Mary Pappert School of Music
Jazz, Trumpet, Classical, Improvisation
This recital will encompass all the styles of music that I have encountered during my years at Northwestern State University as well as at Duquesne University. There will be a classical piece by Alfred Reed, "Ode to Trumpet"; to represent the studies I did in my undergraduate years. The jazz pieces, "Confirmation" by Charlie Parker and "This I Dig of You" by Hank Mobley, will represent the years that I have spent studying jazz at Duquesne University. The original piece "Latin Burgh" represents some of the experiences I have encountered with the Latin bands while being a Pittsburgh resident. The other original piece, "Blues for S.J.", is my way of saying thank you to Sean Jones for taking my trumpet playing to the next level. The arrangement of "Pure Imagination" will show what I have learned from my studies with Mike Tomaro, and that it takes imagination to create beautiful arrangements and compositions.
