I had to post it here so everyone would see. He was a great player and teacher. I saw him live around 10 years ago and was blown away. I was just talking about him to Charles yesterday wondering if he was still around. Rest in Peace
My favorite trumpet player of all time. Such a unique tone and style, and he "sang" through his horn better than anyone. His control was beyond that of any player's, as was the sheer joy he conveyed through his playing. A sad day indeed.
