  1. Review by Aaron A.

    It was a great experience to work with Bruno. A pro's pro who works quickly and interprets the music wonderfully. On top of that a first rate and creative jazz improviser.

  2. Review by Aaron A.

    I couldn’t ask for a better musician to play my music. Bruno interpreted the charts the way I wanted with no explanations needed and with great solos. I am sending him more music to record and will have to write more parts being that he did such a fantastic job.

  9. Review by Jake Bonham

    Bruno was perfect! He went above and beyond for my project, providing options for me and little extras too. His trumpet performance is spot on and he even delivered ahead of schedule. I couldn't be happier with the results.

  10. Review by todd s.

    Great player- lots of style and feel, plus plenty of chops. If you give him freedom, he knows how to make your music better. Also nice recording of the instrument. Can't wait to work with him again.

  11. Review by todd s.

    The second piece we've had Bruno play on was very different from the first- but he added so much. His playing is lively, creative and fun. Just what we needed!

  13. Review by todd s.

    Great feel, nice tone and recording, too. Turnaround was super fast and he was a pleasure to work with. His trumpet MADE the track!

    I gave him a lot of freedom- and he knew what to do with it.
