Visit from the In the Mood Trumpet Section

Posted in Player Updates, Videos with tags , , , , , , on April 2, 2012 by Bob Reeves Brass

The other day we had the pleasure of a visit from another traveling show. The trumpet section (plus a patient trombone and sax player) from the In the Mood show stopped by our shop in between their tour dates for alignments and mouthpiece consultation. The trumpet section consists of Dan Smith (lead), Bob Garrett, and William Moore and they can really light it up!

The In the Mood show is a 1940s music review, presenting authentic arrangements and playing with that 1940s sound that is so familiar to us all. Check out this sample from their 2nd trumpet Bob Garrett’s youtube page. It doesn’t get more 40s than this!

Check out the show if it stops by a town near you!


Shop Visitor – Rick Baptist

We had L.A. trumpet player Rick Baptist come up to the shop the other day to work on a couple of piccolo trumpet mouthpieces.  Rick used the piccolo mouthpieces on a recent movie session and he let us know they did the trick!

One of the best things about being in this business so long (over 40 years now) is that you can see the progress of trumpet players throughout their careers. I remember making Rick’s first piece when he was just starting out in Vegas…I won’t say how many years ago that was…and now he’s one of the most in-demand trumpet players in L.A.  I love working with young trumpet students because they too will be top-call players.
