The trombone is a double reed instrument. It is possible to play with the upper lip only, more difficult to play with the bottom lip only, but with both lips we have the extraordinarily diverse sounds possibilities we are accustomed to having.

Not sure what the consequences of this discovery are, if any. . . maybe talking with some double reed players will help. At least I have a new sound! Single-lip playing will go into my bag of useless tricks, along with lipping up, the DJ-on-a-record sound, and the helicopter sound.

Okay, this single lip trombone player deserves a link. I mean … how can one even do that?

And I’m posting this today, in honor of my hubby’s birthday.
