Jazz Concert Makes the Cows Come Home (Video)

Jazz Concert Makes the Cows Come Home (Video)

Imagine you are in a bucolic setting where cows wearing bells are enjoying time in the sun and grass under their hoofs. Sounds beautiful, right?

Then think how it would seem if a group of musicians started to serenade the cows with jazz classics…

That’s what happened in Autrans, France when members of The New Hot 5 New Orleans-style Jazz Band came to town.

Staring out with a solo on the tuba in tunes that seem familiar to cows, the band slowly piques the bovine’s interest and they gently meander over to the fence for a front row seat.  Now the trumpet joins in and the melody of As the Saints Go Marching In can be heard.

Add a banjo, clarinet and trombone and the cows are really enjoying the show.  Is it me or are those four-hoofed gals shaking their heads to the sounds?

I guess that expression that “music is the universal language” isn’t so far off!

I have always had a special love for cows. Wonder what they were thinking of all this.

They are totally loving it!!

I think the cows were clearly enjoying the music! (I think someone did a study trying to determine the music animals liked best- not sure of all the ratings, but I think heavy metal was not a favorite!)
