I've been playing on a church worship team that consists of 4-6 vocalists, drums, keyboard, guitar and bass. The music that they mostly want me to play is accompanying an exceptional female alto vocalists who has a very kind of soul/blues/gospel style. I've been experimenting with different sounds with her but I don't have any experience in this sort of slow, raspy very emotional style and I've never really heard it before with trumpet. Anybody know of any recordings where there is this kind of voice accompanied by trumpet to give me some ideas about how to blend and complement her?
Thanks for any tips.
