In the first place, I understand that there was two trombone players.  I
don't know which one was doing the corney stuff.

Ihn the second place, to disagree is fine.  But to tell me that I don't have
a clue is extremely rude and unnecessary.

Leave the playing to the players,

I happen to be a player and feel that I have a right to creatic the Wild man
Blues performance.  If you notice, I said, "In my opinion."

but you do have your opinion, which in this case, in my opinion is flawed.

You have a right to your opinion.  However, I feel that you have no right to
be rude.

   Bob Ringwald replies:

  I loved it.  However, while the trombonist played a great solo, IMHO, he
  a little hokey or corny in a couple of spots.  He went over the line just
  bit.  Possibly like a modern player making just a little fun of the
  Traditionalist.  But all in all, it is a great performance.
