You’re right, horns were an integral part of The Hag’s sound, although it should be pointed out that said sound sometimes veered more toward jazz (“Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Star,” I’d say) before going back to country (“I Think I’ll Just Stay Here and Drink” had that ripping sax solo at the end, and that tune was c-o-u-n-t-r-y). Forget about Lyle Lovett’s Large Band. I would just like to know why in the world they wouldn’t be considered bluegrass, Corncaster Toby Keith has had a horn section for years in his live shows.
1:27 pm, You said it’s hard to imagine a saxophone in a bluegrass song with it simply being a novelty, but listen to the song “Forty Days” by the Devil Makes Three, its got a sax and it’s not just for novelty or giggles, it adds to the song and makes it more appealing and real. Download 'Teenage Dirtbag' on iTunes, 17 August 2016, 09:00 | Updated: 9 August 2017, 10:14. So when, like Cash, you bring in a trumpet, it’s for color. Trigger, you should listen to and/or write an article about the Dustbowl Revival band. It did make it into my Top 20 though, and I do think it’s more country than some are giving it credit for. I’d make a list of them but I’m afraid who I would forget or overlook.
And who is going to trust Lyle Lovett as some country music authority with that hair?
Primarily because Sturgill is so far ahead of them when it comes to songwriting ability (including lyrically, musically, as a bandleader, and production-wise), and at the end of the day, that is what matters. He was very humble, and you could tell on stage Benjamin Oh, so you think you know it all about country music, don’t you? 9:58 pm, I did not even mention horns in my comment, Marilyn Markham Tired of all the bickering and infighting on the Paycheck crew, Markham boarded Merle’s bus and asked if he could join the band. How do you see ‘country’ artists doing r&b or soul while covering Nirvana or reworking classic country songs into a soul tune and marketing it as country fitting into this mono-genre? Your email address will not be published. It’s interesting to hear horns in bluegrass, not just country. In my view, record companies simply use machines to cut costs and deal with fewer creative egos; while controlling the output of their chosen solo star-of-the-day/week/year. Horns don’t really have any place in country music, do they?
This is however a fruitless debate. Then You Don’t Know Don Markham, Billy Joe Shaver Funeral Arrangements Announced (w/ Streaming), Another Dallas Cowboys Setback: Kane Brown Set for Thanksgiving Show, Album Review – James Ellis and the Jealous Guys “Country Lion”. March 1, 2017 @ albert I met Norm Hamlett 2 weeks ago back stage after Noel & Ben did there set at the Brighton Seminole Reservation and he told me he has been in the Strangers since 1967. I personally have grown to love Western Swing music ala Bob Wills and Asleep at The Wheel. People are gonna try to put him into country music box that he probably doesn’t truly fit, expecially given that he picks like a bluegrass musician a lot. 12:51 pm, “The presence of actual horns on a record doesn’t necessarily make it country, soul, jazz or rock n roll. They use a lot of fiddle and banjo and almost all of their songs are acoustic guitar and stand up bass driven. And yep, there was a horn section. , Therealbobcephus 4:28 pm. So the next time you see a country band with horns and think, what gives? 7:13 am. Since trumpet was my instrument of choice, I’ve always liked the horns. Don was actually driving a tour bus for Johnny Paycheck in 1972 when he pulled the bus up right beside Merle Haggard’s rig at a stop in New Mexico. They’re a bluegrass Band with a trombone and a trumpet and they’re amazing. Thanks for the great music, Don. Because they’re playing Tin Pan Alley music, Ben. The album didn’t even make it into my Top 10 for 2016. March 1, 2017 @ So I’m ok with horns.
I have been open and honest from the very beginning that I do not see “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth” as a very “country” project, and that country fans have a right to be disappointed that Sturgill didn’t make a very country record. As of October 18, 2015, Hamlet continued to tour with Merle Haggard until Haggard’s death in April 2016. Trigger He was 85-years-old.
February 28, 2017 @ I know a lot of your audience here despises anything “mainstream,” but The Hag and all the others I mentioned not only incorporated horns, but did so in a way that one can still hear the vocals very clearly. Markham was a pillar of Bakersfield music even before he joined The Strangers. Thank you for music history lesson. This track has been composed and produced by me. TDM3 may use instruments that are ubiquitous in bluegrass, but their playing style doesn’t really resemble bluegrass all that much. Horns are an integral part of blues music, blues from the late 1800’s heavily influenced country music.
