"It's wonderful, it's marvellous and it's the best recording in the series so far—not only because of the sound, which is alternately brassy and mellow and sensuous, but because the arrangements are so well crafted and the programme so perfectly fits the ensemble. It's not easy to to successfully mix Eric Clapton's Layla with Gabrieli, Monterverdi and Mancini, but Crees, Simon and these fine players convince you that the whole thing is going to work even before the first selection—a dazzling fanfare by Crees—has ended....What else can one say? It's a smash!"
CD Review - Performance 10, Sound Quality 9

Cala once again brings you some of the finest orchestral musicians in London; this time the focus is on the trombone section. With outstanding arrangements by Eric Crees, principal trombone of the London Symphony Orchestra, this disc represents the ultimate showcase for this versatile instrument. In a blistering finale featuring 76 trombones—yes 76!—playing Meredith Wilson's classic 76 Trombones this has got to be the most trombone players ever assembled for a recording, and the sound has to be heard to be believed. From the cheeky jazz treatment of the Pink Panther theme tune, via recognised classics, to a roof-raising interpretation of Eric Clapton's Layla this disc is great fun...indulge yourself!
