What's that flugel solo where the player plays down the bell end of a bass called?
Phil Green said:Yep, "Love's old sweet Song" is the most famous one I've come across, however it's often Rep that plays the solo.
The flugal solo "Children of Sanchez" SHOULD start with the cornets playing into or over the bass section bells, with us "twiddling like hell". No band seems to do it though :-(
markyboy said:This particular gimmick was first used by Britannia Building Society Band in their various entertainment conntest successes of the late 1980's so I believe. .
markyboy said:At that time Howard Snell did a lot for new entertaining pieces, another one was 'Duet for two cats' which always went down great when performed well.
markyboy said:By the way to the person who I lent the video to I would like it back please. I believe you also have my copy of 'Swedish Nympho Nurses'. If your wife finds out you will be in BIG trouble.
