FONT 2008

My son Jeffrey played trumpet; I am in the process of donating his horn to the AACM music school in Chicago (which is where Jeff was born). Because Jeff played, did so pretty well, and really enjoyed it, I tend to notice trumpet items in the news. So, here is a link to the Festival of New Trumpet Music, co-directed by the terrific Dave Douglas. It runs from the 13th to the 28th of this month in NYC. And it runs the gamut from Louis Armstrong to Wadada Leo Smith with many points in between. This is the sort of thing I'd have loved to take Jeff to see and hear. I miss him.
