I'm driving around and all of a sudden there's a trombone solo on the radio:

Diana Ross, "I'm Coming Out" (solo by Meco Monardo)

I never noticed that one before! What are some other unexpected trombone solos out there, in rock, pop, disco, hip-hop, whatever?

Well, I fell out of my high chair the first time I heard "Beginnings" by Chicago.  It was unexpected back in 1969, for sure.

Thanks!! I've been wondering for years who played that trombone solo!

"Wrong Way", Sublime (Jon Blondell)

Has there been a more widely heard trombone solo in the past 10 years?  I can't think of one...


"You'll Find a Way", Dead Prez (Josh Roseman)

The Dead Prez cd - Let's Get Free - is a very political hard-core rap album, but in the middle of it there is this song that basically consists of a plungered trombone playing over a drum and bass loop with piano accompaniment (plus some horns in the background).  I highly recommend it to the hip-hop fans on this forum - there are a few real gems on that disc, in addition to Josh.

Jimmy Nail-"Ain't No Doubt". When I first heard this song (some fifteen years ago), I haven't been playing trombone at that time,so I didn't pay attention to that solo. Pretty unexpected solo is on the beginning of Jamiroquai's song "Drifting Along" (which is, by the way, reggae song-I didn't expect to hear reggae on Jamiroquai's album, either).

I still start whenever I hear this one on the radio.

You guys wouldn't know, I'm sure. But recently released (locally in Denmark) are a couple of historical rock or rather - as it was then known - beat-music - cd's with Melvis and his Gentlemen. 1966 and '67. Four horns frontline with bone (preceding the Chicago and BS&T by quite some years) on the '66 things, two horns bone & sax on a live recording (March '67) from the old Montmartre in Copenhagen (famed jazz-joint). Everything from Shake, Rattle and Roll to Summertime, Get on the Right Track Baby, an instrumental original, various James Brown and Ray Charles stuff - and bone solos all over the place, played by me. That live recording had never been released before (the company went bankrupt) and was only released because I and another guy from the band had kept the original tapes.
There's a cd out in Japan (recently rereleased) by (Swedish) Bombay/Horn (Lars Beijbom & Maritza Horn) called Subway Baby, some hip mid-70's pop/fusion-songs with a three horn frontline. Songwriters Dilemma features a hot pixie/plunger solo, by myself, of course.
But that cat Melvis (died in the late 90's after a hopeless career) was really before his time, loving the trombone (was a frustrated ex-amateur bone-player before he went into singing rock) and featuring it as the main solo-voice alongside the guitar for the year-and-a-half I was there.
Thought this might interest you.

Todd Rundgren's "Hello It's Me" has a great surprise trombone solo.  No idea who played it, but it's a sweet solo.

I was in Australia a year or so ago and whilst walking around a gallery heard a wonderful trombone solo on a Dee Dee Bridgewater album..Unfortunately after a year travelling I lost the piece of paper I wrote the album name on!!...If anyone has any ideas?.
