Cool Brass and Hot Brass celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Cala Records. They derive from The London Sound, Cala’s renowned signature series. London's finest brass players and arrangers provide dazzling selections of jazz, Latin, film, show and popular music: unique performances by large ensembles of trumpets, French horns and trombones.

It started when we challenged the trombone sections of seven great London orchestras to come together to record virtuoso arrangements of well-loved music. There was instant camaraderie amongst the musicians, who inspired each other with their talent and creativity. The London Trombone Sound was the result: rich, supple and beguiling. The London Horn Sound followed, and became the best-selling horn CD ever. The London Trumpet Sound also hit the spot, then The London Horn Sound returned, for the Give It One album and The Sound of Music Jazz Suite.

Cool Brass brings together some of the more relaxing popular tunes from The London Sound collection. As for Hot Brass —well, it’s the opposite.
