Greatest Hits – James Watson, Trumpet

A stunning new CD produced in memory of the great James Watson who died suddenly in February 2011 at just 59. James was one of the worlds leading trumpet players, musicians and educators. He was the ultimate lyrical trumpet player. This CD is a collection of his finest recordings. It is a representation of his greatest hits as HE saw them.
Following an historic concert in June 2011 featuring some of the worlds finest brass players – a fund has been established in James’ name. The James Watson Fund for Brass players is a truly flexible fund aiming to help brass musicians through their studies and in other times of need in these hard economic times. All profits from this disc go to the fund.
