All About Trumpets

OK, Now to start a page about trumpets.  Thanks to Quando for sending us this video of Wynton Marsalis playing the Hummel Trumpet Concerto.  This was filmed before Wynton quit playing “Classical Music” to focus primarily on jazz.  However, it should be a lesson to all that you must immerse yourself in as much music as you can and not just try to “specialize” in one genre or style.  Wynton is the only musician to win Grammy awards for both a classical and a jazz album in the same year.
