The first version of a valved bugle was sold by Heinrich Stölzel in Berlin in 1828.


The solo is played by Paul Hughes. ==Notable players== Joe Bishop, as a member of the Woody Herman band in 1936, was one of the earliest jazz musicians to use the flugelhorn.


Chet Baker recorded several albums on the instrument in the 1950s and 1960s.


The flugelhorn figured prominently in many of Burt Bacharach's 1960s pop song arrangements.

Chet Baker recorded several albums on the instrument in the 1950s and 1960s.


It is featured in a solo role in Bert Kaempfert's 1962 recording of "That Happy Feeling".


Most jazz flugelhorn players use the instrument as an auxiliary to the trumpet, but in the 1970s Chuck Mangione gave up playing the trumpet and concentrated on the flugelhorn alone, notably on his jazz-pop hit song "Feels So Good".


Mangione, in an interview on ABC during the 1980 Winter Olympics, for which he wrote the theme "Give It All You Got", referred to the flugelhorn as "the right baseball glove". Pop flugelhorn players include Probyn Gregory (Brian Wilson Band), Ronnie Wilson of the Gap Band, Rick Braun, Mic Gillette, Jeff Oster, Zach Condon of the band Beirut, Scott Spillane of the band Neutral Milk Hotel, Terry Kirkman of the band The Association, and Rashawn Ross of the band Dave Matthews Band.


Due to poor intonation these E flugelhorns are mostly replaced by the E trumpet or cornet. The 1996 film Brassed Off features a flugelhorn performance of Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez, Adagio, as a key moment.
