    That took place after Delores and I had already split up. But, it was obviously her idea since she was always asking me to fetch the Reddi-Whip can at bedtime. :shock:

    Yeah, I guess I should've. But, sometimes there's just no way to control a "Lonely Bull." :oops:

    I lean toward a more commercial or pop type of music and playing.

    I have been an Al Hirt fan since back in the mid 1960s - about the same time I became a Herb Alpert fan. I have always liked Al's sound and style.

    I admire Doc's playing, for he is one of the all time greats. But, I prefer Al Hirt.

    I also have been a fan of Rafael Mendez.

    Same here-commercial -Al, Doc, Maynard.

    Most of my early education was from playing along with TJB albums -and Al hirt. Our console stereo played the music a little sharp. Spent 2-3 hours a day with such playing in my formative years. To this day I have to play with the tuning slide out about 1 inch to match aothers. I've played competivtely in HS and college -including studing privately under some fine trumpet teachers (including some noted on the forum), but apparently had developed the sharp sound by then. So, Alpert gets credit for helping become a fair player, but also for my greatest imperfection (or at least the console does).
