I’m preparing this edition of our free podcast in the week leading up to the Easter weekend, and my Track of the Week reflects this time of year.
It’s a recording by a trumpet and cornet player for whom I and many others have simply run out of complimentary adjectives to describe his playing.
So I hope you'll enjoy Philip Cobb excelling in the perfect simplicity of this music by Edward Gregson.
In the other half of this podcast I'm playing The Florentiner March, by Julius Fučík, which has always intrigued me. I’ll tell you why and and when I got the chance, I made this arrangement of it for band and it’s still one of my favourites.
