    Hi John,

    Have you heard Aaron play live? I've heard lots of good things about him and I met him last year in Sydney but I haven't heard him play since he was a teenager in LA. If you have heard him, how does he compare with Rob Miller?

    Hi there:

    They are both exceptional players. Rob and his wife Michelle are personal friends so, besides not being really qualified to compare the two, I'd probably be guilty of some degree of bias.

    I do know that Rob plays with Intrada Brass (Bram Gregson) and is rated very highly within that group. He's a featured soloist on their latest CD, The Transatlantic on which he plays Brian Bowen's Euphonium Music -

    I don't have the CD yet but it also features trombone soloist Alastair Kay on Dance Sequence and Londonderry Air.

    Hope that's helpful.

    Aaron is a very accomplished player, and was very impressive when on tour here with the NYSB. I've got a recording he did several years ago with the Preston Citadel Band from Australia, and he had the technique then, but now he's got a much rounder sound to go with it.

    and he seems like a really polite guy (especially for a low brass player) - he kept on calling Ron Mr. Prussing

    Tough call between Aaron and Rob. I'd listen to either of them anyday! I think Aaron has the edge in range and flair. But Rob's such an incredibly tidy player! Like I said, tough call...

    Hi David,

    Do you know that Rob is now the bandmaster at Mississauga Temple? I haven't seen him since his appointment, but it appears that things are going quite well.
