For the people who don't know why everyone's talking about funerals. At the end of the song chopins funeral march is being played


The version is WAY better than the version I have on vinyl!
I need this on vinyl...NOW!!

My professor always says, "The world isn't fair. If it were fair, Johnny Hodges would be alive and Kenny G. would be dead." That sax solo makes the song for me.


There is no sax solo in this recording (other than the written part of the composition), just Bubber Miley's muted trumpet solo and Tricky Sam Nanton's trombone solo.


which one? it's a written part :)

Rachel Brabin

the trumpet solo with the mute sounds like someone saying "blah blah blah" In a really weird way! Love this, its awesome (: x

Caroline Laurence

Simply brilliant !

Edward G Yeo

I can't wait for my funeral to hear this. This is one of the most important songs of the 20th Century for too many reasons to mention.


Thank you this is the version I was looking for.

Vivian Soza

Bubber Miley on that trumpet is godly. I love the mute technique and the growling technique he uses to change his timbre
