We are excited for the first day of summer here at the shop. While we love trumpets and here a lot of them, every once in a while we need to enjoy some of the other talented folks out there. Here is one of our favorite renditions of Summertime sung by Ella Fitzgerald.
This week we had some great players swing by the shop to get work done! Jeff Kaye dropped by to get a valve alignment on a beautiful old Selmer Paris Bb, and Bryan Lipps tried some mouthpieces out.
Jeff left us with a copy of his exceptional jazz CD “Just Like Me” that have been enjoying all week. My favorite cut so far is Harvey Headbanger. You can pick up a copy of his CD for yourself on Jeff’s web site at http://www.jeffkayejazz.com.
Bryan is hitting the road with Michael Buble, you can check out the tour schedule here and maybe catch one of his shows!
Thanks for visiting guys!
Here’s a fun video I found of the Canadian Brass with their original trumpet players, Fred Mills and Ronald Romm. The fidelity of the video isn’t great but in the close ups of Ronny you can make out a mouthpiece of his that we cut for sleeves (I also did valve alignments for Fred, Ron, and Chuck). Enjoy!
We’d like to give a hearty welcome to our newest dealer Temby Australia. We are excited to finally have a dealer Down Under to service our many Australian customers (and there are a lot of you!).
They have a good stock of our trumpet, flugelhorn, and piccolo mouthpieces and they also carry our H2Oil valve oil. You can also try our special C2J mouthpiece that gets a flugel-like sound on a standard trumpet.
Temby Australia will be exhibiting at the International Trumpet Guild 2010 Conference in Sydney in July. Contact them or check back here for more up to date ITG Conference information.
