Hi Ang
Thanks for getting back to me...and I swear our secret is safe!!!

Seriously though I believe you have the direction just right.After the evolution of the PJBE into London Brass I thought they would carry on in the same manner, touring, concerts around the UK ,especially involving schools(I remember a great PJBE gig in 1978 or 79 where they did a Masterclass in my school then invited us to a concert after, all the names were there Philip Jones, James Watson, Frank Lloyd, John Fletcher etc)but it never seemed to materialise with London Brass.
Yet with FAB you really have taken on the mantle of all that was best about the PJBE, and the more I listen to you, the more I hear a more musical quintet, be it from the tightness of the ensemble to the sheer joy and fun(!) you have in concert.

All I can say is more power to your pucker (collectively!) and keep blowing up a storm!!

Best wishes
Lawrie
