Hello everyone, I didn't mean to hurt anyone's feelings. I love playing loud but only if it is appropiate. I really don't like the fat New York brass sound. It sounds as if it they were making a lot of effort to play (except Phil Smiths, today's premier trumpeter)
I think that a good brass section has to be balanced with the orchestra, realizing that when they play someone else is also playing. American brass cares mor about sound that about tone.
Anyway, I think that there is still a long way for brass to go, keep it up fellows!!!
