the sweet blue devils soloist this year and last.....

Post by brettchief » Mon Aug 02, 2004 8:40 pm

hey all,
Listening to last years finals CD, and this years BD CD..how sick is that trumpet player?lol. Was wondering if anyone knows what note he busts out last year at finals, pretty solidly I might add...it was even better in the encore FYI. This year appears to be the same dude, I'm not sure though...any info would help..

I seem to remember hearing it was a double C, but that seems low.

soloist

Last year it was a double F (i'm pretty sure, but I'm not positive), possibly just one F. And i have last years DVD, so his name may be on there. (Your talking about the solo in "sketches" right?).

And there's another soloist this year with a big note, but yeah, the same guy is back.

FF sounds more like it, insane-crazy high whatever it was/is. Seems higher this year. Better tone too (throughout the solo). Fantastic player(s) in any event.

The guy you are talking about is truly an animal. I was fortunate enough to be part of the recording crew last year, when they did the special 5.1 surround recording for the DVD. BD must have played through 'Sketches' about 5 or 6 times. The soloist didn't miss a single time!

Did you see the finals encore performance last year? Right in the middle of this guy's solo one of the drummers walks up and says something in his ear that made him bust up laughing. However, a few seconds later he regained his composure enough to continue the solo....but now with the drummer at his side...and still nailed that note! I can only imagine what the guy said to him to make him laugh.

my guess to what he said....

Post by brettchief » Tue Aug 10, 2004 3:57 pm

I bet he said "dude, when you belt out that note, just keep playing it until the show is over"
or "dude, you rawk..can I have your autograph?"

The note at the end of Sketches was a double C I believe (checked it with a tuner.) Dunno bout the one in 04, EE maybe?

Last year... on the DVD, it showed him fingering 3rd valve... And i looked around and it's an alternate fingering for FF.

PS - my statement about only 1 F... I was thinking of one C off the staff.

The soloist in question is Scott Dean. he's marched from 2001 till this year 2005 as he will age out this year.

in 2002, he trills a Bb up to a double Bb
in 2003, he plays the double C at the end of his solo in sketches
in 2004, he hits the double C 3 times in the show... 4 times in the tour of champions recording..

but above the fantastic solo playing and high notes.. he's an even better person in general, he is one of the nicest guys i've ever had the chance to meet in my time at BD.

ps.. he likes to play the double C's with 3rd valve.. i don't know why...
