Trumpets are precision made. During the pre-shipment inspection, the valves are oiled and checked for correct operation, and all of the tuning slides are greased and checked for free movement. To enable the instrument to be played, only the mouthpiece needs to be fitted. Fit the mouthpiece carefully by easing it into the mouthpiece tube until a firm, airtight connection has been achieved. Warning: Do not force or knock the mouthpiece into the mouthpiece tube. Doing so will cause damage not covered by the warranty and is likely to require specialist equipment and trained personnel to remove it safely. With the mouthpiece correctly fitted, the instrument is now ready to play. For your convenience, a cleaning cloth, valve oil and shoulder strap are included. Four tuning slides are also incorporated into your trumpet. These enable the fine tuning and intonation of the instrument to be adjusted. For guidance on their use, we recommend that you seek advice from your music teacher, instrument teacher, technician or local music store. There are many tutor books, videos and CD ROM tutors available from musical instrument or sheet music stores to help you teach yourself to play the trumpet. We would also recommend you take lessons with a qualified trumpet teacher.
It is important to disassemble and thoroughly clean the instrument after playing, and especially prior to placing it in its case for storage between playing sessions. Follow the routine below to ensure that the instrument is kept in peak condition:
Remove any dirt, perspiration and finger marks from the surface of the instrument by the gentle use of a cleaning cloth (provided).
The tuning slides should be carefully removed and the inside of the instrument and slides cleaned and dried with an appropriate cleaning brush/cloth. Replace the slides with care in the correct positions.
The valve pistons, located within the valve casings, should occasionally also be removed, checked and if necessary, cleaned and thoroughly dried. The casings should also be cleaned and the valves re-oiled.
Valve pistons and casings are NOT interchangeable. Always remove and replace one at a time.
To remove a valve, unscrew the valve cap at the top of the valve casing. Carefully remove the valve piston, clean and dry with a lint free cloth. Re-oil the valve piston and replace this into the valve casing ensuring that the valve piston guide mates with the detent in the valve casing. To align the valve piston, depress the valve button fully, rotate the valve button clockwise/anti clockwise until the piston clicks into place. Release the valve button and replace the valve cap, screwing it back into position. Do not over tighten the valve cap.
Regular oiling of the valve pistons is fundamental to the smooth operation, maintenance and playing of the instrument.
Valve oil (provided) should be applied (sparingly) to each valve in turn. To apply valve oil, follow the procedure for cleaning and maintenance of the valve piston as described above. It is necessary only to expose the barrel of the valve piston and sparingly apply sufficient valve oil to ensure adequate lubrication.
Valve oil should also be used (sparingly) on the tuning slides and water key(s) hinge.
Water accumulates within the instrument during playing. To prolong the life and playing action of your instrument, this water must be regularly expelled. To do this, angle the bell of the instrument towards the ground, hold open the water keys and blow through the instrument to expel excess water.
Occasionally, water will remain in the instrument, and can be expelled, during routine maintenance, by carefully removing the tuning slides, and draining excess residual moisture.

