9:30 Coffee Break: Hot Brass

Coffee Break
What songs do you want to hear for today's coffee break? (MPR Graphic / Tracy Kompelien)

Earlier this morning, our trivia topic was big bands, a subject selected in honor of Stevie Wonder's touring ensemble. What's more, the trivia theme music is "Spanish Flea" by Herb Alpert — who just so happens to be celebrating his 80th birthday today!

This got us thinking about songs that feature a brass section or a sizzling horn solo.

So for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs that feature some hot brass do you want to hear? Send us your requests.

Songs Played


Fishbone - "Everyday Sunshine"
Otis Redding - "I Can't Turn You Loose"
The Budos Band - "The Sticks"
Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass - "Green Peppers"
Tower of Power - "What is Hip"
The Mighty Mighty Bosstones - "The Impression That I Get"
