Jim Manley and I talk trumpet!
This Month I was featured on the Trumpet Dynamics Podcast http://trumpetdynamics.com/ hosted by James Newcomb along with one of my friends and fantastic trumpet player Jim Manley from St. Louis. James talked to me about Chop problems I have encountered over the past 20 years on the road and Jim let loose talking all things trumpet from chop issues to using less air to play with a bigger sound and more range. I love talking to Jim about trumpet playing. He is so passionate about it and has such great info. He always inspires me to play better and I always pick something up from him that helps me learn to play this crazy instrument a little bit better. I hope you enjoy the podcast. Here are a few photos I found from a trip to St. Louis. Karl Hunter and I went Jim’s Gig and sat in with him and our friend Luppy on piano.
