Two trumpet solos of Tom Harrell on April Mist
Tom Harrell is one of my favorite jazz trumpeters ever. These two Jazz trumpet solos are a big reason why. Tom Harrell has a really nice trumpet sound and Jazz style on these two solos. I would consider Tom Harrell to be an aggressive trumpet player. That’s just my opinion though.
The first April Mist trumpet solo is on the recording Playing with Fire – Bobby Shew Quintet. There are really a lot of great licks you can get from this Jazz solo. I could listen to this trumpet solo all day and not get tired of it. I like this Jazz solo better than the next one. I’ll let you decide which one you like better (feel free to comment on this post).
Tom Harrell takes a solo on April Mist again, but this time on a CD called Visions. Once again there are a lot of great licks to take advantage of in this Jazz trumpet solo. I think Tom Harrell plays a little bit more aggressive in this solo. Both Jazz solos are just awesome. Just like the first trumpet solo, I could list to this Tom Harrell trumpet solo all day long and never get tired of it.
