Love’s “Maybe The People Would Be The Times Or Between Clark And Hilldale“
Yup. my first thought exactly
Logical Song - Supertramp
Near as I can tell (from this distance) "Big Band" never died in Australia. Rather than having a clear line between jazz age beatniks and rock 'n' roll hippies as per NYC... it all kinda ran together.
Near as I can tell. From where I sit.
The horns carry it the same way the drums carry Zeppelin, "Rock 'n' roll".
If I could choose any producer alive or dead I'd go with Herb Alpert and Henry Mancini.
Hopefully I'd end up with something like this:
This is a very recent one, killer groove driven by the horn section.
Good/non-embarrassing/undorky horns (post-early 60’s) in rock songs are so rare it’s almost like talking about the rarely-seen giant squid.
We know they exist but they come around so infrequently that they barely register.
Anything by the Cherry Poppin Daddies. They're from my town. I used to go see them all the time before they got kind of big in the late 90's.
Lucero Women and Work album sound is mostly defined by the horn section.
They actually made the addition with their Overton Park album before. Some of their fans didn’t like it, but me as a big fan of Memphis Soul loved it.
Not a section but one guy on a sax, being Dick Parry on several of Pink Floyd songs
Blood Sweat & Tears' first album was one of the first LPs I owned, I'd nominate Hidey Ho (or however you spell it)
also these days Tower of Power Live "You're Still a Young Man"
I was actually wondering whether I really considered saxophones to be horns since they're actually woodwinds (coming from the bias of a brass backround, myself). Looked it up, found out that in the context of a "horn section" they were. Makes enough sense, in context.
I'm willing to convey honorary "horn section" status to the bagpipes, for the purposes of that song. Rock on!
Got to get you into my life
Since we all loosey goosey with the 'rock' term: The Budos Band!
A wonderful tune but not really a rock song, just played on R&R radio stations
Not sure if it counts as rock but it's hard to imagine Ring of Fire without the iconic Mariachi horns . . .
