|I have been performing professionally since 1971. I have performed for three U.S. Presidents. I have also performed with many jazz/big band greats, including Phil Urso, Herb Ellis, Bob Haggart, Clyde Reasinger, and Helen Forrest.|
I was friends with Harry James, and make NO apologies for believing that Harry James was the greatest trumpet player who ever lived!
I am currently leading The Harry James Legacy Big Band in Portland, OR.
I play a Parduba HJ 5 1/2 gold plated mouthpiece. I play a 1952 KING "Harry James" balanced dual-bore Super 20/Symphony/Supersonic refurbished by Michael Del Quadro for H.N. White Co.
