     The syncopated crackle of a trumpet is a defining characteristic of jazz, which makes it a defining charactersistic of American music. It's the sound of Louis Armstrong; it's also in Leonard Bernstein's music. You hear it in the first few bars of "West Side Story;" it's in the symphonies, the Mass - it's a signature, and it typifies the extraodinary musical voice Bernstein achieved by assaulting the European classical-music tradition with his synthesis of Amreican jazz.
     His music; whether on the concert or Broadway stage (or in that halfway place he placed his Mass) is lyrical, punchy - and difficult to play. That's why the combination of Bernstein's music and Proteus 7 is so electric.
