The Trumpet Player

Chuck was my first real trumpet teacher, back in 1978 1974 or so when I was getting ready to audition for college (I got in). The Trumpet Player from hank bargine on Vimeo. Watch to the end, so you can hear him nail the posthorn solo from Mahler’s Third. Beautiful playing.

Jim Darling CD

I took lessons with Jim for four years while at B-W, and while I never became a great trumpet player I still learned quite a bit. This CD is reminding me of some of what I’d forgotten.
