I have an idea for a new band setup to try and get a new sound and I need some ideas into how to make it work in terms of songwriting/arranging.
I was thinking about setting up a kind of Jazz/funk/rock band but with horns. Most jazz/rock fusions that have happened have turned out inacessible, but I want to create something that everyone can enjoy whilst keeping in some of the darkness that is often a defining feature of rock music.
The main problem I'm having is Integrating the horns into songs in such a way that it dosen't sound cheesy (like a lot of ska or punkabilly) or that dosen't destroy the rock dound in favour of an all out funk sound.
Any Thoughts?


Just because you're paranoid don't mean they're not after you.

Nope.


Really. I think it might be possible but you would be VERY hard pressed to figure out how. Don't worry if it doesn't work ( I'm not sayin it won't ) We all have musical fantasies.

listen to reel big fish or the urge. those might help, but probably not

I've found that horn and keyboard (especially organ) bits are often interchangeable. Try using the horns like an organ.
