Trumpet Inspiration 50

The New York Trumpet Ensemble has recorded a handful of albums since its founding in 1974. It has featured some of the best trumpet players in New York throughout several decades.

The first video below is the traditional jazz tune East St. Louis Toodleoo from the album Trumpets in Stride. Enjoy the variety of mutes and jazz inflections!

The second video is from their first album, A Festival of Trumpets, where they recorded previously undiscovered works by composers from the Baroque Era.
