Clip from Mr. Rogers Neighborhood, Season 16, Episode 13, with a young Wynton Marsalis on trumpet, Joe Negri on guitar, and the incredible Johnny Costa (who was also the music director for the show) on piano, playing the Fred Rogers composition "It's You I Like", along with a medium-tempo blues. Originally aired May 7, 1986.
In this unique DVD, Wynton traces the history of the Trumpet from the early examples of a Conch Shell and Ram’s Horn, to today’s modern orchestral and jazz instruments. He explains how the construction of the Trumpet has changed over time, and demonstrates those changes by playing and talking about different historical instruments and their respective historical eras. In addition to this entertaining and interesting historical review, Wynton includes two bonus sections specifically for the trumpet player and musician. "Essential Tips for Getting Your Sound", and "From The Beginning", give the player unique insight from this excellent educator, Pulitzer Prize Winner, and superb musician to bring into your own sound every day ! These are programs that everyone interested in the Trumpet or how to play it should have in their collection!
In October 2012 we embarked on an epic project to capture Australia through the mediums of timelapse photography and slow motion. The journey has been dedicated to this purpose. We’ve travelled by car, sea and air in excess of 43,000 kilometres, taking more than 300,000 photos. The hours have been long, the distances travelled have been vast but the landscapes have been inspirational. I’m thrilled to show you MADE IN AUSTRALIA in a way that is rarely captured.
I’m also thrilled that BOY ROBOT has graciously given me permission to use their soundtrack, LIVE IN VANILLA, as the score for this short film. I think that it complements the Australian landscapes perfectly. The music can be purchased at itunes.apple.com/album/rotten-cocktails/id69903493
Many people and businesses need to be thanked for their invaluable contribution to the project.
Most importantly, I’d like to say a huge thank you to my assistant, Sarah. Her contribution has been immeasurable.
To the many hotels, motels, friends and relatives that provided accommodation along the way, thank you. To the businesses that welcomed us, thank you. I urge you to support them in your own travels. Their details are listed on my website.