Franz Koglmann, who likes to cross borders, pursues a dialogue between styles. Using this dialogue, which he consciously allows to include disruptions, Koglmann elegantly and expertly weaves his way along a path that avoids both the classical jazz clichיs and the hermetics of e-music. His cool way of bridging worlds is often referred to as the "3rd Vienna School" by critics.
On Don't Play, Just Be Koglmann collaborates with one of the world's leading New Music orchestras, the Klangforum Wien, conducted by Emilio Pomבrico, and with outstanding jazz soloists. He impressively succeeds in harnessing the traditions of classical modernism and jazz for his very own world of sound.
The four movements of the suite Don't Play, Just Be are a dialogue between a jazz quartet the legendary British tenor saxophonist and clarinetist Tony Coe, guitar virtuoso James Emery from New York, Franz Koglmann on the flugelhorn and Klangforum bassist Uli Fussenegger and composed and written processes of European e-music. The dialogue is enhanced by references to a text by Jean Cocteau and the films of Jacques Rivette, as well as hints of French film scores brought in by the accordion and violin.
The second section of the CD, entitled Spהte Liebe (Late Love), features four songs based on texts by Franz Schuh. Koglmann's music gives a gentle ironic twist to the poems, which are moving in their existential immediacy and are interpreted with great subtlety and virtuosity by the outstanding soprano Ursula Fiedler.
The final track on this CD, which is so exemplary of Koglmann's work, is a piece typical of his Monoblue Quartet. Conceived as a signature tune for "Reporters without Borders", it allows Koglmann and his exceptional musicians to highlight once again the essence of Koglmann's music on this CD: a melodious and delicate, smiling melancholy.
Koglmann divides this set into two theme pieces: “Don’t Play, Just Be (for quartet and chamber orchestra)” and “Spate Liebe (4 Songs based on poems by Franz Schuh for soprano, quartet and chamber orchestra).” Many of these interleaving works feature the leader’s clement and strikingly lyrical flugelhorn work amid swinging grooves and a series of mood-altering passages.
"Once again, the brilliant Austrian composer/flugelhornist Franz Koglmann derives inspiration and motivation from literary and cinematic works. This extravaganza, features a full-blown chamber orchestra to augment the work of famed jazz soloists, James Emery (guitar), Tony Coe (woodwinds) and others. Here, Koglmann delves into the Third Stream with this hybrid symphonic/modern jazz/big band program.
The artists periodically disseminate a cool, sleek, West Coast (jazz) vibe to coincide with accordionist Krassimir Sterev’s exquisitely rendered accents. All that and much more! Koglmann’s latest brainchild looms as one of his most audacious efforts to date. Recommended."
REVIEW It seems so simple but so few labels do it. Team together five strong bop-oriented players, all of whom have developed original voices on their instruments while remaining tied to the jazz tradition. Put them in a relaxed environment with a good piano, allow them to pick out a list of standards to jam and then have someone have someone count off the time. It sounds too easy to be so successful yet so much of the best jazz happens this way.The key is to match together musicians who, although compatible, have not necessarily played together with each other in this setting all that often. All five jazzmen on this set have long been underrated and yet are consistently in great demand in the studios and as sidemen for jazz combos, particularly in the Los Angeles area. Pete Christlieb, whose big tone on tenor was major asset for Doc Severinsen’s Tonight Show Band in the 1970’s and 80’s has been finally gaining some long overdue recognition for his hard-driving style and quick imagination. Speaking of rapid, trombonist Andy Martin can keep up with most saxophonists when it comes to both speed and fertile ideas; like Christlieb he works often with big bands where he invariably ends up being one of the orchestra’s top soloist.The rhythm section is far from overshadowed by the impressive frontline. Terry Trotter has worked extensively in the studios, with Larry Carlton and as an accompanist to such singers as Ella Fitzgerald, Natalie Cole, Jeannie Bryson, Frank Sinatra and even Kenny Rogers. But it is with his own trios and in this freewheeling quintet that the pianist really comes into his own. Bassist Jim Hughart, a member of Joe Pass’ classic For Django quartet, has worked with Trotter many times through the years, including with Natalie Cole. Drummer Dick Berk appeared with Billie Holiday at the 1958 Monterey Jazz Festival and has been busy ever since, both as a sideman and as a leader, most notably with his Jazz Adoption Agency which helped introduce a young trombonist named… Andy Martin!The tunes on their set will be familiar to straightahead jazz fans but the solos are fresh, enthusiastic and unpredictable, and the performances (even with high expectations) are even better than expected. In other words, everything works! Scott Yanow, Editor, All Music Guide To Jazz

Recorded at The Boiler Room, New Orleans, Louisiana on November 29 & 30 and December 27 & 28, 1996
Leroy Jones is a fine New Orleans trumpeter based in trad jazz but open to the influence of bop. His clipped phrases give him a distinctive sound, and his vocals are spirited. On this CD, he pays homage to Louis Armstrong by playing several songs associated with "Satch," along with a few of his own original tributes. Teamed up with trombonist Craig Klein and a couple of rhythm sections (including pianist Harry Connick Jr. on two tracks), Jones is in fine form on such numbers as "Struttin' With Some Barbecue," "Jeepers Creepers," and "Ain't Misbehavin'," sometimes re-creating Armstrong's solos and vocals note-for-note, and at other times putting in some of his own ideas. A good-humored and successful tribute. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

LINEUP Ray Anderson tb, lead voc Lew Soloff tp Jerome Harris g, voc Gregory Jones b, voc Tommy Campbell dr Frank Col?n perc Don't Mow Your Lawn
Chicago-born Ray Anderson started on the trombone at the age of eight, mainly influenced by blues bands and Dixieland records. One of the most important innovators on his instrument, his playing compresses 70 years of jazz ranging from traditional up to funk and free form. Along with numerous releases as a leader, Ray has performed and/or recorded with the bands of Gil Evans, Anthony Braxton, Carla Bley, David Murray, Bennie Wallace, Charlie Haden, George Russell, and many others. For several years now, he has been winning most of the international trombone polls.
With the debut recording of his new Alligatory Band, Ray Anderson updates the heavy funk concept of the well-remembered Slickaphonics he co-led in the eighties. The new sextet gives the essence of fiery funk jazz with great solos on trombone, trumpet and guitar, an irresistible rhythm section and energetic vocals by the leader offering some strange and humorous lyrics. The CD "Don't Mow Your Lawn" is groove and fun and will be presented along with a beautiful 12-page fold booklet.
