The music that blew my mind

We had the pleasure of seeing Irvin Mayfield play at his very own club tonight with elements of the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra. Irvin was easily the greatest and most tasteful trumpet player I have ever seen play. His band was nothing less than phenomenal and had a few surprises for the crowd. The drummer had the chops of Buddy Rich and the voice of an angel. The trombone player could make a grown man weep with his soothing voice and amazing prowess on brass. The sax player had the tone of Stan Getz and the tenacity of John Coltrane. I will never forget the night that this band knocked me into another world.
