When you think of jazz the vision is of saxophones, trumpets, crazy drum solos, guitarists moving all over the fretboard, hot piano, funky or walking bass players, etc. You don’t envision french horns.
This episode will change all that! 🙂 Some really amazing playing with solos by the likes of Tom Varner, Vincent Chancey, Giovanni Hoffer, John Graas, Willie Ruff, David Amram, Mark Taylor, and maybe the most astounding: John Clark. You’ll also hear the roles that Miles Davis, Claude Thornhill, and Gunther Schuller played in turning the french horn into a jazz instrument.
