Charismatic trumpeter and vocalist Bob Merrill captures the spirit of history’s greatest horn legends, beginning with pioneers Louis Armstrong and Bix Beiderbecke through Swing Era stylists. Bebop innovators Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis are followed by post-Bop master Lee Morgan and more, then Merrill closes with classics by Al Hirt, Herb Alpert and Chuck Mangione. The New York native’s engaging tribute includes historical details, anecdotes and even one of Gillespie’s upturned-bell trumpets.
