Someone should write a pulpy, jazzy detective novel called “Trumpet Trouble”.

Just got this little guy back not long ago. Thanks to Kelly for taking good care of Señor Trumpet over the last few years.

I’m lucky enough now to know some people who, unlike me, can actually play brass instruments, and who are open to doing session work. If you’re thinking that might stop me from using the trumpet and the bugle to lob occasional dissonant curveballs at songs that don’t seem to want them, well…I’ll probably keep doing that here and there until the end of time. Ha!

You can never have too many acoustic ballads with random atonal free jazz trumpet solos.
