Watch Bruce Springsteen arrange a song for the entire ESB, plus horns, live and in concert

Nothing phony about this, no matter how great it sounds once they get started.

A request from the crowd must be played, and now requires an arrangement. Not just the key and pacing, but also a relatively complex horn part. Which Bruce achieves by kind of waving his hand in the general direction of the horns and humming a very loose, not entirely recognizable melodic line. Within a minute or two the players have it down. The song begins, everyone gets a solo and when they get to the last line — which does not move immediately to the root chord as you’d expect in this simple 12-bar structure, Bruce sticks four fingers in the air and the entire band lands, as required, on the 4 chord, hangs there for the required beats, then settles back on the root. Boom.
