Concertos for the Common Man
This is an older album; a collection of fine brass duets. I (arguably) learned how to play trumpet one day in highschool with Aaron (who can actually play) and started sight reading some pieces. I'm sure you'll be able to pick out my clear, shining tone beneath his screechy lead parts. All of these were done in one take. I must say I'm rather proud of having learned the fingerings so quickly. Even though it sounds discordant at times, most of the errors had to do with my lips and not my fingers.
(How do you control this @#$%&* thing!?).
