Trumpeters in the know know of Adam Rapa. I’ve blogged about him before. He’s an amazing player. Check him out playing on a Yamaha Silent Brass Mute (the best practice mute you can buy, now upgraded), put through a distortion pedal. I don’t know which one. Adam, if you’re out there, we’d love to hear about your gear.
Please correct me if I’m wrong, but at 1:28 Rapa and the Army band bust into an arrangement of Chuck Mangione’s Children of Sanchez. Not long after, Rapa takes a solo and wails like a bad-ass electric guitar. Superb!
