Your musical influences
Being a trumpet player I like to think that I have been influenced by all the great players going all the way back to Louis Armstrong thru Roy Eldridge, Dizzy Gillispie, Miles Davis, Clifford Brown,Lee Morgan, Kenny Dorham,Chet Baker, Freddie Hubbard on through to modern players such as Wynton Marsalis, Nicholas Payton, Roy Hargrove, Brian Lynch and well there are just too many to name. I listen to them all.
What equipment do you use?
Vincent Bach Stradivarius limited edition model based on their 1930's build trumpet. Bach flugelhorn that I have had for 25 years. Monette B6 mouthpiece on trumpet and a Schilke 12 flugelhorn mouthpiece.
Anything else?
I am a professor of music at College of the Mainland in Texas City, TX in my 23rd year of teaching. I am principal trumpet with the Galveston Symphony Orchestra and have held that position since 1981.
