Any recording from Philip Cobb, principal trumpet with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, and still one of the finest cornet players in the world, is always a reason for great joy and our featured track from his latest CD ‘Love Songs’ doesn’t disappoint.

I’ve also got dance music by a 17th century Italian lutenist, music played by the National Champions Band, Foden’s, and an instrument that you don’t see or hear in many places today, but which is a big part of our brass heritage.

So listen on, and expect the unexpected!
