Leroy Jones trumpet solo on Bourbon Street Parade

Posted on August 06, 2009 by Sweets

Leroy Jones doesn’t start taking his trumpet solo until the 3:15 mark on the video. Craig Klein took a very energetic trombone solo as well but if you want to skip ahead, feel free to do so. Leroy Jones does some circular breathing on a G above the staff, pretty cool if you ask me. I guess I’m writing about Leroy Jones because I recently had the opportunity to see Leroy perform live at the New Orleans 2009 Satchmo Summer Festival. It was a great show. I didn’t know that Leroy Jones did a lot of singing.

I always liked Leroy Jones’ trumpet sound. He has a very unique trumpet sound that is very light and mellow and easy to pick out among other Jazz trumpet players out there.

Is it just me, or does Harry Connick Jr look really young in this video?
