Trumpeter Philip Dizack (named by Downbeat Magazine as "[one of twenty-five] Trumpet Players for the Future") on how he thinks about playing, teaching ("preparing for teaching is the most helpful thing that I've ever done for myself"), practicing ("the more specific your questions are, the more specific your answers will become"), potential ("I hear so far beyond what I'm capable of doing right now"), and perspective ("if our perspective is right then we're always in complete humility").

Plus, Dizack discusses some of his favorite contemporary musicians today, including Joel Ross, Immanuel Wilkins, Sullivan Fortner, Walter Smith III, and Shai Maestro (with whom he had just started playing shortly before the Covid shutdown).
