ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In the mid-1960's, a young trumpet player hit the Los Angeles studio scene. On one of his first sessions, the arranger decided to add some extreme upper register trumpet work just for the occasion. From that moment on, he became well known and well used in the studios. He could play everything from mellow jazz solos, classical solos, Motown horns, rock, big band lead and could be asked to take double G's up another octave. That player was the well respected but somewhat unknown Bud Brisbois. Bud's main claim to fame was his prodigious upper register technique, however he was also a great all around trumpet player and teacher. It wasn't unusual for Bud to play piccolo trumpet showing off his great technique and style, then switch to Bb trumpet to show his power, then to flugel to show his mellow side all in the space of one arrangement. Bud was widely respected in the trumpet community and throughout the jazz world as an excellent musician and extraordinary trumpet performer.

This Limited Edition CD includes recordings from Bud's first known session to a live performance from just days before he died.
