Jonathan, speaking of trumpet players, have you heard of Bria Skonberg? She lives in Brooklyn and is incredibly multi talented. Worth checking her out. My wife was a professional trumpet player, but unfortunately I lost her in 2010. I ran into Bria at The Players Club in NYC in 2011. I wish my wife had a chance to have met her.

Maybe you can do a show/piece of young trumpet players!

Best love the show every Sunday

Jonathan's is a good list. I would also have include Jack Sheldon.
