Jim Rotondi

To hear Clifford Brown two years after you start playing the trumpet in Montana was pretty eye opening . . . to say the least!

We are thrilled to round out our 2019 bone2pick season featuring one of the most acclaimed and in-demand trumpet players on the international jazz scene, the great Jim Rotondi. We caught up with Jim a few weeks back when he was in New York playing at Dizzy’s. He was gracious enough to sit down with us and discuss his very musical upbringing in Montana, the formative North Texas years, the early days of being in New York and landing his first major gig with Ray Charles, forging his successful solo career, co-founding the super group One For All and making the move to Graz, Austria to become professor of jazz trumpet at the University of Music & Dramatic Arts. A wonderful way to cap off the holiday season. Enjoy!
