Trumpet Inspiration 49

Jens Lindemann is our featured artist for today. I had the pleasure of hearing him play (twice!) with the Canadian Brass when I was in high school.

Jens is an outstanding trumpet player, brilliant musician, and an incredibly funny and entertaining showman. He has been featured as a soloist with countless ensembles, and he toured for many years as a member of the Canadian Brass. He currently teaches trumpet at UCLA.

In this video, he is performing an arrangement of classical melodies mixed with a jazz/rock rhythm section. He’s playing on a piccolo trumpet (one octave higher than a traditional Bb trumpet). What a fun video!
