Jazz trumpet player….can play big band (no lead)…combos (virtually any combination) standards…enjoy playing traditional New Orleans Jazz. Recently relocated to Louisiana from the Upper Midwest, where I gigged with dozens of combos and territory bands, and lead my own quintet/quartet for over forty years. I'm a more than competent improvisor and know hundreds of tunes in the standard Jazz repertoire. Looking for a few weekend casuals but will consider much more if the chemistry is right. I'm a semi retired music educator with thirty five successful years as a high school and middle school band director. Graduate of Morningside College (BME) and The University of South Dakota (MM) I am convenient to both New Orleans and Baton Rouge metro areas. Can be in downtown NOLA within an hour. Looking for like minded players who have a passion for the music as I do. Contact phittle1225--g-mail.-com
