It’s 5-4.. Do We Have Something for You??? Why, Yessss!!!!!

Zinc? Sunshine? We are trying to build up our immunity here….Hey, what about 5-4? Music can affect you health, and I am willing to give a little 5-4 a try, especially on May 5th, or 5-4 Day!

All due homage to Paul Desmond and Iola Brubeck, who wrote “Take Five”. This is the number one selling jazz single of all time, and was led by the inimitable Dave Brubeck, with a signature drum solo by all-star drummer Joe Morello, with more than a little help from bassist , and honorable Senator, Eugene Wright.

Here we have an etude from Dr. Campbell in 3+2, a.k.a., 5! Enjoy!

BLUES Anyone? A Little 6-8 Sight-Reading?

This feels great to play> I especially like the interplay between the implied 12-8 meter in measures 1, 3 etc. This implied 12-8 almost offers a double time contrast to the more traditional 6-8 measures like 2 & 4. A beautiful contrast of articulations and dynamics.

Respiratory Physiology from Winded! by Steven Eckert, pages 25-41

Breathing exercises abound. The worst example I ever encountered came to me via my friend Tom Horning, who said he had encountered a band director instructing others on his secret breathing method in an undisclosed state. The band director called it the “Sip & Hiss” method, as he encouraged his band students to follow his example. Recently, another band director introduced me to “sizzling”, or hissing the rhythm. Rhythmic acuity and ensemble benefits aside, I would approach the internalization of resistance with great caution, less the tension become transferred to the act of playing. Many breathing exercises seem innocent enough, and are certainly well intended. But what if they do cause harm? Perhaps the most sensitive among us would be the first to notice; the one to whom might be one the most harm-the asthmatic.

david brubeck.com is delighted to continue our tradition of offering some of the finest material available by presenting the work of Dr. Steve Eckert, prominent South Florida trombonist. Dr. Eckert has written a dissertation re-examining the panoply of breathing exercises through the prism of his experiences as an asthmatic and a professional trombonist. We have serialized his work and are beginning with physiology…. Enjoy!

March II from Dr. Campbell

An avid composer, teacher and performer, in addition to several years as principal trombonist with numerous South Florida orchestras, Dr. Campbell would play club dates and, every once in a while, the circus! Have your accent in hand, and plunge ahead! Best wish with this April March!
