Something odd about the mouthpiece on that third trumpet, though.

Pretty amazing! I believe she trains by eating bananas sideways.

There are a few videos of Mnozil Brass floating around with Gansch playing his trumpet and flugel at the same time, I think.

In this one she plays three at around 3:07 and look for the balanced trumpet 4:45:

Hehe, that's pretty cool. One of my former teachers was able to play 2 trumpets at the same time, so I knew it was possible but 3...and work it into a song, that's something else.

I've seen that video before and was amazed. Playing trumpet AND banjo at the same time!!

I've watched many of her videos and she plays many instruments very well!

It's a schtick/gimmick that works for her, but for 99.997% of the rest of us, what use does it really have?

It's like circular breathing? Oh, you can do it? Congratulations - good for you. Now apply that to any normal gigging in a meaningful way. Oh, you can't? Didn't think so.

It's fun to watch, but it's not something I'd ever bother myself with learning - I don't play a single horn well enough to worry about it.

of course it's a gimmick. It's entertainment. I thought it was funny to watch. I'm certainly not something I'd like to do.

And this is a different topic, but there are circumstances where circular breathing would come in handy.... especially as I get older!

Circular breathing? I'm 50 and I've gigged thousands of gigs since I played my first ones when I was 17. I've never been compelled to learn to circular breathe because simply put, it's not necessary. Even when Maynard incorporated it as a gimmick in his stage shows, there was always a trade-off on sound and control as he was going through the motions to circular breathe.

There’s not always a trade-off of sound quality with circular breathing. There are folks who do it quite smoothly. I wish I could do it—Not because it’s needed, but because it’s hard to do.
I wish I could do the balancing trumpet act, but I’d probably drop the horn.
I wish I could bounce a golf ball on my wedge, too.
I think it’s fun to do hard things.

I saw a guy in an Army band do that years ago at the Great American Brass Band Festival. It was pretty entertaining.

Circular breathing is very useful if you're an improvisational jazz soloist because it allows you to extend musical thoughts and/or melodic phrasing well past the point at which you would otherwise have to interrupt those thoughts/phrasings with a normal breath.

Clark Terry, Bill Watrous and Don Menza are examples of players who have used circular breathing for these artistic purposes.

Rahsaan Roland Kirk played interesting music on multiple instruments simultaneously while practicing circular breathing. Now that’s impressive.

There are times I watch Carling's videos and realize that I'm watching and listening to a very good and skilled entertainer, and I enjoy them for that.

And there are times I watch Carling's videos and realize that I'm watching and listening to a very good and always entertaining singer/multi-instrumentalist, and I enjoy them for that.

More power to her.
