    Trumpet: England's Answer to Doc Severinsen

    This is a clip from the fun movie "Genevieve" (about an old car race in the U.K.). In one scene, the pretty lady runs to the bandstand to show she can play trumpet. First we hear a slow version of the song "Genevieve" and then it goes into a romping up-tempo version. The playing was provided by Kenny Baker (no, not the R2-D2 actor), who was in his 30's when the movie was made. Plenty of chops, there!

    It is also a FINE example of an actor who does not know how to look like a trumpet player (there are many such)!
