To effect a PERFECT LANDING all systems must be operating at one hundred percent efficiency -- and that is where Canadian Brass finds itself today. As a follow up to their best selling TAKES FLIGHT recording, Canadian Brass has once again expanded the repertoire for the Brass Quintet! Due to the dedication of countless people throughout the incredible Canadian Brass journey -- players, writers, managers, concert presenters, instrument designers, music education specialists, support staff and of course, family -- Canadian Brass now enjoys a leadership role in the chamber music world once dominated by only the finest string quartets. Meanwhile the Brass routinely meets receptive audiences more typically witnessed in pop culture. This disc represents a celebration of this PERFECT LANDING for the entire CB community.

Once again, Canadian Brass has another great CD. From "Perfect Landing" through "Passacaglia and Fugue", it is exceptional. It embodies what we all have come to expect from the Canadian Brass: Great arrangements, great precision, and great pitch. It is no wonder that they are the best brass quintet in the world. This CD is a perfect landing for your collection.

Canadian Brass has scored yet another winner with Perfect Landing. Some of these arrangements are new to me, and some I am familiar with, making it a great mix to listen to. Their playing just seems to get more and more seamless and is an inspiration to every brass player that listens to them. Thanks, guys, for continuing to push the envelope, both for the listener, and for those of us performers who love the brass quintet.

I was at the concert at Marywood University in Scranton,PA and loved every minute of it! At first I was not going to purchase the CD but I just needed a second listen to their music.
