For more than a half century, Adolph "Bud" Herseth was a living legend in the music world. Having served as the principal trumpet of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra for 53 years, he is acknowledged as the greatest symphonic trumpet player of all time. In fact, he is generally regarded as the very finest orchestral player among brass instrumentalists who have ever practiced the art. Under his leadership and guidance, the entire brass section of the CSO became the most distinguished in the world.

This book presents a comprehensive memoir of Timothy Kent, one of Herseth's finest students. It includes a detailed description of the many years of training which Kent received from Herseth (providing an extensive discussion of the master's musical concepts and teaching methods), was well as an account of Kent's professional career that followed, including 18 years as a member of the CSO trumpet section. His account is truly an insider's perspective on the musical life of Herseth and the phenomenal brass section he led.
