    I learned trombone from Bill Rausch, who played with Glen Gray’s Casa Loma Orchestra. Bill (I called him “Mr. Rausch”) said Vincent Bach often gave him horns to try out, whatever his latest creation was, to get an opinion, and described him as a modest man working on a lathe. Just wondering if anyone remember any of this.
