I know that Tom and Ken were touring with Ben Folds Five. And Ben 
Folds Five is on Letterman this wednesday...do you think that Tom and 
Ken will do the horns on that????

Is that true? I just saw them a week ago and they weren't there. There 
was a guy who was with the opening act (Flemming & John)(his name was 
John) who came out and played a 30 second solo on their first song with 
some weird horn. Also strange, during his actual performance, he had a 
trombone that had trumpet keys. Also weird, the guy looked remarkedly 
like Tom, but i know it wasn't him. Somehow I doubt with all that is 
going on they would be hitting the road...

The latter is a valve trombone.  Has the same sound and projection of a
trombone, but the valves allow faster transitions impossible with the
slide.  Of course you lose the ability to slide from one note to the next.
Can you describe the "wierd horn" in a bit more detail?  Size?  Material?
Shape? Type of action (valves, keys, etc).

>list ever try to play SNZ songs???? (what instrument?)

Sure.  I started playing sax on account of SNZ.  True!  First thing I ever
learned was the bari solo from "Put a Lid On It".  I've pretty much played
as many songs as I can find a distinct alto or baritone sax part - "Suits",
"Got my Own Thing Now", "Twilight", "Bad Businessman", the alto solo from
"Hell", the melody part from "Memphis Exorcism".  Back in Cincinnati last
Sept. Ken even invited me to blow a few licks on his horn... I declined -
I'm still pretty bad now and was worse then :-)  I've only been playing sax
since Christmas of '97 but it has been a lot of fun to rediscover music.  I
grew up with music - both parents taught music lessons, dad was a former
symphony clarinetist.  But since high school I've pretty much just been a
listener (and critic).  SNZ changed all that.  I still play trombone (as I
did in high school) but I'm very rusty... most of the effort has been sax -
alto, tenor, bari with emphasis on bari.

I've also played Tom's bone solo from "Fascinating Thing" (ain't hard, just
takes a bit of lip building) and Duke's fabulous trumpet solo from "Got my
Own Thing Now" on alto sax (can't get squat out of a trumpet).

Basically I practice my various exercises, my playalong CD of songs and
blues chord lines for improv (what my teacher is mostly having me work on
now) and then end the session with "Play along with Ken".

Surely we've got a guitarist out there who has given a whirl to "Pallin'
with Al" or "Whing Whang" or "Interlocutor".

BTW, I think Ken's Conn bari is still for sale for $1700.  I passed on
it... maybe someday I'll buy it if it's still around when I have the $$ for
that kind of souveneer.  Most of the CD's were recording using Chris'
brother's old Buescher bari; Ken bought the Conn (70's vintage) for the
tour in late 96 sometime, used it for maybe 6-8 months(?) then they got the
Selmer endorsement and all the new hardware.  I play Selmer alto and tenor
(S80 II and III respecitvely, same as Ken & Tom) and a Yanagisawa B990
baritone which blows the current Selmer S80-II bari into the weeds.  Ken
said it took a bit of adjusting to get used to the Selmer bari, it sounds
like a clarinet in the upper register (true) but a good player can make the
horn sound his own unique sound.  If we get together again I wanted to let
him try my Yanagisawa bari, but he might not want to put it down --- then
they'd lose the Selmer freebies .

Anybody out there tried to chart SNZ tunes?  I can chart the licks I know,
but that's about it.  Full scoring would be cool, but the band isn't going
to do it... need to find someone with a good ear and lots of experience
charting.  In the 20's and 30's guys used to sit in the audience and chart
live performances on the fly, they'd have the sheet music on the stands in
a week!

I'm too dumb to do amination.

So I was in DC the last 2 days. ugh, what a mess. I know what you're
thinking -- No, i'm not in NATO. :P

I saw the Ben Folds Five show at American Univ. (w/BBVD, strangely enough).
Scotty was bowing down to Ben. DAMN STRAIGHT!

Anyway, I was talking to Darren (of BFF) after the show and I brought up
the Zippers (i had to break it to them that i like SNZ more than BFF> but
it's a small margin.) and Darren said "oh they were in DC just yesterday
doing a thing for NPR"....i didn't ask him to elaborate. I don't listen to
NPR but i'm sure someone out there does...I emailed the station but who
knows what i'll get. keep your ears open.

Ryan, I have Andrew on NPR, and so does Dawn. You can trade with her if she
wants to, or i will trade (but i am slow). email one of us.

Oh, and see, Dawn agrees with me. No rude letters to Squirrel Brand. Let
Koby write an inquiry, and then we can shell 'em.

John, of Fleming & John, is an absolute SWEETHEART. I love him to death. i
got to meet him and his lovely fleming friday night.

The horn he plays is called a "flugelhorn" (probably misspelled) which is
just like a tumpet but with a larger bore and a mellower sound. 

Tom and Ken, as far as I know, are not going to go around with BFF for any
of the tour. They might do a random show here or there. Maybe cleveland cuz
i asked them to ;) I highly doubt they will catch up with BFF on Letterman.
They'll most likely do "army" and the guys have it worked out that Rob and
Darren sing the horn parts. it's lovely. Who knows, tho. Maybe they'll
surprise us :)
 
April 28 is my birthday, so maybe my birthday wishes will come true and the
Zippers will play with BFF (actually, they'd all have to be on Conan, not
Letterman for me to officially be F*CKING EXCITED)

;)

Subject: Stuff

Happy birthday on Wednesday, Jessica; that also happens to be my
birthday.

