Mac Gollehon

Trumpet Player Mac Gollehon of New York was born and raised in North Carolina and began playing guitar in blues and what was then called "uptown country bands" four nights a week at age 10. At around that same time his father Joe Gollehon, a trumpet player with natural ability and tone quality much like Billy Butterfield, started him on the trumpet. At the same time he taught Mac on trombone, euphonium, French horn and a few years later tuba. Mac's dad would always stress focus of tone center and not to over blow past pitch center. Around age 13, Mac played the circus and the band-leader Merle Evans had returned from retirement briefly

Mac Gollehon: Mac Gollehon & The Hispanic Mechanics

Read "Mac Gollehon & The Hispanic Mechanics" reviewed by Paul Naser

It's not often you hear of Miles Davis complementing trumpet players, but apparently prolific studio player Mac Gollehon was one of the rare exceptions. Nicknamed “chops" by the jazz icon (according to myth anyway), Gollehon has a very impressive resume; arranging and playing lead trumpet on over 500 gold/platinum records, he worked with big names like ...

Mac Gollehon: Oddissey of Nostalgia

Read "Oddissey of Nostalgia" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Ecco un CD che, a un primo ascolto, potrebbe essere facilmente trascurato: un programma di classici del jazz, riproposti in modo apparentemente privo di particolarità - né filologici, né rivoluzionari - da musicisti non di primo piano (vi svetta, e un po' sorprende la sua presenza, Amina Claudine Myers), coronato da un titolo (offerto dall'unica composizione ...

Ogni tanto si scoprono artisti che, per l'altissimo livello professionale raggiunto, passano buona parte della loro esistenza fra studi e tour, non facendosi notare in ambito jazzistico. Quando trovano il tempo e il sostegno per realizzare un lavoro personale, spesso sorprendono per maturità e competenza. Mac Gollehon è uno di questi e Straight Ahead è uno ...

Mac Gollehon's "Straight Ahead" Virtual Big Band

Mac Gollehon's "Straight Ahead" Virtual Big Band

Trumpeter-trombonist-arranger Mac Gollehon has done something that is far from easy to pull off. He's created big band charts and then realized all the trumpet and trombone parts by overdubbing (except for the bass trombone, which is in the capable hands of Sam Burtis). He's then fleshed out the rest of the group with some notably ...

Mac Gollehon: Mac Straight Ahead

Read "Mac Straight Ahead" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Brass man Mac Gollehon means business on Mac Straight Ahead. The ten tracks on this album present Gollehon in a variety of settings and on a variety of the same time. While the idea of overdubbing oneself on record is fraught with peril, Gollehon beats the odds. Sometimes he conjures sounds of a full, brassy ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
