Is his considered a "smile" embouchure?

Definitely not. Dude's solid.

Both of those tunes are fun, and surprisingly tough to nail down. Not just Dorsey's stuff - the ensemble stuff is tricky.

I always think of "Getting Sentimental Over You" by Dorsey. What a beautiful, velvety tone he had. Sometimes my fellow Salvation Army trombonist friend and I would try to play like Dorsey. Couldn't do it.

Stability wise this is a much harder piece to play than IGSOY - by a good margin.  Also not as satisfying, but a good practice piece nonetheless - you may have to play it some day.

Never look at the conductor. You just encourage them.

Have you noticed, some folk never stick around to help tidy up after practice?

Did this with a H&B style solotone mute recently.  Trumpets asked, "What the heck were you doing out there with this creepy high tone?"
