Second Trumpet Andy Classen plays 4 trumpets, 2 cornets, 2 mellophones, 2 flugels, 1 bass flugel, and 3 bass trumpets in his largest multi-instrument video yet! The Channel One Suite, written by Bill Reddie for the Buddy Rich Big Band, is one of Andy's favorite pieces for jazz ensemble. Andy says this took him over a month to put together! The video also features Steve Charlson on bass and Mark Grimm on drums. Enjoy!
