Here is a project that I worked on nearly two years ago that I'm just hearing right now from singer DenZon Hicks. His album "Shoot From the Hip" was released this past Nov. I wrote all the horn charts for this album and play trumpet on it as well. David Thomas is playing Organ on this track. There are some legendary rock musicians on this album besides Freddie Salem, including Joe Vitale and Joe Walsh.http://youtu.be/pwd48-aBaogOne more...http://youtu.be/xrZ5oZt9bqM ... See MoreSee Less

Wow, this young pianist is spectacular. I think he's 11 years old now...and he plays the piano like few ever will. Looks like he's got an album on the way, I'm sure it will be awesome. Pretty inspiring to see such a young talent. Imagine what he'll be playing when he's 12 ... or 20?!http://youtu.be/Cf5QEeIDjIg ... See MoreSee Less

This is a cool video, trumpet master Jon Faddis showing off some considerable skill imitating some great trumpet players. I'm sure he could have kept going on and on demonstrating even more players. I've had the opportunity to meet him a few times, and hear him play. He plays the trumpet like no-one else - he is also a great teacher (as should be evident from this video). ... See MoreSee Less
