Hey Trumpet Friends,

With Hurricane Florence approaching my house, I’m evacuated and have some time on my hands, so I’ve decided to surprise release my new mini-album “The Trumpet” today.

The album is 5 tracks (4 originals and 1 cover) dedicated to trumpet players that are friends and important to me in my development (Tim Hagans, Jay Coble, Augie Haas, Jason Carder, and Alex Norris.) I wanted to write some new music this summer, but didn’t have the time or energy to put together a live band with two small children at home, so this album is a challenge with a few rules:

1. I composed, tracked, engineered, and produced the entire album at my home studio.
2. All sounds must originate from an acoustic trumpet.
3. All the music must be written on the trumpet (or singing) – no piano. This was a REAL challenge.
4. All songs must have some written material and improvised material with the improvised material later being “comped” or used to develop more compositional material.

I hope you’ll consider checking it out. I’m doing a digital only release for $5 at the following sites:

This was a fun project. I used 5 different trumpets, a bunch of mouthpieces, nearly 100 individual trumpet tracks, countless sheets of manuscript paper, and came up with some interested musical solutions (like using valve clicks running through a gate to a signal generator to layer “samples.”)

Thanks for your time and good luck to those of you also in Florence’s path. Music!

Best,

Matt

Bought my copy and am cranking it up in the shop today! Amazing album, Matt! A ton of work and sweat put into this effort. Great playing, writing, fun, and of course incredible trumpeting!

Thanks so much Trent! It means a lot to me.

This is also hilarious as I was hiding out in the kitchen last night watching your video on the differences between your mouthpiece blanks and my wife said "What are you doing back there?!?" I replied "learning!!!"

Hahahaha.

Hope to see you soon. Thanks for spreading the word. Music!

Matt
