Nicholas Payton’s Jammin trumpet solo on Bags’ Groove
I came across this nice Jazz trumpet solo by Nicholas Payton while browsing around YouTube. It’s on the tune Bags’ Groove and Payton uses a lot of blues licks on it as well as bebop patterns. He even takes his trumpet solo outside the key a little bit and uses a lot of enthusiasm.
Unfortunately, I really don’t have a whole lot else I want to say about the solo except that it’s pretty awesome and I hope you transcribe a few bebop and blues licks from it. I know I will.
Video was removed from YouTube, so hope you enjoy some of his other music instead, my apologies.
