Not only trumpets

When I was an eight-year-old, because of my fascination for Louis Armstrong, I began to play the trumpet. But I had another idol and that was Glenn Miller. My plan was to also play the trombone, but I must wait until I was 15 when my arms would be long enough to be able to reach all the positions with the slide.
Now at the age of 45 I have long enough arms and I still want to play the trombone but I am too lazy to start with the slide trombone. So instead I have a new dear friend, an old Conn 6H valve-trombone from 1957, it’s a beauty, with a wonderful fat, bluesy sound and I will be using it a lot in the future.
