Anybody need a bass trumpet?
Lemme know as I'm thinking of parting with my Getzen.
Found me another odd brass instrument I want and gotta let this go, I'm
sure many of y'all are familiar with the drill.
Contact me offline.

Thank you so much for giving us all a beautiful and eloquent word picture
of  this wonderful man - and in the process a few hints of where your own
quirky outlook on life comes from....

I try never to miss the opportunity to expose kids to musical experiences.
The earlier the better, and the impression lasts. My own first organ
experience was a Virgil Fox concert on in a large church in Brockton, Mass.
I remember the impressive look of the instrument, the sounds of the various
sections of the organ coming from all parts of the church, and even some of
the repertoire (which also leaned heavily on Bach.)  I was four years old.
