I need to remember to apologize to my neighbours for this one next time I see them – especially the ‘bass drum’ sound. Big Chief by Professor Longhair is a classic New Orleans tune with a very recognizable piano riff that many pianists have tackled. I wanted to give it a shot on trombone, so here it is mashed up with another Professor Longhair tune – Mardi Gras In New Orleans, played on trombone and a few other instruments I had sitting around. Hope you like it! And if you do, consider sharing it.
And I’d love to see you at my show on January 20th at Hermann’s!
