Possilby contributing to why he was dizzy?
Don't forget your abs and diaphragm.
The diaphragm is an involuntary muscle. You cannot control it! Like your heart. You can affect it but not control it.
Dunno, but I read an interview and Dizzy was asked how do you play the high notes (some things never change). He said, "I/You tighten your sph***ter".
There are 17 muscles in the tongue : Don't try to control them when you climb into the stratosphere or adios el DHC !
You beat me to it - that's the answer I was going to give...
all of the muscles ---- including my brain!!!!!!!!
The diaphragm has both voluntary and involuntary control. The cerebral cortex can voluntary override the involuntary control at any time. See the tutorial links below. It is the voluntary overrides that we trumpet players rely on to excel in our playing. If your rely on only the involuntary control, well then Rapier, I guess you are limited to only playing "Trumpet Involuntary", which would be the more quit and subdued than "Trumpet Voluntary".

neural control of breathing
If Dizzy hadn't used his sphincter, would he had been known as "Crappy?"
Thanks for that. However I did not see that article say we can control the diaphragm consciously ? I am not seeking to argue with you Doc, just trying to understand. I've always been taught it is an involuntary muscle that reacts as required.
