    The first great British Jazz Trumpeter, Nat Gonella, played off centre and many young players at the time copied him.
    Digby Fairweather plays very sucessfully with his mouthpiece somewhere close to his right ear....

    Oh yes...
    I've played alongside Digby many times and marvelled at how he does it....
    Played with Nat Gonella too but only after he'd given up playing Trumpet and was only singing but what a guy !!

    I remember Bill Houghton (Former Principal Trumpet LSO) demonstrating how he played using only top lip and tongue by playing with his tie in his mouth - over his bottom lip... Triple tongueing no problem. Scary !!

    The lead trombone with the U.S, Air Force jazz band (Forgot the Name) pulls to the side, and increases the pull in the high range.

    What's the name of that ex-YBS principal? Great player - never done him any harm.
