PitchBlak Brass Band – “Tuba Fresh” Chanell Crichlow

Chanell Crichlow (aka Tuba Fresh), tuba player and entrepreneur, is the founder of PitchBlak Brass Band, who just released their first album, You See Us, funded entirely by Kickstarter. We talk about the range of expression, instrumentation, and dynamics of their new album, what it means to be a “New York” brass band, and how it looks when your musicians are always on stage switching from rapping to playing trombone. If you’d like to know more about Chanell, read this interview with her in dapperQ, where we talk about gender, fashion, and race in the classical music world.

Original air date: Monday September 16th, 2013 on Nuts and Bolts Music on KVRX in Austin.
