Boston, USA – Brave Combo has a new album out on Rounder Records titled Box of Ghosts. Brave Combo applies its über-groove sensibility to themes from the classical repertory, reawakening our appreciation for these wonderful melodies which, after all, were the great popular music of their time. With clever invention and gleeful abandon, Brave Combo disarms the classical canon, creating music that will bring joy to the heart of each listener.
Produced by Carl Finch and Brave Combo.
