    ...what have you guys been working on today?

    I have not practiced so much today, just my daily routine and a couple of etudes, double tonguing a few minutes and last a little jazz improv.

    Re: Today...

    After starting the day at 7:30 am with an Education meeting at the Dayton Children's Medical Center and ending the day with a 2 hour Faculty Curriculum Committee at the medical school, I returned home to take my 3 dogs to the dog park, ate a dinner cooked by my wife that had an even longer day at work curing mental illness; after which I worked my mental stress out with a 1 hour rehearsal.

    I usually stretch it out another half hour but our quintet is playing a demanding gig tomorrow evening at the Blue Whisp in Cincinnati, so I cut back a bit today. Started out with 5 minutes of long tones then 2 minutes of lip slurs, then launched into our band's song book.

    The work out consisted of reading through Duende (Latin tune written by our sax player); The Edge of the River (Brazilian tune written by Bobby LaVell with the Duke Ellington Orchestra for our band); Emancipation (high energy bebop written by our drummer); En Las Manos De Dios (Afro-Latin island song written by our sax player); 4-Miles (26 bar ballad written by me); Five Loaves, Two Fish (spiritual written by our sax player); Freedom Now (high energy bebop written by our leader - Ends on the G# below double high C - a range builder song); Hailey's Here (bebop ala Lee Morgan written by me ends on the A below double high C another range builder); Hidden Manna (jazz waltz written by our sax player); Hollywood's Song (Charlie Parker type bebop written by me); Jack Russell (Woody Shaw like bebop written by me); Jacktime (High energy Monkish bebop written by our sax player); John Paul (swing weaving in between 4/4 and 3/4 written by our sax player); JTC (Ornette Coleman style bebop written by our drummer); Last Day of December (Dixieland written by me); Left of Center (Advent garde bebop written by our sax player). That brought me up to my hour.

    So if any of you are in the Cincinnati area tomorrow evening, come down to the Blue Whisp and hear some of the songs from this list and judge for yourself if this hour of rehearsing was adequate to prepare me for the show!

    Long tones, articulation, all major scales on 2 octaves (whenever possible) straight, in 3rds, in triplets ,arpeggios; then the polacca of "Variationen in G fur die cromatische trumpette" by Konstantin Kreutzer, the "Romance de Nadir" from Bizet's opera "Les Pecheurs de Perles", which I'm really tempted to use for a first attempt at an arrangement for brass quartet.
