Lindsay Beyerstein Sometimes, the most important musicians are the ones farthest away from the spotlight. Laurie Frink was a great trumpet player. Great enough to tour with jazz big bands led by Benny Goodman , Gerry Mulligan where she played lead and Maria Schneider ; to be one of the first female trumpet players on the Broadway pit orchestra circuit in New York. As a freelancer, she was known for her ability to execute just about anything, no matter the level of difficulty. Jazz trumpeter John McNeil first met Frink decades ago in a rock club. A week later, she showed up to a big band rehearsal he was attending. It was the funniest thing I ever heard in my life — it sounded like a wind-up toy, or something played like a 33 [RPM vinyl] disc played on 78 [RPM], you know? It was hilarious — it sounded like a chipmunk playing trumpet. But I started thinking to myself as she's doing that, 'Yeah, that's pretty funny, but Jesus Christ, she's actually able to do that. But she was better known as someone who made a lot of other brass players sound better.

Calisthenics address this muscular demand. How did this book project start?

The original idea for this book began about 20 years ago. Could you say something more about that?

Caruso asked us to help his ideas continue to evolve and we have both tried to do that in our teaching. Caruso was your teacher.

What was it about him, a saxophone player teaching brass? I can not get anywhere near the range she has on the bends, I can do the major seconds but the minor thirds are out of my reach. It is not uncommon to practice an exercise for several months before being able to execute it freely and easily.

He should continue gaining comfort on major seconds - and slow down - the thirds will come when they are ready. The exercises in Flexus are skill builders, not music.

Those students included many of the top jazz musicians in New York — players like Dave Douglas. Some people refer to her as their 'trumpet mother,' because a session with her was part psychotherapy, part cheering section and part, 'Let's figure out the trumpet.


I just said, 'This is crazy, but I'm in Zurich, and here's what's happening, and I'm really freaking out. Here's the hotel number, and if you happen to get the chance to call me, I'll be here for another hour or so. And I'm like, 'Oh, thank you so much for calling! You got a pencil and paper? She saved me.

Flexus - Interview with Laurie Frink

This came about after she helped McNeil completely relearn how to play the instrument — twice — when a degenerative disease left him with limited muscle control. P MS Laurie Frink - changed my life!!

In a heartfelt essay , another trumpeter, Nadje Noordhuis, reflected on Frink's friendship and inspiration. One time, I wrote that I was having a bad day. Within half an hour, she had emailed me a picture of herself in a hilarious costume.

It was so unbelievably funny that I laughed uncontrollably for about half an hour.

I'm laughing through my tears right now just thinking of it. Though Frink dedicated her career to serving others without expectation of recognition, the Festival of New Trumpet Music, a nonprofit group which puts on trumpet-led concerts, feted her with a lifetime achievement award last year. Her student Jon Crowley wrote about the experience.

She sat in the back, uncomfortable with being the center of attention. There was a great photo montage of her giving the middle finger to the camera in various places, her sense of humor was another reason we all loved her.

She got up at the very end when she was finally forced to talk and just said "This has been great, it's like being able to attend your own funeral and hear all the nice things people say about you!

I know it meant a lot to her. Crowley never got to see her again.
