"For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers,nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Now you can listen to Derek Smith! Derek was one of the premiere cornetists of the brass band world. He was Phil's only teacher until Phil entered Juilliard; and is Phil's Dad. Listen to Derek playing the title track, Heavenly Gales, when only 17, taken from an old 78RPM recording. No editing possible at that time! Follow Dereks legendary solo performances as soloist with the New York Staff Band, as they are re-mastered on this new CD, until he became Bandmaster of the same band. Not to be missed is "Wonderful Words", a duet featuring father and son when Phil was 17. Can you tell who is who?

They combine lyrical and technical playing with a full range from low F# to high D. They are best-suited for the intermediate to advanced player. Also included is a demonstration CD of Phil playing each of these studies. This publication belongs in every private trumpet lesson studio and on each serious player's personal library shelves.
