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).

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
