Jack Purvis - Rare Trumpet Solos

These two recordings ('Copyin' Louis' and 'Mental Strain at Dawn'), featured back to back in the one YouTube clip, are legendary trumpeter Jack Purvis' best recorded work. In them, Purvis exhibits fascinating phrasing and a glorious 'snappy' sound.

Like so many YouTube clips from Atticus70, the historic photos interact wonderfully with the music to bring back the atmosphere of a past era.
