Attention Callet collectors! Here is something that you seldom if ever see. The first edition of Trumpet Yoga. It's as rare as Jerome's "Brass Power and Endurance"

Wow it went for quite a lot of money... I've got a copy of that book here in literally perfect condition that was sold to me by someone who clearly doesn't know what they had!

Thanks for sharing this Lee.

....OK, I will out me: I got this book and more.....

this is really a trip into the past: the handsigned dedication in Trumpet Yoga done by Jerome Callet was directed to Clyde Bellin, which was a well known jazz trumpet player in the Pittsburgh area playing with Lew Soloff among others. There were additional sheets of music offered by the seller handwritten by Clyde and Jerome....so this was really worth the money.

Trumpet Yoga is very interesting because at that time focus was put on unfurling the lips and nothing was told about tongue placement at all.

I alway thought about Maynards unfurling of the top lip (einsetzen) and the close relation to Mr. Callet's approach......

...and my theory about Maynard's tonguing all the time was that he was doing it through the teeth as well.

So for me some additional evidence of the closeness of both approaches....one can insist that this could never be because Callet's approach is less air and Maynard's is more air .... but who knows?

I only can tell regarding Lynn Nicholson's rim blowing exercise that I just got melodies and articulation on the rim while using Mr. Callet's approach on the rim. This offers the needed compression on the rim without getting a strained face....

Congratulations on your find!

On the Maynard einsetzen side of things you may find the following observations interesting. When I was working in my double pedal note book I found that by consciously trying to place the mouthpiece on an unfurled setup, like the photographs II or IV in this original yoga book, that the lip-to-lip compression much is greater than a relaxed lip position. However, as LN describes, with the lips unfurled you can't clamp hard enough to stop air flow. This is something opposing to a rolled-in lip approach as in Roy Stevens, where you can easily clamp harder than you can blow.

A Reinhardt-informed friend of mine told me once that, when quizzed about Maynard, Doc would say that he's a type-IIIB who is capable of using a huge amount of lip compression.

I think you'll agree that these two ideas or speculations, would support your hypothesis of a very similar approach to playing.

Just a note: I find that when my lips are in this more 'unfurled' position, when I ascend into the extreme register with volume, I can really feel my 'core' muscles automatically engage to a high degree. If my chops ever feel 'out-of-balance' and I lose this feeling, usually from too much mouthpiece experimentation if I don't have a hard blowing gig coming up, I have 4 different techniques I go to:

1. Lynn's rim buzzing technique.
2. Dave Belknap's Schlossberg routine.
3. Cat Anderson's 20 min 'G' with the teeth closed at a comfortable 'p' volume.
4. Clarke #1 from the middle, out. Slur and tongue each one.

Lately, I usually start my practice day with rim buzzing and go to Dave Belknap's routine. Then to any music I need to practice for any upcoming gigs/recording sessions..Then to jazz..

Jeff Smiley also uses elements of Trumpet Yoga in his teaching.

I have run into a few players who use Callet's Trumpet Yoga technique.. One is a very well known lead player who credits it for adding probably a half-octave to his range. All the best, Lex
