Rips & Flares

The “Upward Gliss” and “Rip”

From the Jimmy Maxwell book "The First Trumpeter":

The upward gliss- It is appropriate that the upward gliss should accompany or follow the "drop" or downward gliss because the action of the lips and the use of the "half valve" (actually the valve is generall pressed down only 1/3 of the way, but is widely called the "half valve") is the same, although in reverse. This flissando is not used very often in arrangements although there is some use of the "rip", an ornament that is done upward through harmonic series hopefully landing on the "target note". We will deal with the "rip" following the "upward glissando".
