"[The Epic Brass] played everything from extremely fine baroque quintets to
operatic transcriptions to Dixieland jazz.... this concert was for discerning music lovers of all ages.... Transcribing works for a brass quintet is a particular talent....
[Raney's arrangements] showed just how rich and full even a small ensemble can be."
"The Epic Brass tore the place up . . . playing everything from Rimsky-Korsakov
to Khachaturian to Duke Ellington, and even Louis Prima . . . With Raney as the genial ring-master, the Epic Brass . . . weave exciting tapestries of blazing brass sounds . . ."
