not bad for a high school group. I wish (and this is just my own personal preference... ) that the bone section would use smaller horns. It just kinda sounds muddy to me. I realize some very good bands out there do it and make good with it, but in this case, i would have liked to have heard a brighter sound out of the bones. Again, just my personal preference.

I understand. 3 out of the 4 bones have trigger trombones. But what exactly do u mean by muddy? And is it the entire section or just a certain person?

a muddy sound can come from a few places.
1) note attacks not timed in well throughout the section
2) intonation issues
3) equipment too large for the job
4) sound concept
when I say it sounds muddy, it just means that the sound of the section isn't always clear. Listen to Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band sometime. That's a crystal clear bone section. (First three players all playing Jiggs 2B's, in case you're curious)
I wasn't singling out any one player. I know you think very highly of the lead player, and again, this is just my personal preference. But I believe that in a big band setting, more often than not, as lead bone you want a sound that is going to blend with the lead trumpet player. The other tenor players need to blend with the lead player. Very hard to do with big tubby .547 bore horns. Some very accomplished players have pulled this off (Dave Holland Big Band section comes to mind) but they are more rare. The bone solo I heard was fine, I just think on a smaller horn it would have cut through and had more sing to it. I didn't mean to open a can of worms here. just expressing an opinion.

Well come on, it's a high school band!
When it comes to many high school groups, I don't usually expect much. Not that I have no faith, it's just what experience has taught me.
And that said, they weren't bad.
