Snooky Young Video

Posted in Player Updates, Videos with tags , , , on May 16, 2011 by Bob Reeves Brass

We are very sad to hear of the passing of trumpet player Snooky Young. It is an understatement to say that Snooky set the standard for lead trumpet players. We are fortunate to have been able to hear him perform many times through the years. Bob started doing work for Snooky back in the 70’s, and has done several alignments for him through the years.

Here is a video of Snooky that we came across that really shows his sensitive side:

Happy Autumn (with Sarah Vaughan and Wynton Marsalis)!

Posted in Videos with tags , , on September 24, 2010 by Bob Reeves Brass

Happy Fall (or Autumn)! We didn’t get much of a Summer here in Valencia, CA, with most of the days being cloudy and temperatures in the 70’s.

Besides making mouthpieces and accessories, we have been working on some new exciting projects here at the shop. Some of these projects are still super-secret, but I can tell you that one of them is our long-awaited line of symphonic mouthpieces. Keep checking back here regularly for the latest updates.

If you are not in the Autumn mood yet, maybe this video of Sarah Vaughan and Wynton Marsalis playing Autumn Leaves will get you in the right spot! Enjoy!

Charley Davis Trumpet Video – “Something”

Posted in Player Updates, Trumpets and Equipment, Videos with tags , , , on September 10, 2010 by Bob Reeves Brass

We’ve been swamped here the last few weeks and haven’t been able to update the blog as much as we’d like. We just had Charley drop by the other day for a valve alignment and though it would be great to share this video of him back in his Buddy Rich days playing the tune “Something”. I can’t think of a better way to spend the weekend than listening to a beautiful song played by a wonderful trumpet player. Enjoy!

Disneyland All-American College Band Reunion

Posted in Player Updates, Videos with tags , , , , on August 4, 2010 by Bob Reeves Brass

We had the pleasure of having Tim, Michael, and Alphonso – most of the trumpet section of the Disneyland All-American College Band – visit us last month trying out mouthpieces. They are an incredible bunch of talented college players from across the country who come out for the summer to play in the park (and get paid too!). They ended up with some more efficient mouthpieces to make their jobs easier at the park (5 shows a day), and some cylinder reinforcers for their Xeno horns.

Then a few weeks later we had Cade visit us from South Dakota for a valve alignment, only to find out that he was visiting for the Disney band’s reunion concert. Although we couldn’t make it to the park to see the show, we did find some videos online to share with you of the band. It looks like they had a lot of fun…and word has it that on “Bubbles was a Cheerleader” they had trumpet players who only played the ‘doits’.

Enjoy –

Canadian Brass Video

Posted in Videos with tags , , , , , , on June 9, 2010 by Bob Reeves Brass

Here’s a fun video I found of the Canadian Brass with their original trumpet players, Fred Mills and Ronald Romm.  The fidelity of the video isn’t great but in the close ups of Ronny you can make out a mouthpiece of his that we cut for sleeves (I also did valve alignments for Fred, Ron, and Chuck). Enjoy!
