Tim Fogarty Trumpet
Hey man, about the five towns audition. Do we need to do improve in our Solo? (besides the head I mean) Also, you should check out Christian Scott. He's a trumpet player who hit the jazz scene semi-recently and uses a raised bell trumpet. His sound is like the closes thing to Miles that anybody's going to get.

yeah you should be able to solo over the changes without any backgrounds or rhythm section and be able to keep the form. That’s what he had the returning guys do. Then a Ballad with no solo. Then Blues improve. And I’ve checked out Christian Scott A lot!! He’s awesome and I agree with the miles thing also! You should check out Ambrose Akinmusire and Nicholas Payton. Check out the album called “Payton’s Place” for Nick Payton it’s killin’ and Also check out “When The Heart Emerges Glistening” for Ambrose. Ambrose is very contemporary but his tone is unlike anything I’ve ever heard. It’s crazy. Check them out!!
