OK, GPO fans...there has been a lot of euphonium talk here. To inspire you all [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] here are a couple of live snippets from a chart I did for the Indianapolis Brass Choir in 2001--a medley of Steely Dan tunes called \"Steely Brass\"
You\'re not going to perform that tuba solo from the Schmaggie brother\'s movie \"The Last Polka\" are you?
Anyway, I happen to love the sound of the u---the upho---the---you know! That brass thingy thing that no one writes for!
Lets here dem dar snippets again partner! Awesome!

You have a new fan. Pure genius to combine two classics, Steely Dan and the Euphonium.
You represent us Euphonists (no, Gary I\'m not sure that\'s right either) well.
I\'m not sure why French Horns can\'t swing. Maybe it\'s got something to do with that little mouthpiece or the weird fingering. Maybe it\'s got more to do with the \"French\" part. Hmmm. Given enough rope, I\'m sure you could make a French Horn section really swing. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
Is it musical-narcissism for one to want a GPO-ized sample set of their own horn? [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Sometimes I\'m just too lazy to set up the microphone! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
