It's funny: I'm sure that many fans of big band music find rock music to be loud and pushy. But I like rock, even very hard rock, and I find big band music to be loud and pushy!
Heck, it doesn't really have to be a very big band. Just a brass band. Like the one David Letterman has. I once was at an event where they had a band like that. They didn't even have any amplification, I think, but man, were they LOUD. I just had to leave.
I was reminded of this because a friend is a fan of it and sent me the song below. I listened to the nice melody and the subtle trumpet playing, and thought this is nice, can't believe I'm saying about a big band piece. ... And then! at 1.15: Noise! All the brass and drums come into play at once to traumatize us into submission.
To those who like it: good for you, and blessings.
Just stumbled on this news bit:
"stroke patient developed a rare neurological condition that leaves him lifted to ecstasy by the sound of brass instruments"
Looks like anything can happen in this world. Read the whole story here.
