                              Hi Folks,

                              First, a very happy belated birthday to my dear native country of Canada which celebrates on July 1st. I'm thinking about you! I will see you in September... see you when the summer's through. 

                              I'm totally humbled and thrilled to be included in DOWNBEAT Magazine's 61st Annual Critics Poll as a "Rising Star" on trumpet. Holy smokes! The rest of the people on the list are friends and people I admire greatly. It's an honour to be included and gives me more motivation to practice.  You can see the full list digital edition here : http://www.downbeat.com/digitaledition/2013/DB201308/single_page_view/60.html
                              The paper copies hit stands on July 16th. 

                                               Let's make some music!

                              I can't think of a better place to celebrate the good news and America's Birthday on July the 4th than at Louis Armstrong's own house! Yes, Pops is opening up his back yard to host a party with Red beans, WHITE rice and BLUE notes. Count me in! Band will include the ever festive Dalton Ridenhour on piano, Adrian Cunningham on reeds, Darrian Douglas on drums and Jared Engel on bass.

                              Marty is one of three remaining members of Louis Armstrong's All Stars and one helluva piano player. We'll also have THE Bill Crow on bass (for you Jazz Anecdotes fans) and Ray Mosca on drums.
