No warm up, all day Strauss and jazz gig at night


Didn’t get to work on time. Had about two notes played before I had to start rehearsal…opening Don Quixote fanfare didn’t feel good. Have to center the arpeggios. Feel swimmy.

No way will it feel 100% right away but how fast can I get it feeling centered? Luckily my chops have been feeling good recently and I can make it work in the band.

I need to take tomorrow morning and center things on my C trumpet. Check a few things against your old one…

On this new trumpet the upper f#’s and G’s feel weird. They were fine on the old one. How do they compare? This trumpet does get a nice juicy response if I am in good shape.
