Just to be clear, I was not/am not gunning for anyone's job. I just want us to have a musical sound. When I read a piece of music I try to visualize it's dynamics and then perform them. I'm not real good at this yet but I do try. It just seems to me to be very glaring and obvious. If your the only instrument playing with the wind instruments playing well beneath you; it is very easy to hear even for a less musical ear. I'm not trying to be critical of anyone's playing, trust me I have much work to do on my own. Just want us (The band) to have a good sound; that's all!
