Trumpet Cam – February 19, 2015

We had a very enjoyable reading session, this evening, with Steven Feifke’s great big band. Here’s a quick Trumpet Cam clip from Steven’s arrangement of the Lerner & Loewe standard “Almost Like Being In Love.” It has a typically challenging lead part, as usual.

(Please forgive the sound quality on this video; I forgot to take the actual trumpet cam with me, so I had to make do with my iPhone.)

“Beautiful” – TOTB, featuring Aneel Soomary

Here’s another in the recent series of videos from last weekend’s concerts with Otto Sauter‘s Ten of the Best at the Wartburg Festival. This time it features my good friend Aneel Soomary playing “Beautiful” – written by Linda Perry, which was such a huge hit for Christina Aguilera. This is a great showcase for Aneel’s wonderful playing and demonstrates why he is the most in-demand trumpet player in Vienna, Austria and numerous surrounding areas!
