Gunhild Carling telling us about her approach to jazz improvisation on trombone.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQsESlGQtGY

I love the way she is so proud of the Trad Jazz upbringing with her family. But more important, how she stresses listening to the early jazz pioneers. Her trombone heroes are also mine! Good!

Does not have the Dorsey vibrato and sound correct, however.

Also you can learn a lot just from watching Gunhild about the importance of entertainment in music. I do not know too many other people who would entertain an audience with a trombone improvisation lesson, including tap dancing. :D

I saw that a few days ago.  Good! Good! Good!

Man, I wish I had half her chops!  She has a wonderful sense of humor too.  A great TEDx presentation.

Never look at the conductor. You just encourage them.

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

Yes she is crazy, we all love her! But I wonder why played "Tommy Dorsey"?
She never play that stuff.
I wonder if she like that stuff?

I was even surprised she is such a fan of Trummy Young. Again, I applaud her taste and heroes! Good!

I was also wondering how many even pro trombonists would have listened so carefully to Jim Robinson. She obviously believes in transcribing her heroes; or at least learning their solos by ear.

Could have done with less tap dancing. :D

I think she likes Tommy Dorsey, because she played that signature as a very young child. I heard her ply it as a 12 year old. Tommy used slide vibrato and was a very fine sophisticated player with great elegance. This was not very Dorsey-like but very good playing anyhow. She appears to be a bit crazy, but I don't know her personally. A great entertainer who can catch an audience on her own like that. Incredible! What energy. I'm catching my breath after this...

Can you tell what's the tune she starts with? I cannot quite decode what she says there, or maybe I am unfamiliar with the title she says...

Muskrat Ramble, actually written by Kid Ory, whose solo she played.
