    @BrotherBACH and @xjb0906 obviously you guys don't get it.
    A thread that begins calling attention to a musical performance surely didn't really mean it. It's all about the gear, man. It's all about the gear.

    It's always about the performance. Trombone Shorty is one of the baddest men walking the planet with brass instruments in hand. His National Anthem is not my favorite but it is good to see someone representing us. I suspect it was much better in person. None of the youtube videos are good quality. I would be proud just to shake his hand.

    Tongue-in-cheek guys. Tongue-in-cheek.

    Noew that's just nasty. At least the front end will stay on the ground at speeds.

    Compare what? Each one is just another rendition, a different personal take on the Anthem.

    I prefer Troy's version. It's all just personal taste.:dontknow:

    Rapa has a great sound.... plays it in a different key, so high F is the top.
    Sandoval does the dubba C... what's not to love about that. Even he was excited!
    I didn't like Hirt's varying of the tempo.... his version must be where Jesse McGuire picked up some of his ornamentations.

    Turtlejimmy,

    I agree that it is about personal taste. I am a huge fan of Trombone Shorty. But, that was not a performance I am fond of. For example, I am a big fan of Al Hirt. I have loved him since I was a wee spat. RCA Victor has put out a series titled "Basic 100". Number 39 of the series features trumpet concertos, and Al Hirt performs Hyden Trumpet concerto. It is an awful rendition. Al Hirt is my trumpet "god" and yet, I can see past that and acknowledge that he performance was underwhelming. Now the other chap who perform Hummel and Molter is Guy Touvron. I never heard of him before but what a sweet surprise he is.

    When I compare Troy to the others, each of which are very different from each other, the others just seemed so much more in their own unique ways.

    oH wait a minute --- TS puffs his cheeks out, and that is bad, so bad, poor techniqe ---can't you all hear how wrong it is????????? ROFL ROFL ROFL
