New Orleans Trumpeter Shamarr Allen

Met and heard famous trumpeter, Shamarr Allen, whose concert was wonderful, of course! He played one note on his pocket trumpet for over 5mins!! How does he do that!? His rhythem and tones were infectious to the point people jumping up to dance, and join in! The band really rocked it, too!! His songs about personal stories like remembering his grandfather, Chester, brought me to tears, while the smooth jazz sounds touched all. He is not wanting to do just jazz and played from many genre. Loved all of it and of course got one of his CD's. I highly recommend listening to his newest songs on itunes. I enjoyed his New Orleans jazz deput album, and got "Meet me on Frenchmen Street". Enjoy!
