It’s truly inspiring to see so many great trumpet players creating amazing music, and I’m happy to share some of it here.
I first heard Adam live at the Jazz Gallery in New York in 2018. An amazingly talented young musician. It’s an absolute joy to hear what he creates. He recently released his latest album “Visions Of Your Other” on Biophilia Records.
I have known Philip for quite a while and have always admired his trumpet playing. But he surprises me again and again. An incredible technique, paired with an outstanding sound and great musicality. Currently he can be heard on Shai Maestro‘s latest record and also on the latest tracks of the great bassist and singer-songwriter Chris Morrissey.
I met Mike many years ago when he was touring with Charlie Haden’s Liberation Music Orchestra. Since then we have stayed in touch, and I have had the opportunity to hear him live several times, most recently with the late great Chick Corea. He is an extremely versatile musician with a great sound and a strong melodic sense.
Festival Of New Trumpet Music 2021
There are too many inspiring trumpet players to choose one. But I am very happy to be part of this community. The last two editions of the festival, which is usually held in New York, were online-only events, and all performances are available in the archive on the website.
“A Prayer For Lester Bowie” is an exciting work dedicated to the great trumpeter by composer David Sanford. I had the opportunity to work on the graphic realization of the cover. The CD was released on Dave Douglas‘ label Greenleaf Music.
