Unusual Jazz Instruments

Became attracted to the harp because of the Marx Brothers films, and of course living in Wales the music of it was never far away. The Welsh harpis of course smaller, and therefore quiter.

I enjoyed the clip John. I felt it worked

Minamahal (I Am Loving You)

by: Charmaine Clamor

Minamahal, minamahal kita (I am loving you)
Pagsinta ay 'di mag-iiba (my feelings will not change)
Hindi mo ba nadarama sinta (Can?t you feel it my darling?)
Bawa't kilos ko'y pangarap ka (My every action hopes for you)
Minamahal, minamahal kita (I am loving you)
At nasa iyo ang tanging pag-asa (in you lies my only hope)
Asahan mong dalangin ko, tuwina (Know that it is always in my prayers)
Minamahal, minamahal kita (I am loving, loving you)

The Sax was a first for me, not too unpleasant somewhat similar to an old Buffalo passing wind, but the Bassoon falls into the category of instruments that for me are not suitable for jazz.

An electronic wind instrument what will you come up with next ?

Never heard of it before, so Googled it. Fascinating idea. Rather enjoyed the sound of it as well

Great Idea.

Where next we wonder. What with all them 'Wind Turbines' they are threatening to engulf the landscapes with, maybe I will sneak out some midnight and see if one is playable. Need a special mouthpiece for it though (and a crash helmet in case I get clattered on the nut with one of them big propellers!) If some bible black night you all hear a ghostly eerie whirring 'DIN' don't worry none, it will be me, out on the moors improvising on a 'Wind Turbine' on the theme of Woody Herman's 'Blowing Up A Storm!'

Oh I see well as I have said before I am a pure acoustic devotee with the exception of the Vibraphone which receives only a wee bit of assistance.
