I first met Mick Hesse in 1977. It was at a seminar with Bud Herseth on Hedemarkstoppen in Hamar, Norway. 70 brass players attended. The organizer was trumpeter and professor Harry KvebÃ¦k. Mick was part of the arranging group and did also take part as a player in the different sessions. 30 years later in 2007, I learned that Mick had published a book for trumpet and cornet. I contacted Mick and asked if he would let med do an interview about his book project. The next day got a reply - in Norwegian (Mick had lived for many years over here). "I'm in Peru on vacation", he said, "but when I get back we can do the interview". During the last days of January 2008, we had a "cyber talk": An interview with Mick Hesse Ole P.S. A few days ago he told me he is coming to Norway in May 2008. I look forward to that!
