Heading to London


We are currently on the train to Brussels where we will transfer for the 3rd time and ride a Eurostar (bullet train) into London.  We just finished some sandwiches and in Europe they do not put mustard or mayonnaise on them only butter. This time they were dry, but we were hungry and it was better than nothing. Here are a few more pics from yesterday.

    I saw the band in London on the 21st. I had been waiting for that moment for 38 years. Thank you for coming, it was awesome and as a trumpet player who spent many a long hour in the 70s transcribing charts off vinyl LPs for our brass section it was a wonderful night. I hope you found some good tucker in London. Allways loved your playing Mic, well done!

      It’s funny how, in London, instead of being exhausted from this trip, I was at my strongest on the horns. My wonderful wife took great care keeping me in shape to do this and you saw and heard the proof. I’m happy to be back with the band and this tour was the real test. I saw and met many trumpet and trombone players throughout the trip and was inspired to play my very best for all who watched and listened so closely. This is the toughest lead trumpet book in the business, and I could not have maintained such a level without the support of Adolfo Acosta. Thanx Dolly, you could play lead in any band in the world. I learn from you every day.

    Yes Mic, you played very well, you blow me away going from Trom to Trumpet so quick, thats a helluvan ombrochure. Adolfo was great too, awesome flugel solo, I bet that was a BobReeves flugel mouthpiece..well maybe it was a Bach, mmmm. I was encouraged to keep playing and was loving how easy you made it all seem, so tight as ever, wonderful. Good on you Mic, you made one little horn player very happy. Yeh, it is the toughest lead book, but you nail it! I have learned a lot off listening to you, thank you.
