Vince DiMartino played lead with us on this Goldfinger clip. Brilliant and energized trumpet work as always! His playing is powerful, mean, and sweet all at the same time! Love to listen. Vince always got us pumped. Great times happened with Vinnie.
Main Theme from The Untouchablesby Ennio Morricone. What a great piece to jump start blood and air flow! Impossible to be bored. Fun stuff. At least in our own minds, the trumpets were untouchable. This one's for us, guys!
Theme from Lonesome Dovewritten by Basil Poledouris. An E flat trumpet would have been a good idea here, but no. C size fits all. Take a few healthy gulps, be ready for frequent high notes, and just go for it.
Copland's Ceremonial Fanfare was written in 1945 for the the 50th anniversary of the CSO. It is less famous than his Fanfare for the Common Man, and sets a more solemn and introspective tone. Whereas the first is noble, brilliant and triumphant, this one is also celebratory and grandiose, but strangely tragic at the same time.
