  • Originally for brass septet.  Versions for brass quintet or brass sextet (3 trp, 3 trb)  
  • "The best [works on this CD] are two brass septets,  David Froom’s Kick Off! and Robert Patterson’s Fantasy and Stomping Music.  Froom, who teaches composition and theory at St. Mary’s [College of Maryland], gave these outstanding brass players lots to do in a work that says a great deal in four minutes.  The ending, with trumpeter Silberschlag on a stratospheric F-sharp, is spectacular."  (American Record Guide)
