David Bilger plays Tomasi and more!

One of the great orchestral trumpet players currently performing in the USA is David Bilger, principal trumpet of the Philadelphia Orchestra.  His playing exemplifies everything we strive for as trumpet players.  Listen and learn from a master!

R.I.P. Lew Soloff

One of the greatest trumpet players of all-time, Lew Soloff, passed away last night. Famous for the iconic trumpet work in the band Blood Sweat & Tears, Lew could play anything on the trumpet with fire, panache, and soul. Over his career he worked with many great bands (Machito, Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Carnegie Hall Jazz Band, etc.), great artists (Aretha Franklin, Paquito D’Rivera, Tony Bennett, Wayne Shorter, Frank Sinatra, etc.), and on many film soundtracks. He was one of my personal favorite trumpet players and will be missed greatly.
