    Little Brown Jug - trumpet trio

    Hi everyone,

    It's not really "jazz" in an improvisational sense, but if you'd like a little interlude you may like to have a peek at my latest little gem

    Glenn Miller's version of this tune was where my arranging interest started as I sat there with the cassette lifting a few lines when I was 13 years old. 30 odd years later I re visited it and added a bit of my own.

    I had a little go at some fun video stuff, and managed to feature three of me! Not as good as the pros, but better than I expected

    Hope you enjoy,

    Rob

    Loved it!
    Great sound and arrangement.
    Cool watching the three of you interact too.

    I posted the video on TalkClassical - I hope that's okay?

    Thanks for that, and yes, very happy for anyone to have a look

    Hi John,

    Thanks for your comments.

    The paradise t-shirt was unrelated to the unfortunate fires first of all, I'm in Australia and I did the clip before all of this.

    Yes, I was young to be listening to Glenn Miller. I still remember when Mum took me to the record store and I picked out A Glenn Miller cassette. She said "you won't like that, it's jazz". I had no idea who he was, or why I bought it, but I couldn't stop listening to it! I wasn't arranging as such back then, but rather sitting there with my trumpet trying to write some of the lines that I heard. I was able to make a trumpet trio from them.

    Being able to swing harder? Hmm, hopefully that was as a result of playing an ensemble rather than improvising. Not sure

    Great being able to drop that you met George Benson! Great memory to keep you going. If you've got the money just buy the guitar for collectors sake!

    Wow John, that is an amazing story. We'd all love one like that to tell!

    As to wanting a smaller instrument to carry on a bike, there was a character locally years back who was know to ride a bike whilst playing banjo! (Might've been a once off instance, but good story )

    Love your enthusiasm,

    Rob

    You were replying to my post in which I said I'd shared your video on to Talk Classical.
    Just thought you'd like to know that three people 'liked' it - we have the same system as Facebook, with a 'like' button.

    So that's three people with very good taste!

    But then this evolves into more parts and I'm thinking this might challenge you to add more.

    What it really makes me think of is seeing the Walt Disney movie "Cinderalla" as a child.
    Cinderella is washing the floor at the bottom of the stairs after everyone else has gone to the ball.
    She starts singing and you see her reflected in one bubble. The bubble divides into two bubbles,
    and you hear harmony, and those bubbles divide and keep dividing until she sounds like a choir.
    The bubbles start popping until she's left alone with the sound of her own voice.

    That doesn't even have to be bubbles, maybe musical notes... yeah!


    Sorry John, took me a while to get round to checking that out. Amazing isn't it! That poor bloke won't have any arm hairs left after rubbing it for the percussion effect aye
