Thought I would share this in case some of you have not seen it.
To do this solo, outdoors, those conditions, and have the gusto, chops, and passion he does, and nail a version most trumpet players would not try with millions watching, was incredible.
I have always dug all the great things he does, truly, in my humble opinion, the most versatile trumpet player today and one of the greatest to ever walk on this planet. He plays great ballads, jazz, lead, latin and he absolutely was awesome on this!
