Dave: Sounds much like today's version of the 1970s band Gryphon. I think it was Steeleye Span they were supporting when I saw Gryphon at the late lamented Free Trade Hall, Manchester. The FTH was the home of the Halle orchestra too, world-class under Sir John Barbirolli. The inner space has now been converted into a hotel. The appalling Peterloo massacre took place nearby in the 19th century.

There's a weirdo folk/rock/psychedelic outfit call Circulus who play crumhorns and other oldie instruments in something that's mostly rock. They're insane but great fun.

"Is the story true that boogie piano originated because there were so many duff notes on bordello pianos so the player would feel for 4 notes that worked with his left hand and stick to them, and use a right-hand style of improvisation in which a missing note would scarcely be noticed?" Noted jazz drummer Pete York told the following story at a concert in Hamburg: The drumming style with brushes, using one to continually caress the snare drum, arose as drummers tried to imitate the sound of old 78 shellac records, not realizing that the sound was due to scratchiness of the record. I was sitting too far back to determine whether his tongue was in his cheek. About 25 years ago, I lived just a few houses up the street from noted boogie-woogie pianist Axel Zwingenberger. "I should also mention the virtuosic vibraphone playing of Gary Burton using four mallets…" I had the pleasure of seeing Pierre Moerlen a couple of times with the Swedish group Tribute. I was accompanied by a friend of mine who is himself a drummer and percussionist and who was blown away by Moerlen (who was on the drum kit most of the time) when playing vibes, marimba etc with 4 mallets, particularly by the fact that as soon as he picked them up, the distance between the members of each pair was already correct. They are difficult to find with a web search engine, since keywords like tribute, sweden and andersson (the surname of 3 of the members, who are actually siblings) turn up mostly ABBA tribute bands. However, I found this on YouTube, split into 4 parts because it is a long piece (one side of a vinyl album---remember those days?). I was actually at this concert; I'll have a look later and see if I can see myself.

If anyone ever played Jazz crumhorn (or Krummhorn) then it would have been Roland Kirk, who played practically every other instrument you can think of (including, to return to the original post, the oboe). But I couldn't find any specific mention in my discography.

I've seen rock crumhorn, played in a '70's band called Gryphon (check them on Wikipedia). They were support act to someone bigger I went to see.

The first I can answer: "Stuff" Smith certainly played viola on at least one old record I've heard, I think it was with Duke Ellington, but may be wrong. Svend Asmussen definitely played viola with Ellington too. But I think your crumhorn has defeated me.
