Summertime, trumpet and voice; when time meets passion!


I’ve talked about this subject before, but I think some of it bears repeating; I had suggested in the past that a passion of mine was “colorizing” older jazz standards and kind of updating them the way I see them without disrespecting the piece– you know, doing justice.

Why do I want to do this? Because amongst many things, I play trumpet and have been since as long as I can remember. Back in the day, I used to play in band in school, marching band before and sometimes after, and even a neighborhood band called “Black Mist”. Nowadays, there’s no one to play with– no band; that’s why I had to “make my own band” with these digital audio workstations like FL Studio X Producer, Finale 2011, Sonar LE and more… just so I can play my trumpet.

Some of the old standards or classics have vocals as well– like the one I’m doing now, Summertime. Again, I can’t find anyone to do the vocals– both male and female so I have to do the male voice myself and leave the female voice for another day! No operation planned, just talking out load…

So there you have it! What am I trying to do? Find a little soul, grab a little peace of mind and tell a little story (my story)… to whomever is listening!
