Album Notes
...I've worked with both Maynard Ferguson and Doc Severinsen...and all I can say about Dave's sound is....WOW!!!! Biff Hannon (Piano & Kybd player for Doc Severinsen, formerly with Nancy Wilson, Maynard Ferguson and Buddy Rich)

Dave Norman is one of my FAVORITE trumpet players, writers and people on the Planet.....Gregg Bissonette (World renowned drummer extraordinaire)

Dave.....you're "chops" are REALLY happenin'....I had NO idea you could MF!! Bobby Shew (Jazz Legend)

.....as far as his trumpet playing, he can cover all the bases from Doc to Dokshitzer! An amazingly versatile player with unlimited capabilities on the instrument with energy to burn!! Tim Morrison (Hollywood recording artist, former member Boston Symphony and Pops Orchestras)

...Dude.....you have absolutely amazing chops. That was some remarkable playing......Jim Hynes (Top call NY recording artist, soloist and lead player/Broadway)

.....just listened to your CD...you sound great-you are absolutely SCREAMIN'!!!!....unbelievable...Frank Campos (Professor of Trumpet, Ithaca College, Author "Trumpet Technique")

".... Dave Norman has possessed what eludes too many otherwise great trumpet players-that pure, centered, golden sound, coupled with musical taste and sensitivity. He's the complete package-whether playing lead trumpet, fluegelhorn, arranging, or editing. Prepare yourself for some terrific listening!" Dr. James A Ode, former Professor of Brass at Ithaca College, Trinity University, SMU (ret))

Vance Hu

Dude, blow my face off!!!
My friend, you're double "A" was so commanding… I ran down to the Huntington Beach Pier and tossed my horn into the ocean!!!

Great CD!!! Great tribute to the late Mr. Fergerson!!!

Perry G.

Simply Amazing!
I have never heard high notes played with such crystal-clear precision as this. Not since Maynard or Doc could I have imagined someone else screaming notes like that. Wow!!

Tamara Turner, CD Baby

You know when an album brings a huge smile to your face within the first 10 seconds that you've got a winner. Featuring the dazzling trumpet chops of Dave C. Norman, virtuoso and musician extraordinaire, "Stratosfear" is appropriately named as he soars into thrilling and surprising registers, giving these big band tunes exceptional pizzazz. As a complete project, the album is delightful, bringing to mind the 1970s and the abundance of musical vocabulary like we hear on this album. You might even find yourself flashing back to a 1970s television show. However this disc strikes you, though, it certainly won't be disappointing. Dive in and enjoy a trip back in time brought to you by "cream of the crop" players.

Richard Goodman

You captured the sound, technique, and style of all three

Awesome playing. When I closed my eyes and just listened, I felt I was listening to M. F. "Doc", and Herb Alpert. Great musicianship.
