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

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.
