Mostly Trumpet

Trumpet reigns supreme in this podcast. We hear from some great trumpet players across many generations. We begin by featuring Josh Evans from his first recording as a leader, and as a sideman on others. Then we hear some classic jazz horn playing from the likes of Donald Byrd, Woody Shaw (w/Larry Young) and the great Miles Davis. The trumpet set concludes with Ambrose Akinmusire, Avishai Cohen and Sean Jones. The podcast concludes with a tribute album to the late Melvin Sparks from Sparkplug led by ex-Sparks sidemen Beau Sasser B3 and Bill Carbone drums and featuring guitarist Ryan Hommell.
