O’s Notes: This is an ensemble of brass with a beat. The latter comes from a couple of drummers: New Yorker George Stolz and leader Peter Dieterle from Switzerland. The music has a New Orleans marching band feel which comes off very well when applied to Hancock’s “Chameleon” & “Cantaloup Island”, with a cool solo from Mario Peralta on baritone sax. The band was established in Spain and is now expanding their audience across Europe. Cum Laude introduces their approach to a global audience. It’s unique and welcome.
