“Caballo Viejo,” a moving music from Venezuela, is performed by the US Army Field band


A performance of “Caballo Viejo,” which translates to “Old Horse,” by “The Jazz Ambassadors of the United States Army Field Band” was given in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month.

Jazz standard performances by the ensemble are always outstanding.

A man playing the bongos is seated next to the vocalist as he begins the song on the guiro.

While the band members are all dressed in their own costumes, the vocalist and bongo player are all white.

The brass enters following the tune’s opening bars. Together with a piano, drums, bassist, two trumpets, two trombones, two saxophones, and two trombones.

The melodic line is played next with some extra harmonies for a pleasant touch as the trombones begin the song with a few solos.

The drummer, bongo player, and singer all sing in close Spanish harmonies.

A spontaneous trombone solo is played in between each vocal riff, and the timbales give the song a Hispanic feel.

From Washington, the US Army Field is playing more than 400 performances each year and travels all over the world.

Fort George in Maryland serves as the band’s home base.

The band marches in front of the presidential debate ceremony every 4 years.

It’s been a long time since I’ve been this excited about a project.

To be admitted, the applicants must take and pass a difficult audition.

The group consists of the concert band, soldier’s choir, jazz ambassadors, and six-string soldiers.

The exceptional musicians in this extremely exclusive group show why they were chosen.

They perfectly perform the song with amazing harmonies and solos that will surely get you tapping your feet.
