I wonder what others think is good and band taste when it comes to band arrangements? I’m thinking particularly of pieces that have been jazzed up, e.g. Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor — the version transcribed by Ray Farr from, I think, an already existing rock version. We know that the music of composers who are out of copyright is at the mercy of commercialism. Classic Rock recordings have exploited this field and some TV adverts have appropriated classical music, often detrimentally. A fairly recent example challenging our sense of good taste (in this case of copyright music and very near to home) is a swing arrangement of Eric Ball’s classic march “Torchbearers” by an American and re-titled “Torchswingers”: it’s even been published in the USA! I cringe and am embarrassed when I hear it. I know things like this happen in student pranks and sometimes raise a laugh, but to publish and make generally available the corrupted music of a much-revered composer… We’ve often heard “one man’s meat is another man’s poison”: what do you think?
