Captain Beefheart had a lot of Horn Chic

19 Dec

When I came home in a great mood from my Burnt Sugar gig last night, I was sad to learn on facebook that Don Van Vliet had left this mortal coil. I always liked the horns on the intro to “You Know You’re A Man” by Captain Beefheart from his Shiny Beast album. They come in at the 7:23 minute mark on this video. . I believe that’s Bruce Lambourne Fowler on trombone and Don Van Vliet himself on soprano sax.
