The band was invited to record works by the Swiss publishing house Obrasso - all with a taste of Americana and the hit shows of Broadway in particular.
16 tracks from composers
and arrangers such as Bruce Fraser, Alan Fernie, Sandy Smith, Goff Richards and
Derek Broadbent were featured on music that had a distinctly American feel of
the hit shows of Broadway.
The band was enjoying a successful
contesting spell under the baton of MD Nicholas Childs, whilst featured
soloists included principal cornet player Ian Porthouse, who was return a
decade later to become Musical Director of the band.
