Reviewed by Paddy Hudspith

For those who associate brass music with colliery bands, military parades and possibly a limited stylistic range, prepare to be pleasantly surprised. The famous Black Dyke Band, under the direction of Dr Nicholas J Childs, offer on 'Only For You' a selection designed to work together as "a concert programme" of pieces by their own Paul Lovatt-Cooper. Fulsome liner notes describe in detail the genesis and development of each track which cover a range of styles over and above what might usually be expected. I was particularly impressed by the judicious and effectively creative use of percussion (no surprise there as Lovatt-Cooper is Black Dyke's percussionist), most obviously on an arrangement for xylophone of Mozart's beloved "Rondo Alla Turca", but also on the energetic "Starburst And Canyons" and the dance music-influenced "Wall Of Sound". Obviously brass bands can bring the power but there is subtlety in great evidence here on the quieter passages and interludes. Soloists Richard Marshall (principal cornet), Gary Curtain (principal euphonium), Zoe Hancock (flugel horn) and Paul Woodward (co-principal trombone) bring their substantial expertise to the fore for added 'oomph' (or should that be 'oompa'?).

A second collection of Black Dyke percussionist Lovatt-Cooper's original compositions and arrangements.

Only for You is the second album of music by Paul Lovatt-Cooper, recorded by Black Dyke Band and directed by Dr Nicholas Childs. It has been three years since the release of the first album of music by Paul Lovatt-Cooper, Walking with Heroes, which has been a stunning success. The album itself has been a best seller and the music featured has been purchased and played by brass bands all over the world.

The music on this follow-up album includes pieces that concert-goers have already enjoyed in performances given worldwide by Black Dyke Band and pieces that have been written more recently. The music on this album encompasses various styles including concert openers and finales, a traditional brass band march, solos, programmatic music, jazz, pop and rock styles to provide the listener with a wide and varied programme to enjoy.

The idea behind the album title was simple. Paul Lovatt-Cooper has had many requests from fans of his music around the world to include certain pieces on this album, all of which have been heard and enjoyed in various concerts. As this album does include many of the requested pieces, it has turned into a private concert of PLC’s music that you can enjoy at your leisure. Therefore the album is quite simply ‘Only for You’.
