Jazz bassoon

Post by eloisec » Tue Mar 06, 2007 3:50 pm

I'll be performing the Jazz Piece for Bassoon and Orchestra by Henry Mancini later this year (prob. November) at Dulwich College with the Southwark Concert Band.

So as well as a bit of shameless self-promotion I thought some of you might be interested to hear the bassoon in a jazz setting. This is still a very new path for the bassoon but is increasing in momentum (particularly in America).

The link to listen to jazz bassoon is

I'd better start practicing ... :wink:

no, you've just heard jazz bassoon :wink:

it's good to leave the world of classical music sometimes, although I have to say the complex nature of the bsn does make playing jazz incredibly difficult. I guess the nearest sound would be a bari sax ... but better obviously :lol:
