Trumpets & Trombones

Another nice instrument that features a lot of record sleeves, especially in the 1950’s and 1960’s is the trumpet. Miles Davis is of course the most famous player, together with the legendary Louis Armstrong and the dramatic character of Chet Baker, but there’s a lot more around when you search a little better. Nice graphic designs were made, like The Marvelous Margulis album, the Torrid Trumpet cover, The Jay & Kai LP and one of the best: Louis Armstrong’s Hot Five, Volume 2, by Jim Flora.

The first trumpets were made around 1500, so the instrument is known for more than 500 years now. The trumpet has one of the highest tones in the family of brass instruments and is used mostly in classical and jazz music and R&B music. And don’t forget latin and salsa. It’s an instrument to love or to hate. Choose for yourself.

Italian Romance

Italy is the ultimate country for (your) romance. Go to some of the outstanding harbor villages like Portofino and ask your girlfriend for her hand … , rent a Vespa scooter and go across Rome with your wife in a flamboyant dress, or visit the Venice canals in a canal boat for your honeymoon. Sings songs of love, eat pizza or pasta and drink chianti or have an icecream for desert. The Italian history can be seen and felt everywhere in this country. In the 1950’s when the Italian design industry became a global thing, scooters and small Fiat cars hit the roads and in Rome’s Cinecitta studios the Italian film industry conquered the world. Well, what more do i need too say …

Yesterday’s Guitars

The guitar is one of the most played instruments in the world. Since the 1950’s there are album covers with the newest and most brilliant examples of guitar building from companies like Gretsch, Gibson, Fender and Rickenbacker, to name a few. Sometimes also much cheaper models were quite hip, like the great shaped Vox guitars, Mosrite (Ventures) or the Taiwanese Teisco. In this chapter of Musiceureka we visit the great jazz, blues and rock guitarists, some of their best albums and their instruments. From the guitars of Chet Atkins to Frank Zappa, and some nice ukes and double necks as well.
