    Boy, these recordings clean up any preconceptions about "feminine playing". This is just plain great trumpet playing. BRAVO!!!!

    The trumpeters lullaby could have used more of what I heard in the soliloquy though. I like that vibrato!

    You should have heard Leon Merian play it. I think he had the best sound ever...

    I think that is a middle school band playing behind her.

    Her tone and phrasing are exemplary, but I do not care for her interpretation of Trumpeter's Lullaby.

    Great stuff! How do I get the horn to sound the way she did in the first piece? That Mexican sound?

    Don't eat too many tacos, or you'll sound like you're playing a duet with a tuba.

    She really captures the style of that first tune - nailed it!
