Time to pull out the 14th of the 24 records from the six box set from the Franklin Mint. And I’ve been having so much fun listening to this one.

In fact, I’m going to play a few more tunes than my normal six that I like to keep these episodes to because, quite frankly, there was so much good music on this disc I didn’t know where to stop.

The featured trumpet player you’ll be hearing was known as the bridge between Louis Armstrong and Dizzy Gillespie. But he had a style all his own that was quite influential in his own right.

So, get ready to hear the musician that seemed to have the trumpet permanently glued to his lips in Volume 165: Little Jazz on Horn Part 2.
