Have been listening lately to the most amazing trumpet performance.
Appears that this CD has been out for a few years, but I just heard about it a few weeks ago.
It’s called Exquisite by Malcolm McNab.
The Violin Concerto of Tchaikovsky is the most incredible trumpet performance I have heard.
Malcolm is one of the top LA studio musicians. He is also a fellow student of my teacher James Stamp. I never met Malcolm when studying with Jimmy, but Jimmy always mentioned him to me, as a point of reference. I did meet Malcolm in 2000 when Steve Bartek invited me to the session for a movie called “Snow Day”. Malcolm was the only trumpet in a 75 piece orchestra. I enjoyed our conversation at the time, though I don’t remember much about it.
