It’s been 45 years since I graduated from High School and it’s always nice to get re-aquainted with some of the guys and gals I attended school with.  One of the guys I was in school with went on to get his Doctorate in Music and is a high rolling teacher at BYU.

As a fellow student I will never forget at a school assembly he was on stage to perform his usual with some sort of instrument.  It seemed to me like he could play them all very well.

This particular time he came on stage with a small drum, a cornet, trombone, bicycle horn, two cymbals, a harmonica and I can’t remember what else.  Each instrument was being held against his body somewhere so that he didn’t have to hold on to it, except the cornet and trombone.  He was quite a site to see.

If I recall correctly he sat on a chair and when the announcer announced him he began to play, one thing at a time, slowly at first and then the rhythm started to pick up.  Before he was done, he was playing all the instruments at the same time and the tune was incredible.  Funny I’m sure, as he was a funny sort of guy.  I assume he still is, because of this video, which was shot somewhere in France (I think).

Ladys and Gentlemen let me introduce Dr. Steve Call on the tuba.

Give it time to load it is worth the wait!
