    When your up for a solo, what do you all prefer to play, something old that everyone know's and your familiar with, or something new that not everyone has heard yet?

    Just Curious?!?!?! :)

    Almost always an old one, dictated by the type of group we have. Although I have prepared a Mnozil Brass number for some guest performances I have coming up.

    I like a bit of variety. Gets a bit boring if you keep playing the same solo, I'll be playing my 3rd different solo in a month(ish) on Sunday. I don't mind if it's an old classic or a new solo, they can both provide equally a challenge and a good show if they're played well

    I may have misinterpreted the question. I thought you meant , as in the age of the piece. My answer is not relevant.

    It's when you pump one out after everyone else has stopped :eek:;):)

    It varies depending on the audience. I personally tend to prefer stuff that, well, anything that's not an air varie, but that's just what's appropriate sometimes. My Captain likes to programme euph solos that are either well-known or very relaxing, so the audience has a sort of break from concentrating and can just let it wash over them.

    solo has to suit the audience - irrespective of the age of the piece.

    The day someone writes a proper BBb Bass solo - it'll be a new one.

    Until then - none!
