Last July, during the “Heat-Dome,” I managed to gather Ted Poor, Eric Revis and Orrin Evans into the studio for a two-day recording session. We were also joined by Skerik and Johnaye Kendrick and the result was inter-stellar to say the least! Look for this new project early next year.
Looking forward to October, my good friend and brother Ray Vega and I will reunite once again for another East-West Trumpet Summit. This time we will be joined by Roy McCurdy on drums for a performance at the Bellevue Jazz Festival followed by a day in the studio for the third Trumpet Summit album. This one is sure to be a swinging affair!
