    Hey Everybody-
    Thought this is a good resource that folks might find useful, or at least interesting. I've been doing in-depth interviews w/ trumpeters (and others music professionals) about music practice in preparation for my next book (on Practice). Below are links to a blog where you can hear the interviews with these great trumpeters, as well as vids, and lots of other relevant links.

    cheers,
    Jon

    Excellent, excellent. Thanks for your work!

    Loved the Avishai Cohen interview; I agree that he is probably the most interesting jazz trumpet player currently around.

    You're welcome! Is it work if it's fun? Yeah, I love what Avishai has to say with his music. When we spoke he was with a singer-songwriter and used a lot of electronics. Made me think of that when I saw this SF Jazz Collective version featuring him on the Stevie Wonder tune "Do I Do." Just a tiny bit of "wah." I thought it sounded cool.