I wrote SBC; I am expecting an answer back late this week, or early next
week.  I just asked them what the status of the lawsuit was, and what
the grounds were.

Flugelhorns are technically more closely related to the cornets; both
have a conical bore, like French Horns and tubas, as opposed to the
cylindrical bore of trumpets and trombones.  Valve trombones tend to be
very stuffy compared to their slide counterparts; they haven't been used
extensively since the early part of this century.  (There are advantages
to being a brass music major, like being able to tell people this
stuff.)

Andy: I have done some transcriptions; last year in high school, we did
a spoof of Hell that I thought up for a pep assembly.  Transcribing
isn't that hard, but it does take a little practice and a good ear.  If
you can pick up on the solos, you have the ear, so just start listening
to different lines and writing them down.  Start with something simple
(like Hell) and work up to the more complex stuff.  Write me personally
if you want to chat about this more.

That's all from this end.

I've transcribed "Stephen Foster", thats about all i've gotten around 
to. One of my teachers bands did a cover of "Hell", and he said that 
the trombone player transcribed that. I only wrote down the first 
part of that. In the old issue of Windplayer (with Jim, tom, Je, and 
Ken) the mag transcribed "flight of the passing fancy" (and put down 
which part was played by alto, bari, and trumpet).

Just in case anybody wanted to know, in the latest issue of Downbeat 
magazine SNZ has a full page add on the back. Well, it is an add for 
selmer/bach horns & SNZ (the SNZ poster off selmers web-page). The 
issue also has a big two and a half page article on New Orleans

Well, Maynard Ferguson is a well known trumpeter. He (I think it was 
him) invented a valve & slide trumpet called a firebird (a trumpet 
with optional slide, like a trombone). He also invented (I think) a 
superbone. Which is something like a firebird...i'm not sure though, 
i'll check. You should check out Maynard's new cd called BRASS 
ATTITUDE. It has a song on there that sounds like its lifted right 
from the opening to "Stephen Foster" (and he uses a Flugelhorn, 
firebird, and superbone...great song!!!!)

Has anybody heard of a band called CUBANISMO????

A superbone is a slide trombone with an additional valve set, and on some

Jimbo does not use a superbone, as they are fairly rare.  (The preceding

It's my birthday too, yeah....

Anyway, happy birthday Jessica.

No reply from SBC yet, but I keep looking in my mailbox (and found packages
from the folks this morning!!)

Out of sheer bordom, I started looking for superbones on the web; the only
place I could find that still makes one is Holton, which is a subsidiary of
Leblanc.  Go to www.gleblanc.com   and poke around
until you find their instrument lists; you need Adobe Acrobat to view the
picture (which is in one of their online catalogs), but it is unlike most

It was so great to see Kenny and Tom on Letterman. I wasn't too keen on 
Tom's new haircut though... I still haven't heard BF5 do "Army" well live 
though. I don't know what it is, but everytime I hear it live it sounds 
flat.

I personally wouldn't mind a collaborative effort between BF5 and The 
Zippers in the future. As I said before, every track on their new album 
that has horns in it sounds amazing. Gotta sleep now; it's way past my 
bedtime...

Hey, thanks for the birthday wishes, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to all those folks
(Like ariel and dawn) whose birthdays went un-noticed :) Yay for us!

Being that today was my birthday, I of course had a pretty shitty day, and
thus slept through most of it (note that it's 4:30 AM here and I am wide
awake) so i missed the Letterman performance. 

Anyone want to send me a tape, huh? huh? I've got shit to trade, yes I do. 

Oh, and the flugelhorn player that's always with BFF is the extremely
talented and cute and charming and snappy dresser John Mark Painter (of
Fleming & John). I just got their new album, and he not only produced and
mixed the damn thing, but he also co-wrote all the songs with the equally
cute Fleming, arranged and directed all the strings (as he did on the new
BFF album) and played all of these instruments:
Guitars, Bass, vocals, percussion, clavinet, Theramin, timpani, chimes,
cello, flugelhorn, balalaika, vibes, piano, double bass, Oud, saz, buhl
buhl, harmonium, porta chord, tabla, trombone, lap steel, xylophone,
dilruba, spacephone, boodhran, accordian, dulcimer, khinjira, bongo

Jeez, can you imagine what the music room at his house must look like? "uh,
I know i've got a timpani in here somewhere. ah yes, here it is, under the
tabla and next to the porta chord"

the album's called "The Way We Are" btw...and Courtney doesn't like
Fleming's voice, but I think the album's pretty cool. She does get a little
screechy, but man, are they cute!

again, happy birthday! send me a tape!

Jess

This is what I wrote to SBC:

Sirs:

	I am writing to inquire about the current state of your lawsuit
against the Squirrel Nut Zippers, artists for the Mammoth Recording Studios
of Carrboro, N.C.  Many rumors have been circulating in musical circles
about the nature and state of the suit, and would like to have the correct
information so that I may clear up any misconceptions which may have
occurred.  I would appreciate any information which you would be willing to
pass along to me.  Thank you.

I sent this out last Thursday, so I hope to hear back by the middle of next
week.  Of course, if they don't reply... hmmm....

pretty sure they were all taken on April 26 or 27 in Hartford, CT. I
was there on the 26th (they were in the same place on the 27th) and
the overhead lighting, stage layout, stage dimensions, and dance floor
