Since you got him to come to Dayton, can you get him to come to TM?
Not when I get comments posted by Kingtrumpet stating: "Yeah, I was hoping for Doc Severinsen, or Chad Shoopman, or Eric Miyrashiro or someone -- well known ---" I am betting Allen has the experience and insight not to be offended by such a comment, but comments like this really don't "show the love" or respect someone of Allan Vizzutti's stature diserves.
So KT, if you agree, do consider editing out your comment, and I will take this one out, because there is a good chance Allen may be reading this.
To demonstrate what a good sport, I will be posting on this thread some of Allen's personal bio that he enjoys to send out to show you what a good sport he really is.
To be honest, (dont hate me) but I have heard many good things about him. But never really read about him or looked up his playing. I am sure I have heard it, but never took the time to look him up.
I know what I will be doing for the next few hours, or until I fall asleep.
Allen Vizzutti Bio Part 1: Introduction
Allen Vizzutti has never been in prison. He has never jumped out of a flying airplane. He has gone swimming with sharks in the South Seas, which prepared him for later life in Hollywood.
He attended college at the Eastman School of Music, which proved to be a very positive springboard from which he dove into the wierd and twisted world of professional music. It was there he met a marvelous and beautiful pianist named Laura who married him much later - after listening to 17 years of his begging.
In the next post... His Home Upbringing
Let me start you with Night Breeze. I am hoping when he sends in his song list to the Quintet, he includes this one:
Night Breeze - Allen Vizzutti - YouTube
And do keep reading my bio clips of Allen Vizzutti
Oh, I am. Cant wait to see how he got his big break! Do we need to post for you to give us more?
2,500 post, that makes me a Fortissimo User. Thanks TM!
So you are sittin there saying to yourself "OK - the trumpet hang in Dayton could be cool, and the brass band concert featuring the Ohio Valley British Brass Band (which I play in) is gonna be great with Allen Vizzutti as guest soloist, and the gig at Gilly's with Allen and Eddie Brookshire is most certainly gonna rock, but surely there has to be some other reason to go to Dayton, Ohio. I mean - Dayton, Ohio for god's sake ????
OK - So here is another great reason to visit Dayton.
The National U.S. Air Force Museum !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Check it out - National Museum of the USAF - Home
If you haven't been there - it is freakin unbelievable !!!!!!!!! Trust me. I live here !! It's a REALLY BIG DEAL !!!!!
What He Said... Dayton is a GREAT PLACE.
Come for the Hang... Come for Dayton...
It's an honor Mr. Stomvi to share the same great city with you.
If Allen is viewing then he will certainly understand. I am 47, so I grew up on listening to Doc on the "tonight Show" - and as for "high note" guys ---- well (since Maynard is passed away --- he couldn't attend) --- and then there is chad Shoopman and Eric Myrashiro. YES -- I could mention other FAMOUS trumpet players -- and unfortunately most of them are passed away. The famous players that I have albums of are Maynard, Phil Driscoll, Doc Severinsen, Al Hirt, Herb Alpert, Chuck Mangione, etc ----SORRY to say ----- but the FACT is, I don't have any Allen Vizzuti albums ---- AND NEVER HEARD OF HIM until my comeback of 3+ years ago ------ those are the FACTS, and ONLY the FACTS. -----
Allen if you are viewing -- I am sorry, so sorry, that I only have a few albums ---- and don't KNOW all of the trumpet players in the world.
OH WAIT --- I know Keith Fiala shows up on TM occasionally -- and though he was very helpful in my comeback -- I actually don't have any of his albums either ---- BUT I HAVE BOTH OF HIS BOOKS, and some very influential personal emails from him........................................
come to think of it --- I don't even have a complete album from you either GM ---- so sad, so very sad ---- BUT by listening to a couple of your singles --- I am putting you on the list for the next album purchase!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOW your moving up in the world ---- I will purchase your music before Allen's. so sad, so very sad ---- I am so sorry Allen Vizzutti --- I heard of Gary Onady, and listened to his music, before I ever got to you ------ I am so sorry, that GM is higher on the list of album purchases.
