    If you could pick one trumpet player past or present and ask for a piece of advise, what would you asked them and why?

    The trumpet player would be Dizzy Gillespie. The question would be "Will you give me free lessons for a really long time?"

    Trumpet Player Pick: Woody Shaw. Question I would ask: Why does my color really matter?

    Why: I would ask him this because, when I lived in NYC I would go to hear his band weekly on Aster Place. One night I musted up enough courage to speak with him to let him know how much I appreciated the freshness of his playing, then asked him if it would be possible to schedule some lessons with him. His reply was, "No, because you are the wrong color."

    By the way, I still respect him very much, he is and always will be one of my favorites, I just am left not knowing why.

    I would interview myself and ask why I spent so much time on Trumpetmaster.

    Everything else needs work on my part, not advice from others.

    Vincent Bach
    I Own an Anton Bach Trumpet Serial number 13..
    It was Made in Grazlitz between 1910 and 1920 the best I can tell from my research.
    I am very puzzled and am asking for input from all of you.
    Common Knowledge:
    Anton Bach made very fine brass horns.
    He had a apprentice or two working under his guidance.
    It was not uncommon for a Apprentice to Take the Last name of his master as his own at some point in his life time.
    Perhaps when the Master passed away.

    My Puzzle:
    My Horn is stamped S/N 13 is a very well made and built horn.Very nice craftsmanship...
    The valve bodies are stamped numbers 109,110,111...
    Vincent Schrotenbach was born in 1890 in Vienna.
    Came to America as a Young man and in 1916 handcrafted mouth pieces
    at his workshop he established.
    was building Trumpets by 1924.

    All my research has turned up...
    his first know trumpet was Serial Number 14
    the Valve bodies were numbered 112,113.114...

    Though I cannot Prove anything more than this...
    It is Either a Extremely Strange Coincidence or
    I am Very Close to making a Missing link in Mr. V. Bach life..
    Any Help? "horndog"

    Could be either he was a racist, no better than your average white racist. Or maybe he wasn't, but realized the danger of a black guy being seen with a younger (I'm guessing) white guy. His music definitely indicated a pretty open out-of-the-box type thinking, so I'll go with the 2nd one.

    BTW, my response to the OP: Maynard, Where can I get what you're smoking?
