A brief history of The Six Brown Brothers by Dr. Bruce Vermazen


***** CBC Sound Advice ***** FIVE (5) STARS!!! "I enjoyed everything about this new CD. It's a great tribute to a previous age, and a talented Canadian group of musicians and entertainers. The music re-creates a thick slice of the vaudeville days, with many of the original arrangements used, lovingly performed with the utmost respect and admiration by the Royal City Saxophone Quartet. Five stars." -- Rick Phillips, Host/Producer of Sound Advice on CBC Radio One and CBC Radio Two.

NOTE: Jurgen Gothe of CBC's DiscDrive included the RCSQ on his 20th Anniversary "Best of DiscDrive" box set.

" outstanding recording... you will be charmed as well as impressed" -- Jack Rummel, Columnist, "A great CD and true to the original style.  I think it is one of the best sax ensemble historical CDs I have ever heard." -- David Gibson, Editor of Saxophone Journal "Expertly played with style and enthusiasm I am sure the Brothers would approve of. This is the type of album I never get tired of hearing. It is happy, upbeat and great fun. It is also true to the music of the time. I would call it a musical history lesson. The musicians apparently love what they do because it shows in every song. Hats off and thanks to the R.C.S.Q. for this first class job in preserving a musical heritage." -- Jim Diffey, KVMR 89.5 FM, Nevada City , California , USA "A wonderful tribute to the Six Brown Brothers!" -- Paul Coats, Columnist, Sax On The Web:
