Bob Downes & The Alphorn Brothers + Gift CD

“ When Hagen approached me with the idea to compose and play
for his Alphorn Trio, I saw it as quite an interesting challenge
which turned into an exciting experience: In contrast to saxophone
and flute, the hand carved wooden tube without finger buttons or
piston valves can only emit sounds produced by lip vibrations at
the mouthpiece, thus resulting in a limited range of natural tones.
On ‘Dr. Love’ the 4 metres long alphorn served additionally as a
resonance body for the slapped mouthpiece.
‘Pink Elephants’ is a facetious name applied to hallucinations
caused by drunkenness.
‘Tatsunori Hasebe’ is a dedication to a Buddhist monk, a fan of
‘Open Music’ since the early 70s. (Another version on which I sing,
play flute and tenor sax, accompanied by keyboards and bassguitar,
can be heard on my album ‘You’re Funkin’ Good’.) “
