***Bandcamp link in bio*** Recorded yesterday for #intljazzday, I put together a blues using only the trumpet. I initially decided to create a #bluesthevirusaway challenge. I noticed that the project had skewed far from its original intent, but I decided to let the spirit take over. I present to you, a mantra to heal, ease the mind, give us all the ability and headspace to transcend, vibrate, thrive, and prosper. This is for peace. This is for love. This is for health. This is for positivity. This is for the laughter we share, the pain, the joy, the sorrow. A blues from me to you, a blues from the tomorrow. I hope you all enjoy. I challenge @marccarymusic @theocroker @ashlinparker @kamasiwashington @avhamilton__ @benwmsonbass @_.bohemia._ @marcusprintupofficial @curtisdtaylor @therealmarcusmiller @avhamilton__ @brentbirckhead @ryanpapaporter @jeanbaylor @wesleyblows @thebaylorproject @iggysoul @russellgunn @stefonharrismusic @terence_blanchard @therealalexhan @tdblows @dannyjanklow @iamjustinjones @jasonmarshalljazz @jasonhainsworthjazz @thejasonmoran @mauricebrownmusic @sjonesjazz @keyonharrold @mhillsounds to create a blues “disinfectant”.
