The unique thing this trumpeter brings to the bandstand is that he sounds like he could have been a student of Miles but he isnít trying to ape Miles. What a cool fine line to be able to tread. One of those cats with a day job as an educator that doesnít let the classroom interfere with his ability to swing, this is a sweet, straight ahead listening date that knows you want to groove even if you are sitting down. Well played throughout, this well decorated cat within the halls of academe is well deserving of some more love from the real world. Time to show this cat what valentineís day feels like. Check it out.
