    One aspect of learning music I was always taught was to listen to and appreciate other players' performances. With the growth of YouTube, we now have the capability of watching former legends as well as hearing them. Have you found any clips that you have benefited from seeing? I will kick off with this Maurice Andre video as it demonstrates role-playing in small chamber settings.

    Here's another clip with a jawdropping line-up of trumpet players involving Jon Faddis, Roy Hargrove, Randy Brecker, Lew Soloff, Terence Blanchard and Terell Stafford at the Trumpet Summit in 2004.

    Can't do the posh stuff, but this is a great vid of Arturo Sandoval, Randy Brecker, Byron Stripling and Chuck Findley battling on Cherokee with the GRP all star Big Band.

    Andy, you can gat the youtube video directly on tMP by putting the youtube reference nummer (the part of the link after the "="sign) between [ youtube ] and [ /youtube ] (without the spaces)

    This time, I've done it for you ;)

    These are great, from what I'd previously seen of Youtube I thought it was just people's videos that weren't good enough for You've Been Framed'!

    Andy, thanks for the Dave Weckl (it's been a while since I have heard him) ... here's the band I first got to know him with ... Chick Corea's Elektric Band (and one of the last great fusion bands of it's era).

    I always wondered how Pat Metheny would manage to put this track from Secret Stories live on stage ... he's convinced me (and it's one of my favourite Metheny tracks as well ... enjoy!). This is an arranging/composition masterclass in my humble opinion.

    Here is a useful video from one of the most progressive brass quintets I've heard in recent years ... Rhythm & Brass


    - Rex Richardson, one of trumpetmike's buddies, has uploaded some of his own stuff here.

    This one's for Dyl as he likes this caprice so much ...


    ... and the dulcet tones demonstrated in this Bach video


    ... not forgetting the versality of brass performance
