Who gave you your first trumpet?
“I got my first trumpet when I was six from Al Hirt. My father was playing piano in his band, and as a Christmas present I received a trumpet – a LeBlanc.”
Do you know everything there is to know about trumpet playing?
There’s so much to know, it’s hard to know everything about anything. There’s so much to know, period.
What is the best advice another musician has ever given you?
One time Sweets Edison told me “Don’t play like you’re trying to prove that you can play. You can play.”
He is just great. In his personality, and of course in his huge talent.
July 16 awaits you for a unique experience: a summer night in an absolutely extraordinary venue, and great music by Wynton Marsalis.
If I were you, I wouldn’t miss it for anything.
