I’ve just discovered Mnozil Brass. These guys are phenomenal players and are also pretty hilarious. The following video will show you both. The group is named after a pub in which they used to meet while attending the Vienna College of Music. The oddly-shaped trumpet you see in the video still below, held by the group’s founder, Thomas Gansch–I think he’s the chicken in the beginning of the vid–is a horn he developed himself, known as a Gansch horn.
