15+ Years Experience as New York City-Based Performing/Recording Artist • International Trumpet Competition Winner • Trumpeter for GRAMMY-Winning Artists • Fresh Sound Records Recording Artist • 3 Degrees in Trumpet Performance • National and International Touring Experience • Specializes in Solo and Lead Trumpet Styles • Quick Turnaround Time

I've been playing trumpet and flugelhorn for almost 25 years (professionally for the past 17) while based out of New York City. I've performed in nearly 1,000 concerts, recorded on 30 studio albums, dozens of singles/EPs, and have appeared on 200+ music videos. I've also received over 30 internationally competitive musical awards, including 7 specifically for trumpet playing.

I've been a part of national tours and international concerts held in places like Malaysia, France, Haiti, Canada and throughout the Caribbean, and have worked for acclaimed/Grammy-winning artists such as Brass Against, Eric Bergin, the Maria Schneider Jazz Orchestra, the Mingus Big Band, the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra, the Birdland Big Band, Darcy James Argue's Secret Society and Orrin Evans' Captain Black Big Band to name only a few.

I record from home using a setup which features a MacBook Pro, Logic Pro X, a Beyerdynamic M160 ribbon microphone and an Audient ID-4 interface. I have recorded dozens of trumpet and flugelhorn parts onto professional tracks (including the one featured on my profile), using this setup.

Here are some other tracks I've recorded on (from home):

    Amazing player to work with, fast delivery.

  3. Review by Kevin P. Hawley

    Incredible player, he just nailed the parts and you could feel it, he doesn't just provides notes, he gives your music personality that shines! Will use him again, look no further, Jonathan will give you what you need and he even met a deadline for me too! :-)
