    If this is the Tony Horowitz who was in Germany for a long time:
    Tony's World

    He is a very accomplished commercial player with monster tone and range. I had a couple of opportunities to play with him, and it was always a gas. Your collection of musicians jokes will increase with your playing ability if you take lessons from him.

    He is definitely not afraid of high notes and never had trouble getting through any of the gigs that we played. I did not have the impression that he needed to "pace" himself. He had great endurance.

    Yeah, your laugh muscle will get the same workout as the diaphragm, but here is a player that has been there and back. he speaks out of experience!

    Ed, if you see him, say hi from Robin the redhead in Frankfurt

    Consistent daily practice by doing fundamentals is what will get you back into the groove. I would add to the Clarke book, the Arbans exercises from flexibility exercises (do them with your tongue and air, not your face) as well as multiple tonguing exercises. All great builders of technique and chops!

    I picked up the Claude Gordon method, and wow. After studying up on the first few pages (text) before giving it a go and my tone is already starting to center, and I'm back to C above staff and my lips aren't even bleeding anymore.
