Memorable Automobiles from The Past:
Now I am not much for singers and singing groups except for the groups in our courting years and our Grandchildren, several of which are VERY talented. BUT with my hearing, singing is not as much fun as it used to be.
I played the trumpet in school and was pretty good I thought. I was even first trumpet in the last school band I was in. However even a teen ager can learn how good they really are if they pay attention to the Professionals.
So I listened to Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie. Whoa, what a lip! (That is trumpet talk for GREAT) I listened to them because I played the trumpet.
BUT two instruments made my mind jump and rejoice. The guitar (Chet Atkins’ style) but the reed instrument and the sound of that SAXAPHONE! It makes me upset at myself too because that is the instrument dad picked out for me in the third grade. I saw all those buttons (keys) and remembered a trumpet had ‘3’, I begged for the trumpet so he returned the sax that he had bought from a friend and got me an old beat up silver trumpet. I knew I could handle 3 keys. LOL ……BUT did you ever hear Coltrane, Hawkins, Lester Young etc.
Here is Parker and Hawkins the whole thing is about 5 minutes, but it gives an idea and no one is really showing off here:
Anyway the sax yanks my chain. When I think of sax now I think of Myra's Tom, who flies high with planes and gets down with the sax. Any particular instrument especially grab you?
