    Default A... Strange Performance

    Trust me, it gets weirder than the fact that it's Flight of the Bumblebee arranged for tuba...

    Flight of the Daikaiju Atomic Mutated Bumblebee, distant cousin of Mothra.

    Thumbs up

    This guy on the tuba almost makes it sounds do-able. Marsalis on the cornet, on the other hand, is other-worldly

    I like how the guys in the string section are trying not to laugh when he starts spinning.

    A strange performance indeed. Why did they do it like this?

    Quite amazing virtuosity there. I liked the Japanese bloke's rendition, and also like Mr Marsalis' one (amazing he could squeeze it into 1 minute 5 seconds!). Thanks for posting, guys, this piece brings a smile to my face...

    The Tuba player is to be commended for his virtuosity. I cannot imagine holding the bl**dy thing while spinning and playing. Of course Wynton Marsalis' playing is otherworldly; at home in the either the classical or jazz worlds.

    And from me you should know to expect the Organ. Here is Dr. Carol Williams at the organ of the United States West Point Military Academy Chapel organ performing Flight of the Bumblebee.



    Now if anyone can find it on the Kazoo!

    Certainly strange alright - I'm sure that spinning around didn't help his breath control.

    The Marsalis rendition is great, nice and crisp.
