How it happened that we have two astounding trumpeters on one show, I have NO idea. But let's assure you: it will be Trumpet HEAVEN :) Not only because of the artistry involved, but because these two artists have mastery over so many genres. Comfortable in all worlds, their music has spoken to audiences from Jazz to R & B to Latin and Pop. Let's give you some information to digest....
Dennis Angel had a choice in high school: Julliard or law studies. He chose the latter and has become one of the most sought-after laywers in the motion picture industry. But his love for his instrument blossomed as well. Dennis has been fortunate in that he has been able to record spectacular work ("Timeless Grooves" and the more recent "On Track") while being active in his practice. We'll hear the modern AND retro Soulful Strutting Jazz of Dennis - and we'll hear about his fast-track life. With special TV and live events coming up!
Jumaane (Jew MAH Knee) Smith also had something pivotal happen to HIM in high school: he got to tour with his Jazz band to Montreux and North Sea for the big festivals there. A few years later, he was in the Inaugural Class of Jazz Studies at Julliard. In 2005, he auditioned for Michael Buble and has been with him since. But he has also played with Natalie Cole, Quincy Jones and Stevie Wonder - to name a few! Tracks from "I Only Have Eyes On You" are on tap - and we'll get the scoop on where Jumaane has been and where he's going. You already KNOW :)
A special show, as is the case with ALL shows this week. Each - on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday - will be two hours. Dennis Angel joins us at the top of the show on 9/30. Jumaane Smith visits at three. Eastern time, of course.
Hope to see you in The Chat Room!
