Never mind cellos and violins, allow us to introduce your new favourite instrument: the most magnificent of membranophones, otherwise known as the kazoo. Formal concert wear? Full orchestra? Indulgent improvisatory cadenza-style section in the middle? Of course. Composed by Robert Hirsch, this really has all the elements of a full-blown instrumental concerto. Except there are three soloists. And they're all playing kazoos.

The kazoo pops up in recorded music more often than you would imagine. Here are some examples sent in by kazoo fans from all over the world:. Red McKenzie and the Blue Mound City Blowers had a million-selling hit in the 20's with a trio made up of a guy on banjo, one on kazoo, and one on comb and vocals McKenzie went on to make a few cd's worth of recordings which are available just recently. The other pop song is from the "What's New Pussycat? There is a version of the title track that is played solely on kazoos. Check it out, it's pretty cool. Another song that has a very prominant kazoo solo is Little Diane by Dion from As I recall the Kazoo is one of the main instruments on this song, but I haven't been able to locate a digital copy.
