This Is Not The New Horn You Are Looking For.

Many have asked if I switched to what looks like a lovely pocket trumpet. No! That is George Colligan in the recent issue of Downbeat. Wish I could take credit for Time Travel to Portland Jazz fest, but alas I wasn't there this year.

Nice hat, though. Thanks, George.
