Hi Bradley! I don't have any news from the last few weeks but did post an update in early February. I'm targeting an end of September release and will keep you posted. Thanks for checking in! :) Bria

Bria, This doesn’t have anything to do with your new cd; but I recently watched you on You Tube with a couple of different bands from a few years ago. You are a wonderful improviser...

I am crossing my fingers that you reach your Pledge goal for funding! I enjoy listening to your trumpet-playing and singing. Can't get enough of it, hence why I donated! Might contribute more money if I have any spare change left to contribute. Possibly for Skype lesson!

Very much enjoyed your performance at ITG 2017. A former undergrad. student of mine attended one of your shows in California, met you, and had you sign a plunger mute that said "Kenken, stay Brassy!".

Just finished up my Master's Degree in trumpet performance at University of Iowa in May 2018, and am now teaching and performing in the Austin, TX area. Still lots of work and practice to do. One of my goals is to be a very well-rounded trumpeter. The past 2 years, my primary focus was playing the avante-garde music with new music ensembles, but I did play some lead trumpet in Iowa City, IA. Maybe a Skype Lesson or just talking jazz trumpet with you might help! Just listening to recordings of you and other jazz trumpeters like Adam Rapa, Arturo Sandoval, Thomas Gansch, and others have helped me embrace playing in the jazz style more when I have to play gigs on the "commercial" side of things rather than "classical".

Thanks for your great music!

Enjoyed your first update. In a couple of minutes you gave us a lot of information on how a tune starts out and evolves.
