I prefer threads who give advice about how to torture domestic animals with prog instruments.

Far more educative and satisfying.

Kind of Saltz? Good record.

The use of brass bass goes right back to the beginnings of jazz of course. My favourite contemporary group featuring those hard-funking tuba basslnes is Sons of Kemet.

I like oboe on Popol Vuh - Seligpreisung and Dharana - Between.

It's the same oboist - Robert Eliscu.

Prog is not afraid of any instrument.

I heard that PA was trying to rent a Gort from Steve Hoffman for the weekends but Hoffman charged too much.

I would like it to be more present. It can produce excellent tones that gel with prog rock's sounds.

There's plenty of oboe in folk/renaissance music, a lot of which can be considere prog.

Prog has made it so I don't even know what an oboe is. Is it like a violin? I think maybe.

You know that squeaky squawky thing you occasionally hear between keyboard washes and harmony vocals? That's an oboe.
