Notes & Reviews:

Gaudete Brass makes its Cedille Records debut with Chicago Moves, an album of new and diverse American works for brass quintet. All were composed in the last six years, and all but one were written expressly for the Chicago-based ensemble of young brass virtuosos and receive their world-premiere recordings on the new CD.

Classical Candor
The program begins with the brief tune Gaudete by James Woodward... "Gaudete" means "rejoice" in Latin, so that's what this opening music is all about. It sounds... cheerful... with some entertaining little harmonies bouncing around in it.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
The album ends with the best work and the strongest performance. Joan Tower's 10- minute Copperwave (2006) demands aggressiveness and technical skill, and these players sound very good as they deliver it. They are trumpeters Bill Baxtresser and Ryan Berndt, horn player Julia Filson, trombonist Hoff, and tubist Scott Tegge.
