Ed Tarr, RIP



  • Just heard that Ed Tarr passed away this morning. Great trumpet historian and natural trumpet pioneer/performer of our time. 😢



  • @Bob-Pixley Sad, sad news. His recording of the Hummel is the one I prefer.

    Very sorry to hear this. Actually I'm kinda stunned. Because I'd very recently thought about him after not thinking of him much since college. In fact I'd done a wikipedia search on Tarr only this past weekend. Just to see if he was still among the quick.

    His natural horn was fantastic. As was all that he did. And who could forget that "cookie cutter" piece he was using back in the 1970s? I used to think that the Schilke 22 was difficult to support but Ed played a No 24!! An artist model. Those Germans like the roar of that "Teutonic sound".
