Lonely Boy

Where There's Brass

Where There’s Brass (Photo credit: garryknight)

I cannot play any musical instrument, so I am always impressed by people who can. Lonely boy by Mnozil Brass is very tricky. I hope you enjoy it.

I found this history of the group on Wikipedia.

Mnozil Brass is an Austrian brass septet, founded in 1992. All founding members were graduates of the renowned Vienna College of Music, who met while playing at the Mnozil pub in Vienna’s first inner city district. Music is presented in a typical Austrian humour style, which can be approximately characterized as “jet black” and “here and there” absurd. Elements of slapstick exist next to virtuosic brass playing. Notably Austrian and German schlager songs of the 20th century are often caricatured. Former member Sebastian Fuchsberger was a great talent in imitating, for example, Johannes Heesters and Udo Jürgens. Mnozil Brass is able to convince the audience that playing music is not just serious business. Mnozil plays classical and jazz music using traditional brass instruments and more unusual instruments such as the keyed trumpet and Wagner tuba.
