Well I guess this thread merits to be closed now.

Thank you musicofnote for bringing this thread completely off-Topic.

I would ask the pro musicians on this forum if the first sentence opening statement is true? When you are improvising, do you reinterpret the chords? It would seem to me that you would need a very good rhythm section to pick up on any chords you change. Or perhaps you would ask them to play simple chords without the complicated chord extensions?

Though I do not consider myself to be a jazz musician, I work with people that really are. And they do interpret chords to the point sometime I have to ask what the heck are they playing  Don't know Sometimes they don't know either :-0 Ussually the saxophone is leading and the piano is folowing, but mostly is a bi-directional communication. For them is kind of natural and fun, for me often is: what the heck???

It depends on context. If the pianist is comping a harmonized shout section, they will probably play the chords as written, except that they may omit some of the notes; the idea is that they don't want to clash with the written lines that others are playing. For solos, there are typically less extensions written to give the soloist and the compists the freedom to add their own more easily.

I am no a moderator, but please keep things civilized. I looked up this guy Chris Bill, he is moderately good, edited or not, nothing so fancy about him and his playing.

as for multitracking..I would rather look up to

The gentleman I was referring to was Paul Chapuis, former solo trombonist with the Basel Radio Orchestra who then took over bass bone and then retired when the radio orchetra was merged with the symphony orchestra. We taught at the same school and my wife had trombone lessons with him while I was still teaching trumpet.

I don't speak French, but if I'm not mistaken the "tiu" you mention is done in a manner, that the tip of the tongue is anchored at the base of the lower teeth while the forward middle part of teh tongue arches against the upper palate to make the sound.

When I do my "seed spitting" for lower valve and pedal notes, my jaw is dropped slightly forward and after the tip of the tongue strikes the lips, the tip regress quickly and lays flat on the bottom of my mouth.

Oh, and greetings from snowy Lupsingen just outside of Liestal in BL. :-D

Your "tiu" seems to be what I call by "dorsal tounging" common in Sweden. The tounging between the teeth is common for tubaists French horninsts and trombonists in very lowe range, usually the jaw drops and move slightly forward. But the lips are still in contact.
Some players canīt do that, maybe they drop the jaw to much? Some players do have a sympatethic conection between the jaw and lower lip, when they lower the jaw the lower lip follow down and the apperture get to large. It can be cured sometimes at least.

Note " tounging betwen the teeth donīt nessecary means a bigger aperture at rest"
When you are playing a high tone has two appertures that the lips are moving between, close and a small.
When you are playing a low tone the two appertures are closed and big. On a very low tone the big apperture is very big, bur the small is still closed.

That said, if your playing is fine, donīt change anything!

That`s funny because I find the Kings stuffy or restrictive in the upper Range and not the Bachs.

That is why both of these great horn makers have survived!! lol

I've got one.  Has a decent sound.  It's in probably average shape, meaning someone who really liked it would have some work done.  But I know myself well enough now to know I will never play this even for curiosity.  And I'm too lazy to put it on ebay $1 bid.  But I'm not too lazy to go downstairs and fish it out and hand it off to anyone who stops by, Boston north shore.