This also marked the debut hit between Kaempfert and his orchestra. Re-uploadig any of my music and videos is not allowed without my explicit permission. It’s the overall stylistic vibe that I think dictates the genre.”. Thanks Trigger for the sad news about Mr. Markham. All around you feels like a doo-op song out of the fifties, and it would be difficult to classify a song like between the lines as country.
Think of Don Markham. But according to the Haggard crew, Merle would insist every time they pulled through Bakersfield to stop and see Don. Was surprised to hear that he was in the band longer than Norm Hamlet.
I doubt this article changes people’s opinions on ASTGE. Hard to imagine. I’m just reporting the news, and Strgill at this point is driving the news cycle via all his success and actions.
4:32 pm. You might like the ragtime era. Any of you ever heard of Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys? That’s ours. Oh, I am so with you on that one! But I come to Country as somewhat of a refugee from the plethora of digital, machine-made, synthesised sounds that completely dominate modern pop music. TwangBob There are horns, and then there are horns. Don’t know about everyone else, but I certainly wouldn’t want to tell Waylon that his view on country music is wrong. Alison Krauss – ” It’s Goodbye And So Long To You ” from her new album Don Markham was one of the few last living links to the Western Swing sound in country music’s origins. They may not make a project country, but they also don’t exclude a project from being considered country either just by their presence. Let’s face it though, Western Swing is only one small facet of country music, and what the hell does “Ameripolitan” mean anyway? February 28, 2017 @ R2D2 Wheatus February 28, 2017 @ 3:44 pm. Trigger
Country music has not cultivated horn culture. Sturgill and Stapleton are symptoms of the same ‘mono-genre’ you had been talking abour for years. The point of this post was to honor Mr. Markham’s contributions to country.
Think I’ll listen to The Way I Am tonight in honor of Mr. Markham. February 28, 2017 @ But like so many of the traditions of country music, horns slowly faded away.
February 28, 2017 @ No sax player then, so I’m guessing he must have had recently retired. Secondarily, his more “crossover” aspects also broaden his audience beyond that of sticking to a more narrow classic country formula (Whitey), or a classic / 90’s country formula (Jinks). Trigger I don’t think it’s only coincidence that Sturgill was so close to Merle near the end, and Sturgill also decided to put horns on his latest album. A few more great examples : But the truth of the matter is horns have been in country music nearly from the beginning. The one that had Joe Maphis and Fiddlin’ Kate in the band. Sax would just sound silly in, say, bluegrass — though I’m sure some wunderkind will show up to prove that it could “work.” But beyond a novelty?
Meanwhile the two folks rising at the moment and could become the next Sturgill and Stapleton are Cody Jinks and Whitey Morgan. J. Burke I appreciate your comments, please let me know what you think!
February 28, 2017 @ Regardless of ones tastes marketing EDM as country is just as shitty as marketing R&B Soul Blues as country. The notion that Don Markham was Merle’s longest-serving Stranger comes from Merle himself. I was watching some Wanda Jackson from the 50’s from that California jamboree. Beautiful Angels Choir Singing From Heaven With Trumpet Sound.Listen to the new song - \"Faith Hope Love\", released by Heavenly Trumpet Music.Track will soon be available on Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, Deezer and Tidal.
For 40 years, Don Markham was the horn player in Merle Haggard’s backing band, The Strangers.
March 2, 2017 @ Kevin Smith I thought Norm Hamlet was the longest serving musician in Merle’s band, the Strangers. Bob Wills, Buck Owens, Don Markham, Johnny Paycheck, Marle Haggard, Sturgill Simpson, The Strangers, Western Swing, Chad Perry blockman Merle obliged, seeing it as an opportunity to put a little bit of that Bob Wills magic behind his music, and a friendship was born. I think Sturgill was a student of Merle’s music, and saw horns as something he could use to enhance the sound, just like Merle did when Markham stepped onto his bus in New Mexico. I remain very positive for the future of non-radio, independent country music, and this will help counter-balance the continued rise of the monogenre.
Trigger And don’t get you started about Sturgill Simpson and his latest record. 11:02 am. February 28, 2017 @
