Tim Hagans

The arts make people smarter!

How better to celebrate the holidays and close out 2015 than a stimulating conversation with one of the most inventive, creative and dynamic trumpeters of any generation, the transcendent Tim Hagans. Tim sits down with Michael for an open conversation on anything and everything, including his tenure with the Stan Kenton Orchestra, touring and recording with the likes of Dexter Gordon, Thad Jones, Joe Lovano and Bob Belden, his love of the Cincinnati Reds and disdain for the designated hitter, his 15 years as artistic director of the Norrbotten Big Band, his work with the Michele Brangwen Dance Ensemble, his legendary approach to chromatic improvisation and his thoughts on the American political system. Enjoy!
