Can I guess the trumpeter who solos on "Cheek To Cheek"? It's the wonderful Don Fagerquist!

Walter Norris

An excellent interview with a unique altoist; Herb Geller's horn was never in it's case except to journey to the next gig or session. There are no musicians more dedicated than Herb;his thumb print becomes illuminated in his tone; his timing has an animalistic quality.
