    Not quite, Manny. Jose M was not present, but Louis L. was. I understand that Jose M. got himself a gig in a major South American orchestra, as did Ed H. (another trumpet player who you and I both knew way back when). Ever hear from either of these guys?

    Ponce,

    Ed had a gig but I don't know if he ever returned stateside. Jose returned more than a bit burned out with family in tow. Haven't heard directly form either one in decades.

    Louis I see every so often on tours to NYC. He has an honest (in other words, non-musical) job now and doesn't really play anymore is what I remember him saying.

    This is driving me nuts... if you're not my former colleague who now resides in L.A. then my brain cells are melting away. I'm racking my brains thinking of who else played at the "Y" in those days.

    Let's see, I started in 5th grade, so I guess I was 9 or 10, so I am 17 in trumpet years

    Sorry, Manny - didn't mean to be so cryptic about it. Let's see if you can figure it out this way: the initials of the 3 trumpeters who performed Bugler's Holiday in the Spring of '73 at the 'Y' are:

    Two of the above are Puerto Rican, and one of the above is from the same "tribe" as your wife.

    While I used to live in L.A. a number of years ago, we were not colleagues there. Who might you have been referring to in this instance?

    49 years on the clock.....

    14 on the trumpet. That is: age 10 to 21...begin a couple of decades break for school/military/learning guitar (a little bit)/marriage/raising kids/finding jobs/more school/raising kids/some of you know what I mean/
    Now that I have a place to play [church band], and a little bit of practice time, I became a "comeback player" about 2 and a half years ago. These message boards are a great place to learn more than I learned, in some ways, in all those initial years. And thanks for your support to Manny and all those others who know what they are talking about!
