"Larry Hall's trumpet playing is only surpassed by his class and humility"
"One of the most inspiring people out here. The coolest."
"On my first day at I.U. I went to the music school
to see the building and just "check it out". As I went to the third
floor near Bill Adam's studio I heard something I had never heard
before - the sound of three glorious trumpet players practicing their
warm-up routines together. I went into the room and introduced myself.
"Bart Marantz from Miami, Florida," I said. "Oh, hi, I'm Charlie
Davis", "I'm Larry Hall" and "I'm Jerry Hey" were the replies. If you
know about trumpets and trumpet playing, then you know that these
musicians have become the leaders on the instrument in today's music
industry... On my first day at I.U. I had heard what were to
become the leaders of trumpet playing for the studios of Los Angeles in
the future. I was floored and went back to my apartment with a new
sense of what the trumpet could sound like and a new determination to
improve my own playing abilities."
