Carl (“The Carl”) Allison, Sacramento Freelancers 77-83. In addition to being a real showman on the podium as their DM from 80 or 81 to his age out year he was often tasked with all the bari solos in their concert numbers and his lip trills in the upper register during Malaga were simply amazing. Carl later brought his talents to the Kingsmen Alumni Corps in 2007 (we originally tried a trio in concert and it almost worked but my chops were not at his level) then Renegades after that.

Another vote should be cast for BD legend Pooh Bear (RIP) and the gentleman who stood next to him for their bari duet in 81 BD’s Dindie. Pooh Bear also came to KAC in 2007 and helped anchor the bari section. 

However, the baris for SCV this year were phenomenal. I often doubled French Horn parts at SCV so the range wasn’t what blew mind, it was the control and lip trills in the ballad or the 1927 feature; they made it look so easy! I also marveled at how seemingly effortless it was to put air through their horns— I have never played a Yamaha, but dang! 

Quick note: someone correct me if I’m wrong, but was SCV the only corps that DIDN’T use trombones at Finals? I honestly cannot remember. 

Cadets didn't do trombones either, did they?

2015 SCV's Pure Imagination should be on that list.

This is definitely my favorite that I have heard live. I agree 100%
