From the venue:Lew Soloff, noted jazz trumpet soloist and session musician, will perform at The Velvet Note in Alpharetta on October 19-20, 2013. A brilliant high-note trumpeter long in great demand for big bands and session work, Mr. Soloff is also a distinctive soloist and an expert with the plunger mute. After studying at Juilliard, he free-lanced in New York with Maynard Ferguson, Joe Henderson, and Clark Terry, among others, and then was a part of Blood, Sweat & Tears during 1968-1973 (he is probably best-known for the trumpet solo on their hit, â€œSpinning Wheelâ€).
