*NEW* Who Can I Turn To?
Another rainy Sunday afternoon project. Played on the Monette. I may have to re-record this... I'm sure I can play it better! Oh well, see what you think!

An original by my friend Greg Blake recorded in his home
studio. He sent me a copy to see what I could do with it. It is a nice
melody so I decided to play it very simply on Flugelhorn. Played on my now departed Olds Superstar Flugelhorn. Recorded with the dreaded Radio Shack plastic mic and my old version of Cubase VST. I think this is one of the best trumpet sounds that I've been able to capture on my PC.

Ya, ya I know... another ballad. What can I say! A very laid back almost ambient version of the Freddie Hubbard classic tune. Another Sunday afternoon project fiddling around with Cubase SX and Band In a Box. Recorded with the Behringer B2 Pro mic and played on the Monette.

Telemann: Concerto For Trumpet, Orchestra & Two Oboes, In D Major,
Mvmt. III - Vivace
Being a relative newbie at piccolo trumpet, I chose to try recording the 3rd movement of this Telemann concerto. Technically its not too difficult, so I was able to concentrate on my sound and phrasing. This is a great piece to get your feet wet with a picc. This clip is an updated recording. The trumpet sound is better and frankly, so is my playing! Re-recorded with the Behringer B2 Pro mic, Cakewalk Music Creator 4, and the M-Audio AP-192 card. Played on my Getzen Eterna Bb/A 4 valve piccolo trumpet, on the A side.

This was an interesting midi
file I found on the net. I overdubbed several trumpet tracks and had a great afternoon messin' around with this. Played on the Monette. Recorded with the el cheap-o Radio Shack mic and Cubase VST.
The Last Rose of Summer
A short trumpet
quartet I arranged, but with a questionable ending
I added later! You can download a score of this on the downloads page.
