    John is an extremely talented and professional musician.
    He tracked down his trumpets the same day I asked for them with the highest quality.
    No doubt I'll be sure to ask for his services again in the future.

    It's invaluable to have a trumpet this good on your track.

    John Fumo is a brilliant musician. Professional, inspired and with the gift of elevating your track to a new level. It doesn't get better than this, really. Unless you resurrect Miles or Louis...Jaw-dropping playing!

    Just hit the road for the 2017 tour. I have all my recording gear with me and continue to record sessions from the road. I usually find an unused ballroom in our hotel that sounds great. My other horns guys are out here and I have access to anything you can imagine-gear wise.


  • Neil Diamond TourSep 15, 2015

    The ND tour wraps up in November 2015 and already filling up my home recording schedule.
