Synopsis by C. Dwayne Smith
There is a biblical revelation on the sounding of the trumpet, there is the heavenly harmony of Louis Armstrong, and then there is trumpet perfection courtesy of Miles Davis. What may be the absolute tune of trumpeting began with a few modest notes. For those looking to make some smooth sounds, this musical video from Hal Leonard Publishing is the very best place to start. Horn man Michael Harris, best known for his work with Earth, Wind & Fire and jazz legend Count Basie, teaches the viewer all the basics -- from selecting a suitable mouthpiece to proper hand placement and breathing techniques.
