Doug Webb’s Monumental Performance of El Cerdo Gordo with 150+ Instruments

Wow!   I’m almost speechless after watching this video of saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist Doug Webb’s performance on El Cerdo Gordo by Ladd McIntosh.   Doug plays over 150+ instruments on this video.  Many of which I have never seen before or knew existed.  This is such a monumental undertaking and I can’t even begin to comprehend the number of hours and amount of work that went into creating this music and video.  Check it out below and please show Doug some love by subscribing to his Youtube channel and listening to some of his great albums he has recorded.

Here is a bio about Doug Webb from his website:

    That’s a fantastic video I loved it 😱😍🎷🎼

  2. Absolutely amazing music and video! I had to listen on my headphones to hear the contrabass woodwinds, which are so sonorous and smooth. I frequently have difficulty managing reeds for 2 saxes, I can’t imagine maintaining reeds for so many different instruments. Thank you for sharing Doug Webb’s music.
