    What do you mean "solo card"? If you mean first time you played a solo then I was 14. 8th grade year Spring Festival.

    Have played numerous solos, never been given a card (have been given some very nice cheques though - much more useful in the long term :D )

    So, for those of us who don't do da jazz stuff, this means we are still cardless?

    I can sit in with any brass band and play the solos there, if that helps

    I sit in with great players all the time and (inadvertantly) end up stealing the show cause my playing is so tight. Guess that comes from meeting Miles in person in 1990 and learning almost every solo he ever played along with studying Arbams for 10 years.

    Now my big thing is extending my endurance past 5 hours a night. Because the way I see it, theres no point in knowing your theorie and horn inside out and having your lip die when the fun just gets started!
