    Thanks mate. Nice to mentioned in such esteemed drinking company as that! Its a pity our ships crossed in the night as regards playing at Faireys, after all there's a massive KFC just outside the bandroom door! We would both be 30 stone by now! :O)

    Ahh, that takes me back to our Besses days, a few pints at the Hare and Hounds in Lowton (couldn't drink the ale at Besses club!) then off to Warrington for late night KFC. Happy, happy days!

    LOL! If you want "Twinkle, Twinkle" I'm your girl ;).

    Also I've been listening to Ben van Dijk's soundbites on his site and I think he has a lovely sound, have ordered one of his CDs. Something to aim for is always good.

    Cédric Vergères from Treize Etoiles! A Terrific Bass Trombone. The best one for me! Just listen to Beyond the Horizon (European 2007), you'll understand...

    Have to say without shadow of a doubt, the best bass trom around at the moment and i think for some years to come is Simon Minshall from Fodens. I have watched him develop over the past few years and he has turned into one of the finest players around. He can play all aspects and styles of music carrying his sound through all and has nerves of steel!!

    Another Frosty perhaps.........................?????

    if you skip to around 13mins he opens the gala concert.

    file is only hosted for a few weeks though I think


    edit: for some reason it doesnt like showing the link without a random space.. so delete the extra space between the 2 and 0 so the last bit reads _202500.wmv

    called Hercab and it's one of Reid Gilje's arrangements, not sure of the composer.
    Just googled 'hercab music' and got some article about Amy Winehouse not having enough money to pay her cab fare.... wonderful thing the internet.

    I went to the Northwest area last weekend and sat right in front of the trombone sections for all but one performance in the second section and have to say I was totally in awe of the bass trombone player from Rainford band (sorry I don't know who it is):oops:. Was in a class of his own, awesome sound especially in the exposed stuff and bags of power to boot.

    Champ section I'd have to go for Mark Frost or Geraint Griffiths true professionals. Having only lasted 12 months on bass in a past life I have total respect for anyone who can make the thing sound like those guys. :clap:

    Ron Wilkins!

    Primarily a jazz player in the states but he's really very diverse and an excellent teacher. He's not roped by his sponsors - a really good CD of some really amazing solo stuff came out years ago and I was blown away.

    Yes definatly....have had both of them in my left ear (no doubt adding to my deteriorating hearing I now have to cope with) and there is more than a couple of similarities...mind you I suspected he would be the next M.F. when he was 15 and blowing Fodens Bass section away!!. The fact he has just got work with the R.P.O while in his first year at college confirms my suspicions!!!
