What is hip
I like the "guitar solo" from Foreigner - Urgent, played exceptionally well by the great Junior Walker on saxaphone. It is one of the best solos in a rock song, on my top 10 list of all time solos.
High school band nerds gone wild.
Life of illusion- Joe Walsh! The best use of trumpet since ring of fire (in my books anyway)
the singer may not be great but the horn section ...
Chris White Saxophonist in Dire Straits plays a really good OLD sax , in particular, an extended solo on Romeo and Juliet ( see You tube Dire Straits Live Sydney 1986) - a brilliant musician.
I love horns in music and as such the 70's and 80's were a golden era in pop music because it was unthinkable to not have a rocking sax solo in your songs!
Lately I've been addicted to the tone of the sax parts in this song:
I was thinking exactly of this! Beautiful writing for multiple saxes (or the electronic equivalent). Ian Underwood and Bunk Garner really brought a new and exploratory concept to the use of winds in rock bands.
Peaches en Regalia has been played by high school bands for, what, 40+ years? Only good writing for the instruments will get that many performances.
This tune always takes me back...
Trombone solo.. @2.00
and a slower live version...
and Geno... more horns,,
I love the into to Otir Redding's "Try a Little Tenderness"
And the whole horn section performance on this one is wonderful. Actually, this video is so much fun, just watch the whole thing and enjoy it!
Pretty much anything by Glenn Miller
Zappa’s version of Stairway To Heaven. Lots of piss-taking of course, and then the iconic guitar solo reimagined as a note-perfect tendering by the horn section.
Watch from 5:00 for full effect as Frank gets up and walks to front stage as if to blast us with a killer solo, then puts his guitar down as the horns kick in. (The sound is kinda crappy on that video.)
But in fact the first thing I thought of was this:
Not just a favourite George tune, one of my favourite Beatles songs - and with a great horn section part running through most of the song (& turned up very loud on the 2018 mix!).
The Baker Street sax pieces. Brilliant.
Gotta be the Count Basie band -- probably Kid From Red Bank on the Atomic Mr Basie album. In rock, My Old School by Steely Dan.
