For those of you who were unable to catch my radio interview last Friday, you can hear it at the link below in its entirety (except for the album cuts, which are of course available on the album). (However, it does include my very impromptu solo rendition of “Body and Soul,” a.k.a. “The Man Who Didn’t Warm Up”).
Chris Cortez did a great job steering the conversation in interesting directions and making me sound like a decent public speaker–we covered a lot of ground, talking about the history of the Quintet, my background and influences, and the trials and tribulations of playing the trumpet and finding places to perform jazz. (Bonus points for finding where I use the word “fabulous.”)
Enjoy, and I hope to see you at the Octavia this Saturday night!
