1980's Wes Baxter Big Band - gRawlin Lead Trumpet

Here is what you can expect from the average MOR Big Band Gig. Wes recently passed away and these tunes were found by his son. Society , conventions, political events etc. I always enjoyed the band because they had 4 trombones, and I love that sound. The bone soloist is Harry Hagan - Andy's brother:)
The Rock and Roll Medley was always the last big tune of the night. I'm playing my Roy Stevens Mouthpiece and my stripped down Bach 43L.

WARNING

You will hear recorded examples of practice that builds chops but sometimes they just sound awful. No Pain-No Gain at least for your ears:)

Do not be alarmed - yes I can play - and you will play too:)

What I am teaching here is how to get maximum results by building from the ground up. Then when you are developing your technique and finesse, and practicing etudes, transposing and the developing a vocabulary of style etc.

YOU will still be building and conditioning your chops and air. Those who build chops through etudes and written exercises only scratch the surface of potential.

                  When you divide practice into 3 elements

                  1. Chop building
                  2. Technical studies: / flexibility / tonguing / tone development etc.
                  3. Repertoire

You will become a well rounded player with great power and endurance.

Remember: CHOP BUILDING- "IT'S NOT HOW IT SOUNDS- IT'S WHAT IT IS DOING"
