Happy Easter to all of you celebrating!

After a successful morning playing an Easter service at church, I’m looking forward to our regular Sunday show with Arturo O’Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, at Birdland in NYC. 9pm & 11pm sets. Come hang!

Literally Jaw-Dropping! | “J for Jaw” | Trumpet A-Z, Episode 10

Do you struggle with bringing your lip slurs up to speed, or with changing registers easily and smoothly? Do you have a lot of motion in your embouchure, when you work on these things? The chances are that you’re dropping your jaw as you adjust the tongue arch. In this episode of #TrumpetAtoZ, “J for Jaw”, Bryan Davis shares an exercise he used to disconnect the motion of his tongue and jaw, to get his own flexibility under control.
