    Favorite Horn Bands

    I'm starting a new thread in an effort to get some legs under the WBO forums.

    I'm wanting to know your favorite horn band or song. There are so many, but for me, this was the song that got me loving horns in a band.

    The Ides of March - "Vehicle"
    Originally release in 1970





    What's your favorite horn band or song?

    Please use either a YouTube Link or sound file.

    Thanks
    D

    You'll get no "snicker" here regarding KC mention. Highly influential as they were hot when I was in my developmental stage of early bands.

    And of course Chicago always did and still does have my ear!

    I was about to go "no one mentioned Blood Sweat and Tears? wtf??" then realized that's what "BST" meant. You kids and your acronyms.

    I think you guys pretty much covered it. Tempted to toss in something like the GRP All-Star Band, but that's cheating as it was a temp thing. Some might snicker at the KC mention, which would be a stupid thing to do. No they can't compare to great jazz greats and all that obviously, but there was some great, driving horn work in there.

    Chicago, Kool and The Gang, Earth Wind and Fire, and KC Sunshine Band. Though I'm generally more inclined to synth brass, these stand out.

    Edgar Winters White Trash, especially the live Roadwork album just plain smoked it. They spent many years in New Orleans and knew how to combine Jazz, Blues, Gospel and Rock with Horns. Listen to the tracks Still Alive and Well and Back in the USA with Derringer being backed up by a full horn section and it adds pure power to the sound of a rock/blues band.

    The wah on the guitar mixes with the horn section on this one

    Thanks Phil. So far they are doing quite well.

    And a big thanks to my loyal customers.

    I started on new styles this week. It's addictive.

    Try playing in the sax section (like I did when I played in jazz bands in school...) - you're directly in front of the trombones, with the trumpets just behind them... it can definitely get loud.

    I hope they do well for you!

    In the modern rock/pop era? Earth, Wind and Fire hands down.

    Thanks.

    (Belated. I released 6 new aftermarket 'disks' for Band-in-a-Box and for a couple of weeks things got delightfully busy around here).
Working...
