Paragon Brass Ensemble
- I saw the Paragon Brass Ensemble play some nice arrangements of ragtime,
souza march jazz-age music yesterday for the 4th-of-July celebrations at
Bayou Bend in Houston. They were excellent. Their pieces are 2
trumpets, french horn, tuba and trombone.
I include this non-jazzy performance by them as it is excellent and
stronger than the "Ain't Misebavin'" they have on Youtube, which is not
as strong as what I saw them do yesterday, outside on a hot day no less.
