Philip Jones Brass Ensemble

Biography (Wikipedia)

The Philip Jones Brass Ensemble, founded in 1951 by trumpeter Philip Jones, was one of the first modern classical brass ensembles to be formed. The group played either as a quintet or as a ten-piece, for larger halls. It toured and recorded extensively, and numerous arrangements were commissioned, many of which were bequeathed on Jones' death to the library of the Royal Northern College of Music.

Following Philip Jones' retirement in 1986, a number of the members of his group continued, changing their name to London Brass.
