Do you know what we need? More trombones, that's what!

There's no more uplifting sound than a trombone in a ska or rock band. I've researched this on my stereo over the past few hours and I've had a great evening; there's no doubt in my mind the world would be a better place with more trombones and trombone players.

I think I'll buy some trombone lessons for the boys, surprise them when they come back from camp. I'll play these two songs for them and they'll be so enthusiastic.

This is going to be great!

POSTSCRIPT, September 11th 2015:

The trombonist in that great recording from The Specials, Rico Rodriguez, passed away last week. And although my boys love that song I failed to convince any of them to take up the trombone!

Net result: the world is down a trombonist. Not good...
