Music needs to bring back horn sections.

I think horns have always been more jazz, R&B, and funk. You can still find them in jazz, not so sure about R&B. Corinne Bailey Rae seems to use horns on occasion.

"Mainstream" groups strongly influenced by jazz sometimes incorporate horns.

I meant to add some musicians influenced by Latin music or funk may also use horns. I'm trying to think of a good modern example, but I'm blanking.

These days, I am all about the MarchFourth Marching Band.
I saw them at the Voodoo Experience in New Orleans and they are just incredible. Plenty of horns (12!) and it is a huge band with a flair for performance.
Some of their compositions have a funk sound, but there is some Latin influence as well. Their album Rise Up as a New Orleans influence.
They aren't exactly like a high school marching band.
They've taken this thing to another level.
If you ever get a chance to see them, do!

Thomas R.
I am a Squirrel Nut Zippers fan from way back and there is an old thread in this forum about them.
MarchFourth does not have that retro sound at all, but somehow they still remind me of them--I guess they are sort of extended family/third cousins or something.

That was interesting. Someone should use their music on a movie soundtrack.

Here's a good one from the late 60's. A lot of marching bands seem to play this one.

George Thorogood uses the sax in some of his music. I seem to remember Earth, Wind, and Fire were known for their horns, as well as early Chicago.
