It's Trumpet Time with the Festival of New Trumpet at Vision Festival 16

Published:
Ted Daniel Festival of New Trumpet makes its contribution to Vision Festival 16 and offers a detailed interview with Ted Daniel including this summary below.

FONT: What is your relationship to King Oliver's playing?

TD: King Oliver's improvisations were blues based, rhythmically intricate and his sound, which he constantly worked on, was highly personal and original. He was not conservatory- trained and his style and technique were a response of his own musical vision and influenced by his environment. I am also not conservatory-trained and am largely self-taught. I consider myself a blues-based player (not a blues player) with an original sound. The positive aspect of being self- taught is that it often leads to originality in style and technique. Having worked primarily in the “free jazz" or “avant-garde" genre, I have always felt that the collective improvisation aspect of the music was a continuation of what took place at the beginning of the music. King Oliver was one of the main architects of collective improvisation, which at that time was the “avant-garde" of music being created in America. I like to think of my musical efforts as part of this continuum, which is moving the music forward."
