The Trumpeter’s Personality

There are two sides to a trumpeter’s personality:

1. There is the one that lives only to lay waste to the woodwinds
and strings, leaving them lying blue and lifeless along the swath
of destruction that is a trumpeter’s fury.

2. Then ...... there’s the dark side.

Irving R Bush

I've seen that before. Funny.

Actually, and this is a generalization, but I've found the trumpeters sit around in groups talking about high notes while the sax players discuss chord changes.

Ha ha. I never thought of it that way, but that actually happens in family.

My oldest boy graduated on trumpet. Among other topics, him and I indeed mostly discuss the "high range".

When I want to discuss chord-changes, I turn to my youngest son who graduated on woodwinds but did mostly saxophone. In parallel with his college music education, he took lessons for many years with a professional blues sax player.

My main instrument is actually tuba, even though I play trumpet for a variety of situations. Tuba players talk about the best new microbrew.

I love that quote. It was much later in life when I saw it in an advertising for Bush mouthpieces. I think it describes the trumpet player's mind exactly. Another one of Irving Bush's advertising ditties was, "Put your lips on a Bush."

I hang out with the trombones and talk about beer.

As a stereotype, I have also found the lower brass-beer connection true. Later for high notes and chord changes. They know what's really important.
