Jimmy Wilson, Trumpet

Jimmy Wilson serves it up again in his latest work FUTURE HISTORY"They say that in order to plan for the future you have to remember the past. I guess Jimmy Wilson had this in mind when he made his album, Future History. With shades of trumpeters gone before, he takes Lee Morgan, Clifford Brown and of course Miles and merges them with his own experiences to create a melting pot of new sounds. From muted melodies, enhanced with sweet electronics, to bursts of note clusters, played with bravado and a big fat tone, he comfortably wings his way from the 1950's to the present and the future.
Accompanied by some stellar musicians who never become more than the total experience, the result is a montage of modern life, played out on top of a bubbling subculture of synthesizers masterfully programmed by Geeorge Hazelrigg. Each track takes you to a place of imagination - maybe JW's dreams. Wherever it is, it works. Lose yourself in it. The trumpet Gods will be smiling down at the direction that Future History is taking." Pete Solley

Trumpet MIDI Controller

At the Samson/Hartke booth I ran across a guy named Jimmy Wilson playing this very cool trumpet MIDI controller. It's made by a company called Morrison and available through Patchman. The keys on the side control the range (octaves and 4ths) of the notes generated. There are also a number of other buttons that control trill, portamento, sustain, patch change, etc.

"Jazz music has got to have that thing. You have to be born with it. You can't even buy it. If you could buy it, they'd have it at the next Newport festival."
