 How do you do a rising glissando and?

Okay how do you do a rising glissando? A fast one, not like in Rhapsody in Blue.

Also what is a short fall? It's like an arch thing after a note. How do you do it? It's some sort of jazz thing but I can't figure it out.

Also whats an upside down arch thing connected before a note? How do you do it?

And what's an upside down arch on top of a note?

For me, it's all in the jaw and lower lip. All of the things you wonder about - lower lip. Being able to control it predictably -- well that's what practice is for.

Look here for discussions on Rhapsody in Blue.

A (short) fall is a rapid downward scale that ends a note --usually in big band music.

Upside down arch before a note connected to it is a "scoop". Sounds like a short glissando to that note. Finger the note and use your tongue and jaw to start it as though it sounds about a half/whole tone lower and bend up into the correct note.

upside down arch on top of the note is a "bend". You hit the note, and quickly drop your jaw so it sounds like the note is dropping in pitch, then raise it back up to to the note.

So think of the arches as "pitch".

A scoop's arch shows the pitch of the note starting lower, and raising to that pitch. A bend's arch shows the pitch of the note started where it's supposed to be, then dipping lower, and raising back up.
