“THAT TRUMPET WANTS TO PLAY JAZZ”

Randy Cole’s touching new film — starring trumpeter Kevin Dean and a lovely 1944 Martin Committee trumpet:

Even if you bristle slightly at the name of Miles Davis (as I do) don’t let that put you off.  Listen to Kevin’s beautiful solo rendition of EASY LIVING, admire the beautiful curves of the Martin, and then (if you care to) admire the film as film: Randy is a subtly brilliant artist who doesn’t spoil the mood with three hundred changes of scene in three minutes, but the merging of sound and image is an understated delight.

And one of my heroes, that Jon-Erik Kellso fellow, has and plays a Martin Committee model when the mood strikes him!  So modernism is alive and well in Soho, too, in the Year 2011.
