Check out this Minneapolis-based group called "The Hornheads." This five-person horn section used to back Prince, and now turns out outstanding arrangements by themselves:

These guys are amazing!! Thanks alot for sharing them!! I just ordered two of thier cd's. haha
dang. that is some rollicking good stuff. you had me at prince (i dig the funky purple one), but i really enjoyed what i was hearing when i wandered over to their site from the link you posted. great tip--thanks!
Yeah, I'm particularly fond of the tenor/sop player Kenni Holmen. I don't know if it's on either site, but they do a Stevie Wonder medley that's out of this world.
Wow, these guys are the real deal. Awesome arrangements!

My sentiments, exactly. Virtuosity aside, how to get five people to sound like ten, and without killing them off completely in the process, is a real art. Kudos to the arranger(s)!
