The melody really isn't bad, if it had a better arrangement...
Commodore has never done anything good, ever.

There's actually a contemporary Swedish group, Kullrusk, dedicated to exploring the electric saxophone(s), however their music is more aptly described as instrumental funk / blues-rock than jazz. Might appeal to some of you though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3lZlKt5cgo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeqVThU_rkM

I find it interesting that with the exception of Mr. Brookmeyer himself, the valve trombone has pretty much disappeared after the 50s. It seems like it was quite a trend for a while for trumpeters to double on the instrument for a while, but then it practically disappeared. Does anyone know of any "later" or contemporary valve trombone players?
