The other night I was listening to Bob Dorr on KUNI and he was mentioning that he had done a feature on Horn Bands but he had left this classic off of his list:
I have always liked bands with big horn sections and big jazz bands. I don’t know where I gained this love of jazz or rock bands. It wasn’t from my parents. The only record I remember them playing was by Whoopie John (Whoopie John Wihlfahrt and his band will play). For those of you that may have missed Whoopie John here is a sample:

And, perhaps the greatest horn band song of all time, back when Chicago Transit Authority had brass, not that girly “Color My World” stuff:
I gotta go….get it on, get it on, get it on the morning, girl!
