I’ve received quite a few emails and comments regarding one of the recordings that I did during the ’90s, when I recorded trumpet for a lot of Merengue productions. The comments talked about a particular CD being their favorite as far as the sound of my trumpet: “Me olvidé de vivir” of Toño Rosario. That got me thinking and it blew me away when I realized the following:
In that CD I played with considerably LESS volume than my normal playing volume by the time and indeed, my sound came out a lot clearer, bigger and better in every aspect. Food for thought for those times when we want to play louder than Life itself.
