There seems no end to trumpeters to discover. A buddy recently turned me on to Barry Ries, who apparently plays regularly just up the road from me in Connecticut. I’m psyched to go check him out live and maybe get a lesson or two if he’s still teaching. Mr. Ries has played with Horace Silver, Lionel Hampton, and many others. Here he is playing Theme for Ernie in 2001 with tenor sax man Joe Lovano.
Joe Lovano – tenor sax Barry Reis – trumpet Lewis Nash – drums Dennis Irwin – bass John Hicks – piano
