I currently have a google document list... that is 3 pages long and growing... this list is simply titled... "clients to watch"... when people ask me what I do I sometimes say... "everything" but essentially... I like to think that I am sort of the go-between person here. I keep my eyes and ears on the music. I watch our clients carry our instruments around the world. We just ran an ad in downbeat magazine... one of our clients... Kermit Ruffins... is featured in this issue and Downbeat contacted us... asking if we'd like to run a print ad... in our company history... this is only the second print ad we have ever run. The other was in an issue of The Brass Herald. Simply put... our trumpets... and our clients... advertise for us. So, my favorite thing about my job... is that I get to watch our horns travel around the globe... many times I am lucky enough to attend these gigs... and watch our instruments in action... but often times I get photographs... and when I am lucky recordings. I have a stack of client cds on my desk right now that I going to be reviewing in the coming weeks.
Well... near the top of the "clients to watch" list is Jake Baldwin... and tonight Jake is playing at The Artistis'Quarter: 408 St. Peter Street, St. Paul 651-292-1359 at 9pm
A new group of old friends and

Here's a great write up by jazzpolice about Jake and his upcoming gig at The Dakota! on teh 19th as well!
And, as a footnote... I do my best to watch all of you from afar... students... teachers and performers alike... but I can't keep track of everyone all day every day... if you're out there... working... playing... learning... and you have a photo, a story or an album to share... please send it my way... it really is what I love most about this business... for me it really is all about you... and your music. Keep up the good work: firstname.lastname@example.org
