    Andrae Murchison - Jazz Setting of "Walk with Me"

    Here is some very tasteful jazz euphonium (actually, a marching baritone): "Walk with Me" played by Andrae Murchison. Nice change of pace!

    Ah, that's great -- a lovely soft sound from an instrument mostly played harshly and loud.

    Indeed!

    Thanks for sharing this Dave. I had not come across Andrae Murchison in all of my YouTubing, and I'm glad you brought this up. I really enjoyed listening to his music today. It's been a long time since I played a marching baritone and this made me want to get my hands on one!

    To tell you the truth, if I were to yield to temptation I'd get one myself! I had a good time last year playing one that Adams had on display.

    Here is a photo (this is a marching euphonium, basically an Adams E1 in a different shape).

    Came across this fairly recently posted Andrae Murchison video on YouTube tonight and thought I would give this thread a little bump. Enjoy!

  8. I really appreciate you putting this video up. For the folks thinking of getting a horn, just pay attention to the bell size and what the horn is called. The marching euphonium has a different sound than the horn in the video. So look for marching baritone or flugabone. Beautiful sound.

    Thanks for posting. Andrae rocks that horn. I really enjoyed that. I'm with Dave in his post a while back about possibly yielding to temptation and getting one. I would opt for this horn over the larger marching euphonium. This horn is closer to the flugabone. I am tempted to get one, but not sure which one to get. I know Wessex makes one and an outfit called Lake City Music makes one (I heard a video from a good player playing it, but the intonation sounded a little sketchy). I know the Wessex horn is made in China and I am pretty sure the Lake City one is, too.

    Anyhow, a neat instrument played in this manner. I don't know for sure what I would do with one. First thing would be to hide it from Linda. Who has never said no to me in all the years of getting horns. But am I pressing my luck??!! Dave, you gonna take the leap??

    Edit and more info: I said Lake City Music, actually sold here: https://shop.schmittmusic.com/lake-city-415-flugabone/ and here is a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTvPsUePN5g

    No, not me! At least, not until/unless I get rid of several cubic feet of other horns first!!
