    Here is Harry Connick Jr. with his band in a live performance.
    The great lead trumpet, Roger Ingram nails double high Cs as if they were down an octave.

    No. That is one band he did not play in. Woody Herman's, Maynard's, and Louie Bellson's are just some of the many bands he has been with over his career.

    Not only is Ingram killing it, but the whole band is in a serious groove! That bari player is particularly funky...good piano, good percussion, low brass putting it down!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Roger Ingram is an animal of a lead player - one of the best ever IMO, right up there with the likes of Conrad Gozzo, Bernie Glow, Bobby Shew - those guys.

    Well that's Roger Ingram. Why should any of us be surprised?

    The real difference is that Roger Ingram has something musical to say above high C. There is not one single note that was "hit". He has not conquered anything. It is poetry floating on air!

    Yep - that's why his lead playing is so awesome - he plays with awesome attitude and inflection on every note he plays.
