    Tobylou, I try to use range intervals in some of my solos. We have had a classical piece, and a show tune... Here is an example of a blues:

    05 Minor Blues by Doctor Jazz on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free

    That by the way is Kenny Drew Jr. on Keyboards on this recording... son to Kenny Drew who is best known for his keyboard work on Coltrane's "Blue Train" Album

    Page 125 ..................... damn, and all those other pages before I get there. Thanks Mr. Wise. Now I'm retired perhaps I can find more time to dedicate to trumpet - unfortunately, life continues to get in my way .... woe is me.

    Replacing that 9 iron with a hunk of brass with a bell at the flaired end may work toward getting to page 125. OR you can buy a pocket trumpet, and take it out of your golf bag as you walk along the fairway toward the green (or in my case walk toward the ruff).

    Who walks the golf course these days with a bag of golf clubs over their shoulder and simultaneously plays a trumpet or flugel? For sure it ain't a golfer. If it is a trumpeter usurping the caddy's work, that work would sure deplete endurance on trumpet. My caddy drives me around the course while I play _____________ . Protocol on the course ... no unusual sounds allowed! With my back pain I don't play golf now! I like what many others play, but I don't aspire to play like them, I focus on playing like ME, and Bernstein isn't conducting me. I know I still haven't yet got the rhythmic syncopation of America in West Side Story, but it is a personal challenge.

    Pops McLaughlin has his students do Arban pages 125 and 126, except you take the to note up an octave. He has since written that out in his New Arban's book. Great exercises, and this thread is a good reminder I need to get back to doing them...............

    Cat Anderson would have been proud because he said he would play higher than other trumpets in the section to get the attention of the ladies.

    Reading through this resurrected thread I note that depending on the edition, the exercises in Arban's may be on different pages. For example, in my copy, #46 is on page 18, not on page 20 so I have no idea what the referenced exercise on page 125 might be. I ran into the same problem with my coach when he was referencing a page number from his book that did not line up with mine.
