Trumpet Intonation

Suffice to say I'm no expert on this subject - if you want to dig deeper, try these searches online: "Trumpet Intonation", "Spectral Composition Trumpet". Have you ever wondered why Don Cherry always sounds out of tune? - Read on.

Glossary:

Intonation - the subdivision of the octave, the notes

Just Intonation - a subdivision of the octave that uses whole number ratios, exclusively. Harmonies are perfectly in tune because many of the overtones that constitute each `note' are whole number ratios (these special overtones are called Partials)

Tempered Scale - the scale we actually use. It subdivides the octave into even steps, thus allowing us to play in more than one key. When compared with Just Intonation, notes are up to 6% out (in part, Vibrato helps to hide this fact; the microtonal bends in blues tend towards Just Intonation; an acoustic guitar sounds better tuned using harmonics, while a lead guitar sounds better tuned using frets, etc)

A trumpet is played using harmonics (the air inside vibrates according to different whole number ratios, depending on the player's embouchure - Just Intonation). These harmonics are in-turn subdivided using the valves: the result is in neither the Tempered Scale nor Just Intonation. However, the player can vary their embouchure to rectify the pitch to either the tempered scale or just intonation - online you can view orchestral trumpeters practicing against the root note of a given scale (ironically, the result is in Just Intonation and would be out of tune with an orchestra). Played straight, the notes of a trumpet are typically up to 8% out when compared with the Tempered Scale; some notes are sharp, others flat.

This is WLS'magnum opus,a 4.5 hour series of pieces remembering the struggle for Civil Rights,and commemorating some of those involved.Some familiar names,some I'd not known before--after all,I'm British,not black,and not steeped in the American history of this period.I knew of Medgar Evers from Bob Dylan,Rosa Parks from news broadcasts of the day,MLK because he was an inspiration to all but the most prejudiced of people,etc.
It is a great jazz cd set,maybe that should be GREAT,as it is one of those that will live with you,and resonate for a long time.
I had thought David S Ware was the last hope for American jazz,but this is one of the outstanding releases of ALL TIME.
If you're open minded,open your wallet too,and get this.
I'd call it an essential.
