New Kinds of Trumpets, Made for James Morrisond


James Morrison is one of the most musical human beings I’ve ever met. A couple years back, I posted a video of Morrison in which he plays all the instruments in the big band except for drums (played by the great Jeff Hamilton). It’s an amazing example of his ability, and reflects his abundant sense of humor, too.

Here is Mr. Morrison demonstrating some new instruments from Schagerl. I don’t know about you, but I’d love to have the trumpets. That bass trumpet sounds great!

The Raven: amazing how the sound changes from warm and soft to bright and loud. Love the articulation, too.

Not a trumpet, still cool: the Superbone
