    I usually don't self promote myself or brag to others unless money is involved but recently I was just listening for pleasure an old recording/cd my college jazz band made.
    I have to admit I enjoyed it...usually I critique the heck out of such things...yet I think we did a pretty good job on this project, the whole album.
    This track was my lead trumpet feature and at the time I was really proud of it...and I think now it still is pretty good....yet I think I could do it better with the experience that I have now....anyhow that was then, this is now.

    I submit this recording for further review....tell me what you think....good or bad, I would like to know.

    btw I am STILL playing on the same equipment (for this type of setting) I did during this recording.....it has served me well for over 20 years.

    Yamaha 6310Z
    Warburton 4S/KT bb

    Hope you enjoy.
