Who was the quartet I heard at KC back in 1999? that did a rendition of
Leroy Anderson's "Bugler's Holiday". That has to be one of the most awesome
performances of that tune I've ever heard - it was at an afterglow type
event late one night.
They started off doing a vocal version of the tune (or was it the other way
around) and halfway through whipped out their horns and played the rest of
the way in brass. Just trombone and three trumpets.
In all probability, it was CSD's Freefall. Jim Clark, Darin Drown, Bemo Myers
and Scott Spilker were the members. "Bugler's Holiday" is on their CD and
starts with vocal, going to instrumental about 8 measures in. Freefall disbanded
when Jim and Darin moved to the Denver area. They now sing with Storm Front
and Sound of the Rockies.
