Press Comments on Pluto kein Planet

“The collective experience transported by the Express Brass Band often gives the sensation of a shared ritual which one would hope to find in today’s world community.”

Süddeutsche Zeitung

“Plunge into tradition and swim out a little further – that’s what probably makes the Express Brass Band so attractive.”


“The CD „Pluto Kein Planet“ is meant as a gesture of sympathy towards those who are not adaptable and therefore rejected. Here planet earth can be felt in every nook and cranny: jazz, soul, Afrobeat, Maghreb-sound, Brazil-swing. This album is a journey round the world.”

Bayerischer Rundfunk

“One of the most fascinating contemporary bands.”

“A band that permits all of its instrumentalists the same expressive freedom: this self description sounds rather chaotic – not the tunes on the rarely published recordings oft he Express Brass Band though… Once again these musicians present an exciting musical journey to places where jazz, soul and Afrobeat form a wonderful symbiosis.”

Fuldaer Zeitung

“The Express Brass Band once again successfully reinvented itself. The group’s great enthusiasm and even greater non-conformity combined with a high dose of musicality are responsible for the fact that subculture is still at home in Munich.”
