Brass Solo

GMG Staff Starter Submissions Leave a Comment

In the video: William Alonzo "Cat" Anderson (September 12, 1916 – April 29, 1981) was an American jazz trumpeter known for his long period as a member of Duke Ellington's orchestra and for his wide range (more than five octaves), especially his playing in the higher registers.

Brass instruments include the Trumpet, Trombone, Tuba, Bugle, and other instruments usually characterized by a long cylindrical or conical metal tube commonly curved two or more times and ending in a flared bell, that produces tones by the vibrations of the player's lips against a usually cup-shaped mouthpiece, and that usually has valves or a slide by which the player may produce all the tones within the instrument's range.

If you play the trumpet, or your band has a brass section, please send a video of you or your band mate doing a brass solo. Backing tracks and live accompanying musicians are fine as long as the focus is on the horns.

Do a brass solo, using instruments like the trumpet, trombone, french horn, tuba, and more. Some backing instruments are fine as long as the main focus is on one brass instrument . . .
