the article by jonathan rees started out as a review of the torbjörn hultmark trumpet method

' I cannot recommend this book highly enough to players of any brass instrument, or any brass teacher'

but ended up covering many projects and aspects of torbjörn's current work -
playing, teaching, composing, electronics as well as his work with the soprano trombone project.
