Woody Herman was born on this day in 1913. Yes, 1913. Shit...
And so does good sax! txrad and I had an interesting conversation while this video was playing:
txrad: I'm not fond of muted trumpet.
konagod: Oh I am. That's why I want you to get a new trumpet so I can go get the toilet plunger.
I just promised txrad I would not post a picture with his face in it, and I don't think this qualifies. I had one picture with a mute in his trumpet but as soon as I clicked away from it I couldn't find it again. I don't think this betrays my promise though, and it's a nice shot of txrad and his beloved instrument which is in dire need of being replaced.
