Dan Hicks - Crazy For Christmas - and Kazoos!

"Those arrangements feature your basic swing jazz band instrumentation (guitar, piano, bass and drums) with one noticeable addition: the kazoo. Hicks chuckles when asked about the inclusion of that populist and often scorned instrument. “I swore once that the kazoo would never be on my bandstand,” he says. “But somehow the two girls doing kazoos makes it.

Now I got the kazoo every now and then with that ‘kazoo duo,’ but hardly ever a kazoo alone. The kazoo is a staple of the jug band so I hear enough of it with that band. I hear enough, period. Who doesn’t? You never hear it and it’s still enough.” Given that pronouncement, can he think of anything particularly positive to recommend the kazoo? He thinks for a moment. “It’s sort of like singing, though more like falsetto for a guy. You can scat on it and get musical ideas going. You can play it like an instrument and take a solo. That’s a plus."

Grand Analog - I Play My Kazoo

Grand Analog is a Canadian collective offering a fresh, live take on hip hop using live music and thoughtful lyrics. In the song "I Play My Kazoo" from the CD Metropolis is Burning, the kazoo is central to the theme of finding meaning in life and struggling to find a place in the world.

The sound is edgy and raw. The passion is real.

And there is some very strong kazoo playing toward to end.

Grand Analog is worth a long listen, and not just for the kazoo playing.

Tyondai Braxton Uses Kazoos

Composer Tyondai Braxton (son of Anthony Braxton) Uses Kazoo In Recordings.

Here is a quote:

And seriously, anything but MIDI. And then the funny thing is, I'll use some of these effects as placeholders for when I record it, and then I'll say to myself, "Well, I'll really use this instrument." Then as time goes on, I'm like, "Well actually, wait, this sounds pretty cool." Hence the kazoos. I was like, "Kazoos, all right, this will be trumpets, okay?" What respectable man would have a kazoo on his record? Not me. And then, well, skip a couple months ahead, and these kazoos sound fucking awesome, I want to keep this, and I'll have horns doing different parts or doubling the kazoos sometimes.
