Virtual Performance: Trumpet Legends

In early days of jazz, the trumpet was king, the natural leader of the band. Before the shift to the saxophone as the dominant instrument of jazz, musicians like Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong and Miles Davis put the trumpet in the spotlight. The Charleston Jazz Orchestra will feature members of its trumpet section, paying homage to the Trumpet Legends who shaped its sound, in a virtual performance September 12th at 7:30 p.m.
