The Trumpet

My second favorite music instrument is the Trumpet. I got to hear an hour of trumpet, part performance, part education, at the Habst Theater yesterday, March 10, as part of SFJazz. This was a low key performance, but starved that I am, I was reminded me of all kinds of voices, Zora and Billie, Bolden and Keppard. Let me showcase here, a piece of Louis Armstrong: if you watch the piece on the left, you will see satchmo grab the trumpet at 1:10 and you will want to watch him, as he wails all the way to the end.
