Thats really nothing compared to some of the screamers in DCI... Last years Bluecoats show had the G above that double C I believe....
Oh boy... Whereas I might agree, that Maynard clip is not all that good.. but 2 things... (and certainly no offense to the fine folks in DCI)...
This is Maynard Ferguson we're talking about! One of the elites of all time!
2 -? This cat is close to 80. If I'm able to freakin' "walk" when I'm 80 (or "make it" to 80, for that matter)... then I'll be thrilled. This guy is still playing trumpet...better than most folks!!
As they used to say on Hee Haw..... Saaaaaaaaaaa-lute!!
Ha ha ha! Do you realize what type of power/sound MF has been able to generate out of the trumpet? Here, check out Maynard playing up in the triple C range and playing great with a big, fat sound all over the horn:
That's what im trying to get at. DCI is made up of young foke. maynard is 76 years old, and I think he was like 73 or 74 when that clip was taken. What amazing is the he can still nail a double c ( and higher) after all those years.
Look I'll upload a clip of him playing a TRIPLE C at 73 or 74.
That's Carl Fischer soloing, but you can hear maynard it the back.
My ears are bleeding!
No ones disputing Maynards abilities; we all know who he is and what he can still do.....
There is however much more to playing the trumpet then just having fire spewing from the bell.
Also keep in mind unless something has changed from when I was in Drum and Bugle Corps in the early 80's; they play "G" Soprano bugles in DCI!
We played two valve Old "G" Soprano Bugles. One piston that you depressed with your thumb, and one rotary that you depressed with your left index finger.
King I have one of those old bugle's! The two vavle modle too. It's a getzen, and a lot of fun to play.
YA, 100 post's
I had no idea Getzen made a 2 valve "G" Bugle.
Our were Olds I believe....
Congrats on triple digits...
