A consummate fixture on the New York jazz scene, trumpeter Lew Soloff’s career is filled with a rich history of renowned sessions and world-class collaborations. Soloff is known as a virtuoso with tremendous range and superior technical command, yet he exudes a wisdom for quietness and melody. Soloff’s expertise includes trumpet, flugelhorn, harmon mute, plunger mute and he is particularly recognized for his work on piccolo trumpet. This classically trained jazz player’s diverse background has allowed him to perform with the likes of some Tony Bennett, Elvis Costello, Frank Sinatra, as well as Blues legends John Mayall and Dr. John.
