Brass Chats Episode 24: Tom Hooten

Tom Hooten Trumpet Brass Chats.jpg

Adding handsomely to our stockpile of famously accomplished and otherworldly-good trumpet players in our Brass Chats Interview collection, this month we snared Tom Hooten, who sits in the principal trumpet chair for the Los Angeles Philharmonic. We were super lucky that he had time and energy for us (boy did he!) as the LA Phil swung through New York; the result was one of the most information-rich interviews we've done so far. From warming up and routine to excerpts and chops and beyond, Hooten spills it, and we all get to collect it—thanks to another worthy installment of Brass Chats. Enjoy!
