    The Markovics, father and son, have become the byword for Balkan trumpet playing. Father Boban was already a major star with his band, pushing the envelope with forays into different styles outside their comfort zone (and that Roma sound is the heartbeat of Balkan Brass). So, alongside "Sina Nari," there is the traditional "Hava Naguila" (not a great leap to klezmer), or "Obecanje," which ventures into Latin music. All the selections on this best-of compilation focus on the high-energy side of the music, but that's no bad thing, and it's enough to make a listener sweat just from the speed and breakneck precision of it all -- it's not just father and son who are outstanding, it's the whole band. Marko Markovic was just 14 when he joined the lineup in 2002; already accomplished, he has brought new energy and openness to the sound, keeping it fresh and vital. It's a telling statement that one of the two bonus tracks here is a remix (of "Go Marko Go," the son's signature highlight) that swings like the clappers. This band can, and probably will, run and run. ~ Chris Nickson
