[JPL] Flugel Quest

When I toured with Mangione he and I would talk about the flugel vs the trumpet. Outside of the obvious tonal difference....as I understand it the flugel is easier to play. I'm not a trumpeter and could be wrong but I think the flugel is less physically demanding as I've heard from some players. Maybe there is a trumpet player on the list that can get into this more. Mike Metheny is another one that uses the flugel much. At least he did when I played with him as well and Tom Harrell but maybe someone already mentioned him. Check out Freddie Hubbard's us of the flugel on "Super Blue." One day hopefully someone will re-issue that classic.....one of the all time great jazz recordings and certainly one of Freddie's best IMO.

Sorry, I meant Clark Terry, not Art Farmer, but Art played it in the early Jazztet albums.. I think CT was playing it regularly before Art Farmer or Miles.
