Marty Ehrlich’s “A Trumpet In The Morning”

I’m honored to be on this fantastic new CD on New World Records by Marty Ehrlich, a musician I deeply admire and also a mentor and friend. His Large Ensemble features an incredible group of people, including some veteran master musicians on our scene. The title track is especially powerful, a concerto-like work featuring the beautiful sounds of J.D. Parran, who with Marty shares a deep connection to St. Louis and the Black Artist Group (BAG). There’s been lots of nice press for the album including an interview with Marty on NPR’s Fresh Air.
