    Playing lead in a big band [will admit I'm no lead player] and having the man who runs the band and who is an excellent trumpet player committ on my big fat lead sound, playing in a brass group for shut-ins, but most of playing in a start up British style brass band [ a really good really good reading exercise]. I guess a lot of good moments.

    Deciding to learn trumpet. A decision I have not regretted.

    I played at a jam session and played well and even got an encore! It felt great to get over performance nerves.

    Last week, six months into a comeback, gigging with a rock band the last 8 bars of an old Fleet wood Mac blues number were mine to blow a solo to wrap up the night. Hearing the phat sound of an Olds Recording pour out of the PA reminds me a) why I love this horn and b) how dumb I was to stop playing all those years back.

    Mine was meeting Jon Faddis with my Daughter in Toronto. And the moment that I really started playing the blues. Happy New year to everyone on TM. I hope there is more great memories for 2013.
