Guess The Trumpet Player

Hello Readers, it’s time for the nineteenth installment of “Guess The Trumpet Player.” While not as difficult as last week’s, this week’s episode is a little tricky too. You only get one short blues chorus to work with. But think about the era of the track and think about the nature of this trumpet solo and that should give you a hint. There are also a few things in the language the player uses that should tip you off. Hope you dig it.

Click the link (it’s safe), click play, listen, guess the trumpet player. The first person to leave the correct name of this trumpet player in the comments section of this post wins a CD – your choice of Outside Pants Vol. 1 – Old School Players or Outside Pants Vol. 2 – Ron Miles Mix or Outside Pants Vol. 3 – Brownie Mix or Outside Pants Vol.4 – Dave Douglas Mix. The contest ends with Monday’s post.

Here’s the tune: http://www.box.net/shared/s2q2f6i3n9

  1. Philly trumpet man Adam Hershberger has correctly identified the trumpet player as Dizzy Gillespie. Technical difficulties have prohibited Adam from posting the answer himself, but Adam is this week’s winner. Nice work and thanks for playing!
