Influence: Charles “Buddy” Bolden

Just imagining the majesty of Buddy’s sound has inspired me to play with a fuller sound as often as I could, especially when the room and the situation calls for it. I’ve heard stories (some label as heresay) about Buddy having the ability to play the trumpet at such a volume that one could hear him playing across the Mississippi River as well as his improvisational prowess.
