    Re: What do you like to play

    I play mainly classical. If I want a break I go for jazz/contemporary. To be honest I would play any kind of piece. I just love music in that sort of way. Playing Arutunian gives me the same thrill as playing different pieces by Ray Charles.

    When I was really young I used to be a massive fan of jazz/contemporary, and I used to hate classical because all the stuff there was too hard (speaking about technical work) and I wasn't up to that kind of standard just yet. It exhausted me too much, and it made my lips raw because I could not at that stage do octave+ lip slurs without really pressing my trumpet to my face.

    Now that I can play pretty much all of the classical pieces I try if I do some work on them, I really enjoy classical music. To me, it just sounds brilliant. Not to say that jazz is in fact any less brilliant, in fact I get a real rush of enthusiasm and musical joy whenever I'm in a performance in a small jazz quartet/quintet, and I still feel real good when I'm playing in the big band. However, these two still do not compare to the feeling I get after I play a solo perfectly in the classical genre - even if this is just a small section of a piece - that's what really makes me proud of my years of trumpet playing.

    I love to play Herbert L. Clarke's cornet solos in the back of his "Characteristic Studies" book.

    I'm a jazzer. I play classical as well in my colleges concert band, but I'm a born & bred jazz player.

    I'm drawn to cool jazz/combo mostly. Players like Chet Baker, Miles Davis, Art Farmer, Roy Hargrove (flugel) and Claudio Roditi (flugel) influenced me and my playing a lot...

    Misty is my favorite. Also, oddly enough, Christmas music is high on my list, especially out of doors in the extreem cold by the Salvation Army kettel. The more bitter the conditions, the better I seem to like it. Hymns and Rubank duets too. Best wishes.

    Re: What do you like to play

    I much prefer to play ballads, with singers is best
    Body & Soul, This is all I ask, Old Folks, You don't know what love is, Masquerade.
    Slow and plaintif so the horn can sing. I try match the mood of the singer. Many times with my very warm sounding Fluel
