Featured on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's mini series One to Watch, Toronto-based trumpeter/composer/educator John Pittman is in high demand as both a soloist and lead player on the jazz, commercial and salsa scenes because of his big sound, high energy and melodicism.. His playing has been described as having a “wide dynamic and emotional range consisting of ideas that are “very unique” even when performing within more traditional contexts.
“He had the fire and enthusiasm of a young lion…. I hope you get to experience
his artistry.” —Byron Stripling, Trumpet Performer/Artistic Director, Columbus
“The band played a number of instrumentals, showcasing some great solo work
from John Pittman.” —Chris Smith, Winnipeg Free Press
