    Back in the early 80's I purchased a solo recording my this trumpet player. It was solo trumpet backed up by the Frank Sinatra band and Billie May arrangements. As I found out more about him I learned he was Frank Sinatra's Lead player.
    He had one of the most beautiful sounds I have ever heard and his lead playing was one of the best. Frank Sinatra used to bring him up front during his shows and showcase his playing.

    I have always been surpised that his name never seems to come up on these forums. Does anyone here recall seeing him play? Is he still around? I have been looking for his album on CD without any luck---anyone know if its available?
