Fun Fridays – August 28, 2020

Today’s video is “The Bugler’s Holiday” by four members of the Boston Pops. Wow!

My oldest brother is an excellent trumpet player and played this in college when part of the Seattle Pacific University trumpet trio. Back then this was a relatively new song.

Me? I was inspired by my brother and tried to play trumpet in junior high, using one of his old instruments. Let’s just say the talent wasn’t genetic.

This piece is so much fun to hear. I hope it brightens your day.

    As a decades-long trombonist, I never mastered the art/technique of the double-tongue and triple-tongue.

    Think I needed my coffee first! I played flute/piccolo for most of my life, so all those tkta-tkta-tktas are quite familiar. What virtuosity! Steve, did you ever find an instrument that clicked?
