Who SHOULD have won the Jim Ott Award

Recommended Posts

This topic is not really clear.  What is the list in the first post supposed to represent?  

Anyway, two years I'm thinking about off the top of my head:  Star 1990 and Cadets 2015.  Based on brass difficulty and performance level within the context of those difficult shows, they really stand out.

The list is who I would have put, if I were judging brass.

If I were judging brass, it would have sounded differently to me than I have ever heard it in my own actual experience.

Huh?

 

Sorry for starting a thread about individual thoughts on top brass awards and who we all would have awarded based on our own opinions. 

Mods, feel free to close this thread that was meant to be fun.

Quite simple, and tagging off the current Jim Ott thread. I'm curious who everyone thinks SHOULD have won the award. Include who did win the award, if they won it that year, but change to who you would have picked if it's different.

Cool! I have been thinking of doing a show that should have placed higher thread. I am just going to post a handful of years that I am more familiar with and who I thought should get it(some won brass some didn't).... keeping in mind that I was born in the 80s...so most are not live judgements

1975- Scouts

1976-BD

1980- SOA

1985- Cadets

1988- Scouts

1989- PR

1996- PR

2000- Cadets

2001- Cadets

2002- Cavaliers

2003- PR

2004- ...

2005- cadets

2006- PR

2007- PR

2008- PR (hm for Crown)

2009- BD (I fell there was a little too much to tweak with Crown in 09 but their performance was very nice).

2010- ... BD I guess...meh...

2011- PR

2012- Crown

2013- Crown

2014- Crown (hm for SCV). OOTW was one of the most mind blowing shows for brass to me. 

2015- Crown (Cadets book was more difficult but their hornline didn't sell the show musically like Crown)

2016- Crown (HM for SCV)

2017- ... Crown had the best line but I didn't like the book

2018- Bluecoats :inlove: 2018 was the best year for brass live for me...any of the top 4 could have won and had great books and lines.
