Hi Folks,

I studies with Doc back in the 70s. As all might know, he had a routine named after the Subject above. If you got through it mistake free, he took you out for a steak dinner. He was a hilarious genius. I did acquire that dinner, but have lost the exercise over time.

Does anyone by any chance have a copy and would be willing to send it along. I'll pay if so desired.

Thanks much,

Jim

The Steak Routine is #6 in the Brandt 34 Orchestral Etudes book, 𝅘𝅥𝅮 = 60, all with a "pom" attack.

If you could do it without chipping a single note, he said he would buy you the biggest steak in Philadelphia.

In 1978 or maybe 1979 when he assigned me that, he told me he had never had to buy a single steak.

It's a great routine, for sure, and I have had that etude memorized for decades now.

For the benefit for a non-Reinhardt but a curious student, what is a "pom" attack?

It's a very "legit" attack. Not too pointed, not too legato, just a nice, full orchestral style of attack. Big and grandiose . . . grab your thesaurus and chime in.

You misspelled the word "Exercise" in your Subject line.

NO STEAK FOR YOU!!!

Fortunately it did not need to be exorcised.

Is a pom attack like the solo in Pictures at an Exhibition?
