    To steal an idea from RoscoeElegant's recent "Your Favorite Piano Part?" thread,

    ...how about a similar horn thread? Any wind or brass: trumpets, trombones, saxes, tubas, sousaphones, French horns, clarinets, euphoniums, pan pipes... whatever toots yer horn.

    I'll post what is PROBABLY my fave...

    Dick Cuthell on flugelhorn, Rico Rodriguez on trombone, and Paul Heskett flute on "Ghost Town" by The Specials

    All those shiny brass parts need constant polishing, no thanks.

    I believe that would be You Can't Always Get What You Want. And I agree.

    The Letter (Boxtops) had some trombone chordal stabs. The Memphis guys thought of this (there were subject of doc recently).

    Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra contains some of the most stirring brass writing I've ever heard, in the first movement.

    In classical music, "horn" is reserved for French horn. In everyday usage. My favorite horn solo horn part in a song is in Shades of Grey, by the Monkees. Without even looking it up, I'll guess that Jack Nitzsche had a hand in the production.

    The cascading trumpet writing in Chase's Get It On gave me goosebumps.

    Not quite the same without Terry Kath and Peter Cetera, but this piece ROCKS!

    The baritone sax in this ain’t too shabby. Edit: Actually it is a bassoon, not a sax. And the caliope part is a piccolo.

    If I was a kid again, I'd learn how to play reeds in the school band, and I'd be a baritone sax player.

    Also I realized last year that the second half of the solo on the Del-Vikings "Come and Go With Me" presaged Albert Ayler's riff on "Thank God For Women." Obviously this is more to do with the instrument and diatonic melody in general than a specific reference, but it was close enough that when I finally made the connection I was a little impressed with my brain.
