Splendor in the Brass

Trumpeter Jim Manley reaches into the past on his latest CD release for the Victoria Company label, entitled "Splendor in the Brass." Fronting a 12-piece big band, Jim toys with jazz standards using a 60's flavor. Backed by St. Louis'finest musicians, Jim's trumpet soars, pops, sizzles and purrs through these exciting arrangements.
