Greg Gisbert and Eric Miyashiro as kids playing with Buddy Rich
A very young Greg Gisbert takes an awesome trumpet solo on Love For Sale with the Buddy Rich Big Band. To Greg Gisbert’s left is another very young, but awesome lead trumpet player named Eric Miyashiro. I really don’t know how young they were in this Jazz video and I’m not even going to try to guess.
I’ve had the great opportunity to meet both Greg Gisbert and Eric Miyashiro when I was stationed over in Japan. I saw Greg Gisbert playing trumpet with the Dizzy Gillespie Alumni All Star Big Band and Eric Miyashiro was performing with a local Japanese Big Band, I just can’t remember the name of the Big Band.
The Big Band in this video sounds great. Let me know what you think!
