DJML and other low-minded folks--
     Here's a link to The Low Brass Creed, a delicately phrased screed 
that applies to the playing of low-brass instruments in all kinds of 
musical groups, be they concert bands or jazz groups.  Those of you 
with tender sensibilities need to be forewarned that the language is 
rather earthy and rough and even obscene, indeed the verbal analogue 
of the musicians depicted.
