Sign in to view read count
Trumpeter Tim Hagans, it appears at times, can almost fly under the radar. His splendid playing has been heard in a variety of contexts over the years, always creative, expressive, expansive. Maria Schneider expresses glee when he'sable to be a part of her orchestra and help interpret her musical creations. He's been part of the Stan Kenton organization and played alongside the wonderful Thad Jones. He brings a bright, buoyant style to every occasion.

Hagans' latest release is the continuation of his relationship with Sweden's The Norrbotten Big Band. The Avatar Sessions (Fuzzy Music, 2010) is a set of new charts by Hagans, and features a stellar line-up of guests, including drummer Peter Erskine, saxophonists Dave Liebman andGeorge Garzone, trumpeter Randy Brecker and bassist Rufus Reid. Veteran AAJ Contributor R.J. DeLuke spoke with Hagans about The Avatar Sessions, touring the music of The Rolling Stones with saxophonist {Tim Ries}}, and wanting to be the Jeff Beck of the trumpet.
