Re: [Harp-L] Harp and Horns...

Ah yes, Sky King and Two Generations - two of my biggest harmonica influences before I really understood harmonica.

Harp and horns is a blast and really does sound great as long as 1. Harmonica is in tune w/itself and rest of band  (including harmonica bending to pitch notes created) 2. Horn players are with the program.

I've had a lot of fun over the years with bands and a few jam sessions in which the horn players (trumpet, sax) were mature and comfortable in creating a solid support musically for what was happening.

Don't work too well when the horn players are cursed with electric guitar player syndrome chromosomes in their genetic make up.

In the 1970s I was in the Darius Brubeck Ensemble which later morphed into Two 
Generations Of Brubeck.  This group featured a "horn section" of tenor sax, bass 
trombone, clarinet and harmonica.

Also in the 70s I toured with Sky King which had Tenor sax and harmonica.


A couple of years ago I saw Rod Piazza do a gig with 3 tenor sax players ! ! !
