Oh thanks so much Tony!

I was looking on the wrong website.

Thanks so much!

Good song!

And I missed this and went and embedded it later - funny

Back to the Chicago nod,  the horn arrangement on "25 or 6 to 4" is really quite brilliant. Especially the tag at the end.

I agree. Great horn line, and one of the few early Chicago songs I don't like. Never have. Can't put my finger on it, but it irritates me whenever I hear it. Oh well, to  each his own.

I own every album they have put out. Countdown to Ectasy is arguably their best all around album. Steely Dan. 'My Old School'.

The amazing James Brown. 'Papa's Got a Brand New Bag'.

Stevie Wonder. Incomparable. And one of the sickest, most wicked bass lines. Ever. Plus great horns.

'Do I Do'

Huey Lewis & The News. 'Trouble in Paradise'.


I remember this song

The Boss. 'Born To Run'.

The Beatles. 'Penny Lane'. The really high notes are from piccolo trumpet. Also has regular trumpet.




Oh, so you want HORNS, eh?  How about 'bones ... 21 of 'em!

The gentlemen performing above were inspired by a recording made back in 1967 by trombonist Urbie Green and producer Enoch Light, who together created the original "21 Trombones" album.  I put this up rather than a recording of Urbie's because I thought you'd enjoy a live performance.

However, for the sake of reference:

If you find a phatter sound than THAT out there, you let me know!
