Program Notes

"I remember..." is a reflection on the music of four great jazz trumpeters, interweaving brief materials from actual recorded solos. The work was awarded first prize in the International Trumpet Guild Composition Competition, and given its first performance by Frank Campos in Evansville, Indiana, May, 1998, at an ITG convention. The solos, in order that they are quoted in the piece, are from the following live recordings: a. Louis Armstrong: opening cadenza to West End Blues (Smithsonian RD033-1) b. Clifford Brown: solo on All the Things you are (Clifford in Paris PR 24020) c. Louis Armstrong: first chorus of Butter and Egg Man (Smithsonian RD033-1) d. Miles Davis: Stella by Starlight (My Funny Valentine Columbia SOPL-160) e. Miles Davis: My Funny Valentine (My Funny Valentine Columbia SOPL-160) f. Dizzy Gillespie: Groovin' High (1946, but album unknown)
