    Heh, they should install ejection seats for people with cell phones. Of course that probably wouldn't be very good for attendance, but it might be worth it. :twisted:

    Don't most halls have a sign that says NO CELL PHONES by now? And morons who ignore that could at least have the decency to put it on silent/vibrate only mode. Sheeeesh. Also, if grocery stores and schools can do it, concert halls should also be able blanket block the area so no signals get through, like Toots said.

    Play purdy tonight Manny. I will be tuning in for the broadcast. ;-)

    It is considered property theft to jam a cellular signal in America, and therefor is illegal. We have the Communications Act of 1934 which disallows such things in the USA. You could be charged up to $11,000 for a first offense of cell phone jamming.

    Illegal or not, we know that certain institutions do it anyway. I don't know how they get around it, but they do.

    They get around it by building shielded buildings.. You put metal fragments in the walls or paint, or you build the walls several feet thick. They do not use general cell phone jammers.

    I am curious as to what the "normal" rotary rep. is in the USA. Here in Germany they use pistons on Mozart and Beethoven but rotaries on the long blows like Bruckner (Mahler is seldom played!) and Carmina Burana. Wierd.
    Also, is it really possible to sound like Gil on a PRANA?

    I know... I've seen a mix of things from Germany regarding the use of the rotary horns. There's a variety regarding traditions of pistons/rotaries and vibrato/non-vibrato. I've always found that interesting. Up until now, we've used them on classical repertoire and German/Austrian romantic repertoire up to Bruckner. I can't speak for other orchetras but I'll bet it's pretty similar. Look for what Mr. Clean, Mzony and others may say.

    I'm not interested in sounding like Gil. I think I've earned the right to sound like Manny. I loved the way the guy played, don't get me wrong. I grew up listening to Voisin, Vacchiano, Gil, Bernie, and Bud but, as I say, I hope to add something unique to the history of trumpet sounds.

    Amen.
    I rushed home to hear Manny's performance. It was beautiful.
    Music played from the heart was what I heard. We are all musical products of what has gone before us. There is a little Vacchiano, Johnson, Herseth, Voisin, Broiles and many others in each of our musical utterances.
    The Mahler music was expressed with heart-felt fervor by Manny. I don't know which horn he played it on. I don't care which horn he played it on. It was beautiful.

    Yes Wilmer, I agree. Manny sounds like Manny no matter what horn he plays and it is always full of beauty, passion and finesse......and it is HIS unique signature that comes through. I am always inspired. :thumbsup:
