    I've ordered the book (from overseas, thanks to PayPal) and hopefully it is on it's way "over the pond".

    When Brian's book, "Arnold Jacobs: Song and Wind", arrived, I ordered it and liked it very much. So I asked Brian for an interview (via emial of course since I'm in Norway). He said ok - and you can still read the interview from my trumpet page:

    Then some years later when Kristian Steenstrup wrote a book, I contacted him and he told me to get the english version. I did. Then after reading it, I asked Kristian for an interview. Ok' he said:

    Now, even before I have read this new book, I've asked Louis for an interview
    and he has said OK.

    I'll tell you when I have it up on my webpage. Btw, it will be placed in my Interview section at:

    I am really looking forward to receiving my copy next week. In lieu of this, I pulled out my copy of "The Legacy of a Master" and thought I would read it again. I was lucky enough to attend one of Mr. Jacobs' last master classes at the IWBC in 1993. While there I had he and Susan Slaughter both sign the book. I honestly had forgotten about getting this signed by them. When I opened the cover, it all came back to me and brought a huge smile to my face. Cool, huh?

    I remember that master class lasting about three hours or more and it was filled to the gills with eager ears and eyes. I was so lucky. I soaked up every word like a sponge.

    I'm really looking forward to really getting into this book this summer. I've skimmed through it and what I've read is really excellent, although I think it's going to take me a while to really sit down and apply it to my own playing. But that's what summer is for, right?

    I got my copy yesterday, and it was so much more than I was expecting!!!
    I know that I will be re-reading it for years.

    Welcome again, Michael...

    Just a tip: to use the quoting feature press "quote" and you'll see the entire text of the post you wish to quote from and you can use your mouse (or the appropriate laptop substitution) to highlight and omit or include whatever part of the text you wish to quote. Thus, the quote shows up in a bright white box and your personal addition or response will show up separately if you write after the "[/quote]" at the end. It makes it quicker for others to find your response.

    Have a great time here,

    You mean like this? Thanks for the tip. By the way, how do you know Luis Loubriel? From his time in Minnesota?

    I've just finished an interview with Louis Loubriel about this great book.

    One of the questions I asked, was how the project started:

    The whole interview is here:

    Nice interview, Ole! I received Luis Loubriel's book a short time ago, and your interview motivates me to spend more time reading it.

    This is a worthy addition to your great trumpet site. Thanks for telling us about it.

    I am very much enjoying (and hopefully learning from) this publication. So far I am about 1/3 through it on the initial reading. Excellent material and obviously a "labor of love" for the author.

    One question...I have come across several typos and misprints. Who does the proofing of this type of thing? The initial writer? Someone for the publisher? Not complaining...just curious.
