The Brass Talks
In the early jazz band brass instruments were generally played in a style of frank burlesque. Trumpet and trombones were made to howl and squawk and bray; brass players tended to pride themselves particularly on the faithfulness of their jungle imitations. Reaction to the Dixieland technique was contemporaneous with the advent of larger orchestras. The ' section ' made its first appearance in jazz just as the trumpet and trombone were temporarily under a cloud, so that for some years the saxophone section, with its capacity for purring sweetness, maintained priority. But presently when the reaction had vanished in its turn, it was realised that the prime quality in all jazz playing must be ' attack '. Trumpet and trombone, now duplicated or triplicated into ' sections ', returned to favour. Certainly in the present day orchestra no section exceeds the brass in importance for reasons which may be clearer when you have heard Henry Reed and his orchestra this evening.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
