This album is the first of a two-part recording from a live date at Shaker & Vine in Portland, OR on Dec. 12, 2013.
This is the maiden voyage album for this unique band of Portland, OR musicians. The 3 Trumpet Band was formed by trumpeter Dick Titterington in 2013 as a means of getting together to hang & play with 2 other good friends who also happened to be trumpeters. The seed of the idea was sown a decade ago when Dick & his friends were the local trumpet section for Mel Brooks' hit broadway show "The Producers" when the the tour came through town. Although the personnel have evolved somewhat (along with the name….it was originally called "The TMC Project"), the 3 Trumpet Band is providing a forum for 6 musicians to come together and share arrangements and original compositions in an atmosphere of friendship and mutual respect. We have a ton of fun bringing, learning, & performing this stuff and we trust you'll have a good time listening to it!

Dick Titterington - Trumpet / Flugelhorn (Founder)
Paul Mazzio - Trumpet / Flugelhorn
