Rex Richardson. Master of the trumpet in every style. International soloist. Yamaha performing artist. Holder of a degree from Northwestern....in Anthropology (?!?!). How often do you get to hear such an accomplished human being speak frankly about his path? His successes? His luck? His struggles? His foibles? His analogies to his former self as, and this is not an April Fools' joke, "Chet Baker with a brain tumor?"
...I mean, this is Brass Chats—so you know that all of these things are what we're all about here. But that doesn't make Rex's Ruminations any less interesting or valuable! You'll see Rex speak with great enthusiasm and childlike glee about his former teachers, trumpet and jazz idols, and many other things.
Rex is the man, and that's really all you need to know. Thanks Rex!! Enjoy, everybody!
