Format: Audio CD
Philip Smith is the brilliant Principal Trumpet of the New York Philharmonic. He is featured here in a eclectic recital disc with the fabulous accompanist-composer Joseph Turrin and several guest trumpeters. Three works for trumpet ensemble appear on the disc - two contemporary fanfares (Broughton, Turrin) and a clever "jam" on "There's a Great Day Coming" in which several highly respected "legit" trumpeters scream and wail on jazz solos. It is a pleasure to see works by Turrin on the disc. He has written several works for Smith including the energetic "Intrada" heard here. Two "pieces de conservatiore" - the works of Enesco and Tomasi - receive spotless reads by the virtuoso. The unabashed lyricism of Philip Smith's trumpet is clearly defined in a set of three songs in beautiful arrangements. The highlight of this collection is easily Eric Ewazen's Trio for Trumpet Violin and Piano. It is here where Smith shines the brightest. This work deserves wide recognition for its sheer beauty and majesty. A fabulous disc by an extraordinary musician!

This is superb trumpet playing in solo and ensemble settings. I've never heard the Enesco "Legende" played better. Smith has a long history as a cornet and trumpet soloist with Salvation Army bands. He can sound alternately brilliant and mellow, stident and serene. This disc has changed my trumpet playing for the better and given me lots of enjoyment. Smith takes a simple song like "Amazing Grace" and makes something truly memorable of it. Truly gorgeous tone production and phrasing.
Kudos also go to Joseph Turrin for his excellent accompaniment. His compositions are first-rate too, especially the first of his "Two Portraits."
If you are to buy only one trumpet recital disc, make this the one.

This is an eclectic assortment of music played by a true master of the instrument. This is a must own for true students of the instrument, giving exemplary performances of all pieces on the album. When Phil Smith retires from the NY Philharmonic he will be leaving behind a black hole which will be impossible to fill. I am glad he has recorded this CD to leave his playing resounding in our ears. This is a wonderful album in every sense.

This CD has quickly become one of my favorite trumpet CD's. Philip Smith is sensational. I particularly enjoyed the Enescu and the Ewazen. I heard the Ewazen on Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) and quickly called to find out where I could purchase the CD.

This is a wonderful recording. This is required listening for any trumpet student or trumpet aficionado. Smith is one of the best- if not the best - orchestral trumpet players in the world (principal trumpet NY Philharmonic). He brings a unique artistic sensitivity as a "former" Salvation Army band trumpet player that illuminates memorable passages such as Jim Curnow's arrangement of "Amazing Grace". For me the highlight is the Ewazen "Trio". I have been very lucky to have performed both the Curnow arrangement and the Ewazen, and my inspiration was this recording. I have misplaced my CD and feel an obligation to post this small inarticulate expression of my love of this CD as I buy a new copy.

The sonics are excellent. So many times that is not true for trumpet recordings but this has fine natural acoustics without compression or distortion.
