Michael Davis Interviews Vanguard Jazz Orchestra’s Lead Trumpeter, Nick Marchione

Here’s a fabulous interview by Michael Davis feat. the great NYC lead trumpet player Nick Marchione. Nick’s work with the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra has been largely influential to me, and this interview covers a lot of great information including his work with and how he became the lead trumpet player for the Vanguard band, how to develop a great musical concept, his top five influences as a lead trumpet player (the list might surprise you), what he looks for in a section player, a hilarious anecdote about his experiences as a young working player, and his views on the differences between New York and Los Angeles (I completely agree with his observations on time).

Check it out, it’s very hip….bone……..music.
