The trumpet summit

The Trumpet Summit is an ensemble that focuses on the music of the great trumpet sounds of Lee Morgan, Freddie Hubbard, Kenny Dorham, Clifford Brown, Wynton Marsalis, Nicholas Payton and more while still carving out its own styles and sounds each trumpeter brings to the stage.  The steady lineup of Victor Garcia (trp), Quentin Coaxum (trp), Marcin Fahmy (p), Andrew Vogt (b) and Isaiah Spencer (dr) makes for a great musical experience.
