A Celebration of Rafael Mendez with Arturo Sandoval, Wayne Bergeron, Jens Lindemann, Robert Karon, James Wilt, and Miriam Hickman

Naturally, it is impossible to equal the technical precision and stylistic flair of the great virtuoso Rafael Méndez, but the purpose in making this CD was to honor the spirit and inspiration he gave by raising the artistic standards of the trumpet. David Hickman discovered several excellent trumpet solos and trios that Méndez composed but never recorded. This seemed the perfect opportunity to give them rebirth after over forty years of silence…with arguably a handful of some of the finest trumplet players in the world!
