amusing anecdotes, and over a hundred photos.
