You need to watch this incredible jazz solo on a soprano trombone

This instrument sounds *quite a bit* like a human scream, and it’s maybe the best thing that’s ever happened to the jazz world.

Wycliffe Gordon is an American jazz trombonist, who has won awards for his incredible brass skills.

This video shows him playing with the Central Washington University Jazz Band at their annual high school jazz festival.

Because he’s a total jazz legend, Wycliffe decided to whip out a soprano trombone for his solo moment – and it sounded like a cross between an angry wasp and a person yelling. 

It’s completely awesome – also, this Facebook comment is correct:
