The Bugle - last post & Boogie Woogie 7.11.22

The bugle

The bugle is similar to the early trumpet that we looked at last week as it has no valves. All pitch control (changing the notes higher and lower) is done by the player changing their embouchure (shape of their lips).  


The last post: The mournful solo bugle is played at services throughout the country on Remembrance Sunday. It is a respectful piece of music which ends on a long held note which gradually fades away.


"Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" is a World War II jump blues song written by Don Raye and Hughie Prince which was introduced by The Andrews Sisters. They were a close harmony group. ‘Jump blues’ is an upbeat style of the blues where a small group sings accompanied by horns. The music came before rhythm & blues and rock & roll.
