Read "Trumpet Summit: Jeremy Pelt, Brad Goode and Terell Stafford" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

The spirit of trumpeter Miles Davis remains very much a creative quasar furnishing a certain gravitational pull to a considerable population of bodies orbiting it. On the outer edges of this quasar's orbit are the (relatively) young trumpeters who emerged after the pedantic eclipse of Wynton Marsalis occurred.
