    For recording yourself, get yourself a zoom H2. You'll thank me

    I'll be nice, even although this would be a good place for a flame.

    Any decent trumpet player has the important tools at the tip of their lips. All others make excuses. if your slurs are not as good as your tonguing, I'll bet there are other real MAJOR deficiencies in your playing.

    Jazz has to be one of the most miserable excuses that I have EVER heard.

    I don't own a horse, but I usually bet in favor of the work-horse called "Common Sense".

    Jazz has a big requirement for articulation and that includes as many slurs as with classical music.
