I'm a good call for trumpet in any style as soloist or section player. I don't have high lead chops, but I'm otherwise very reliable and musical.
I'm a good arranger, too, having taken 8 semester of jazz arranging with Doug Richards at VCU, which was essentially the Berkeley arranging tract. I've put those chops to work extensively in a variety of settings, perhaps most notably as one of the primary horn section arrangers for The Mavericks. I've had 2 works performed by the Nashville Jazz Orchestra on their writers' nights, and I've done piles of charts for various jazz and commercial ensembles.
Other than that, I'm just your average super-tasteful 52 year-old dude with 36 years of pro experience.
