Scotty Barnhart is an acclaimed Jazz trumpeter, leader, composer, educator and author. He has put in over 20 years in the Count Basie Orchestra and is now its leader. He's in town this weekend playing Friday, August 26 and Saturday, August 27 at The Velvet Note in Alpharetta. The performances are themed A Tribute To Miles Davis, an event featuring Barnhart and his combo's interpretation of great mid-period Miles Davis songs.
Barnhart is a native Atlantan and a great guy. He stopped by Jazz 91.9 WCLK during Midday Jazz to talk with me about his performance and some of his many Jazz adventures. I hope you'll join me at the Velvet Note for some great Jazz!
