My main instrument is the trumpet, I have classical training but switched to jazz 10 years ago. I play in a big band, and a funk-pop band.

I can play some piano, and find my way around on a guitar. I have also composed some choir music and played with sequencers.

I like typography (including music notation), and music theory.

@WheatWilliams: ha, I recognize this. "- what are you singing? - oh, it's this piece called Requiem. Beautiful."

Are you calling C below staff "middle C"? For me there is low C (below the staff), middle C, high C (two ledger lines above staff), double high C (which I cannot play).

comment Proper way to finger Flugelhorn
But I think the valve flugelhorn rather discourages this technique. The clock being on the right of the valve group, and quite large, your right hand can't get as close to the valves as with a trumpet. Maybe some are tempted to grip the clock tighter than they would a trumpet lead pipe...

comment Proper way to finger Flugelhorn
Agreed with supporting the instrument with the left hand. The hook for the right pinky should be used only for wah-wah or plunger action. I actually practiced a while with my pinky on top of the hook rather than inside, and a champagne cork in my hand. It has the further advantage of lessening the possibility to press the mouthpiece against the lips :)

comment Jazz mouthpiece for flugelhorn?
Oh. I use to say that two players on the same trumpet sound a lot more different than one player on a trumpet or a cornet. I'd rather play the cornet parts on the trumpet than on the flugel (maybe with a somewhat deeper mouthpiece), I think the sound is closer. Especially if you have a small bore flugel (which I believe the Bobby Shew is).

I don't know, does he usually play high on the flugelhorn too? He sure can play high, but he sure can play soft as well...

I tried to expand my answer, I am not sure it helps much though.

comment Jazz mouthpiece for flugelhorn?
I'm sorry, I wouldn't know. I chose a deep mouthpiece at the cost of range, so I have no experience in good flugelhorn mouthpieces for high register.

I am aware that you asked for something to help your range, sorry for my reply that goes against that.

comment Adding French Horn to Trumpet and Flugelhorn?
I play the trumpet and the flugelhorn, and would not say that it qualifies for playing two different instruments. The technique is so much alike. You seem to disagree?

comment Why is a note sometimes a 4th and sometimes an 11th?
He also names in "the jazz theory book" that 3rd above 4th in sus chords appeared in the 60's, and gives the start of "Someday my prince will come" (Miles, 1961) as an example.
