The 1940's Czechoslovakia rotary-valve trumpet used here had been manufactured in the city of Brno. With a seam running down the brass bell, plus unique rotating valve system, it gave off a warm and sliding tone, inspiring this tune and my lazy lip. Written for and premiered here during my 2001 VCU Composition Recital, it was never performed again: me on trumpet with pianist Amy Daugherty Wenninger.
