This show, and this book, are great fun.  I know folks have managed to do
it all on one instrument, but there's a solid case for using 2-3
instruments.

- There are sixteenth-note trills and what-not for the euphonium part,
which wouldn't sound the same approximated on slide. (listen to "Cop Song")
- There's stuff with prominent solotone lines, and if you tried to cut out
tenor, I don't know how you'd make that work.  (listen to "Mr. Cladwell")
- On the other end, there's low cup mute stuff that bottoms out on tenor,
in my experience.
