Album Description

Bob Wagner marks his debut as a solo recording artist with this performance of the rarely recorded Claude Bolling's "Toot Suite" for Trumpet and Jazz Trio. Originally written in 1980 for virtuoso trumpeter Maurice Andre, Toot Suite is a unique and important work in the trumpet repertoire. A combination of strict classical phrasing, ragtime syncopation and swing stylings, "Toot Suite" is a highly entertaining and enjoyable piece for both the audience and the performers. Presenting a unique challenge to the trumpeter, each piece within the suite presents substantial challenges to the trumpeter's endurance, range, technique and style. As a result, this collection is rarely performed or recorded in it's entirety making Bob's version of "Toot Suite" one of only a handful of studio versions ever produced available and the first one recorded in well over a decade.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
