this is tubagility

This is Tubagility is the inspiring new album from Nick Etheridge featuring some of the UK’s finest musicians and young composers combined in a striking CD and poster package designed by London artist Helen Ashton. The album showcases an extraordinary collection of fun and challenging pieces from Funk, Big Band Jazz to Prog Rock, all served up with virtuosity, exuberance and seriously fat baselines….

Nick has just finished his latest album project. This fantastic new collection has been recorded over the last year and is entitled THIS IS TUBAGILITY.

The album is both original and challenging, featuring wonderful new compositions from young British composers. You will also hear some freshly interpreted works of Prog Rock, Funk and Jazz that feature breathtaking performances by Nick’s ensemble BASSCRAFT and The Band from U.N.C.L.E.

THIS IS TUBAGILITY has new works from award winning Scottish composer Tom Harrold. BEASTIE is for tuned percussion, Drums and Tuba and a new funk work TUBAMS includes Drums and Hammond Organ. Tom’s works really let the Tuba groove with the engine room of the band.

A highlight of the album is the astonishing Concerto for Tuba, Marimba and Rock Band WHAT THE HECK performed by BASSCRAFT. This substantial four movement work by John Paul Gandy is a virtuoso showcase for both soloist and ensemble and is part homage to Frank Zappa which romps through a host of styles, textures, both comic and serious.

BASSCRAFT also opens the album with a fiery performance of the King Crimson’s classic 21ST CENTURY SCHIZOID MAN.

The Band from U.N.C.L.E. returns with another set of crazy and much loved tunes which include ENTER THE DRAGON and THE NEW AVENGERS. The electro pop classic POPCORN is even reworked for 4 Tubas, kit and Stylophone!
And the album ends with cover of "The Planet plan" by United Future Organization!!

かつてDJである僕らが、LONDONに渡りTHE BEATLESで有名なABBY ROAD STUDIOで録音した曲を、10年以上たったいまEUROPEのCLASSIC音楽奏者たちが真面目にCOVERしている。それも原曲に忠実なARRANGEだったりして、それはそれだけでもまあ光栄な事であるのだが、はっきり言ってそれはそれで原曲を越えるとかそういうもんでもなかったりして、まさに世の常のうちにあり、やっぱ音楽って面白い。
