"My approach to music is expressed as Song and Wind. This is very important to communicate a musical message to the audience.

"This approach is one of simplicity as the structure and function of the human being is very complex, but we function in a simple manner. When we bring it to the art form it becomes very simple.

"Song, to me, involves about 85 percent of the intellectual concentration of playing an instrument, based on what you want the audience to hear.

"You cannot get anywhere without wind. If you think of a car, the wheels will not turn without an energy source--the engine. Brass players must have a source of energy as there must be a vibrating column of air for the instrument to amplify and resonate. The musical engine is the vibration of the lips. However, the lips cannot vibrate without wind.

"When we combine Song and Wind, the musical message, song, is the principal element comprising 85 percent of the consciousness. The remaining 15 percent is the application of the breath, wind, to fuel the vibration of the lips."

Adolph Herseth puts it another way, "You have to start with a very precise sense of how something should sound. Then, instinctively, you modify your lip and your breathing and the pressure of the horn to obtain that sound."

Wind is the energy source used to fuel the conceptual message of the song from the brain. His emphasis of Song and Wind shows how much importance Jacobs gives to musical conception. "Study the product, not the method. Mentalize music by making statements, not by asking questions."

HASH(0xa3a33ab0) von 5 Sternen could be much better, more comprehensive on Jacobs 1. September 2000
Von scarecrow - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
It's a sorry state of affairs when great talent,inspiring teachers as Jacobs doesn't get more comprehensive treatment. Mr Frederiksen has done the best job he could,but only about 20 pages,(as the other reviewer said) are valuable. That's if you are interested in the art of Arnold Jacobs: how to become a virtuoso wind player,a consummate musician.
There seems to be a lack a support for books like within the corrdors of established music in the United States.I also know that music books are not great blockbluster sale items,so they frequently get edited to hell.Well this book should have been edited that's not the problem.The problem is focus and funding. There should have been other writers,those who have shared Jacob's craft for teaching,the various problems in playing a wind instrument,and more on the theories he developed for respiratory situations and breathing,which were quite unique to the world of brass.That's here,but not fully explicative and quite sketchy.
The Chicago Symphony should have found the money to produce a more indepth study of Jacob's art. Instead it seems Frederiksen has much filler material here, biographies of conductors and other brass players which reallylooses a focus and is not important for this study.
Also the hardcover price keeps it out of the reach of the multitude of student wind players throughout the country,those who could really benefit from a study like this.(There is no paperback,nor is one contemplated)
There are such similar situations in music where funding is misplaced. The composer Ralph Shapey,as another example, also from the Chicago area should by now have a book length analysis and discussion of his profoundly powerful music.

HASH(0xa4c54f9c) von 5 Sternen More Wind then Song 7. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a book for the Arnold Jacobs devoted fan only. Full of seemingly everything the author could find on Jacobs, it will leave the reader who wants to get a sense of Jacobs the musician, teacher, or person feeling empty. For a serious musician who wants ideas on how to improve his playing, practicing, musicality, etc., there are about 20 valuable pages buried in the middle of the book. While we have had many great music teachers, there have been far too few books that capture any of the essence of their teaching. While clearly this is difficult to do, it is something that needs addressing. What a book like this should do is to give a sense of what it was that made Arnold Jacobs great. It should analyse what in his methods, psychology, personality, made him what he was. It should give a sense of what a lesson with him was like, how he would deal with various pedagogical problems. I would reccomend this book, because there is information in it that needs to be published. But it also points out the need for further study and publication.

HASH(0xa3753240) von 5 Sternen A biography of one of the world's best tuba players 3. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As a former student of Arnold Jacobs, reading this book brought back many fond memories of this giant of tuba players. His life touched many of the world's best tuba players living today. Those thirsting for Jacobs discography will find a listing of all the recordings he participated in. The book provides fascinating insight into the master's approach to teaching. Any former Jacobs student who wants to have a "refresher lesson" as our friend smiles down on us from heaven will find a treasure trove of knowledge within these pages. And, it has plenty of pictures, too, including the history of Jacobs' find York tuba, which I was priveleged to play when I was his student in Gunnison, Colo. in the '60's.
HASH(0xa3f6b39c) von 5 Sternen Good book recommend it for all brass players 13. August 2013
Von Ray Edward - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The book was a very good tribute to Mr. Jacobs an Icon in the Low brass community. The only thing I wish there was more of would be more details about his teaching and playing techniques, but that's probably too much to ask for a book of this nature. I would highly recommend this book to brass players, as well as woodwind players and singers would benefit from reading it as well.
HASH(0xa3a338ac) von 5 Sternen Simple but has a lot of great teachings from AJ 27. März 2010
Von R. Lee - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I found this book very helpful in the concepts that were taught. It is obvious that nothing would compare to what Arnold Jacobs would teach in a private lesson, but I feel that this book fulfills its purpose in giving the basic ideas of his teachings and what his life was like. Great book, I would recommend it to others to read.
