I have always wanted to mentor a talented young musician. In 2009, I came in touch with young trumpet player Christian Wayman and his parents Vicki and Cliff.
I've had the pleasure of having Christian play trumpet in my 17 piece jazz big band, and I must say that he his one hell of a reader despite his young age of 14.
My prediction is that young Christian will propel himself into the music world with verve and panache.

George is a journeyman jazz musician having performed with sundry symphony USA-based symphonies, as well as his standing room stint at the famed jazz club......The Iridium in New York City whose club features the best in live jazz. His recent collaboration with New York city crooner Bob Stewart allowed George the honor to have cameos with the likes of the great jazz pianist Hank Jones, (RIP), and sax colossus Frank Wess. George's focus nowadays is to tap into the jazz and pop music booking idiom, i.e. jazz and pop music promoters, jazz festivals, jazz booking agencies, management producers, etc) with his world class big band and jazz quintet in the USA, Asia, and European jazz music markets.
This will hopefully allow George to perform in concert in these aforementioned markets. In a word, George is ''open". George would like to bring his jazz and vocal talents to such global and European jazz venues such as Ronnie Scott's in London and Amsterdam's Bimhaus in the Netherlands plus other jazz markets around the world in Asia and Europe.
Legendary jazz singer Mark Murphy has proclaimed George as ''a fine player and singer.'' Murphy also offers ''I enjoyed George's performance on the standards from the American Songbook.'' George's world class big band adheres to the standard instrumental format: 5-saxes, 4-trombones, 4-trumpets, piano, bass, and drums. George has always been inspired by the great big band leader and visionary Thad Jones and fashions his band in that vernacular. So, George invites music promoters, music producers, jazz festival promoters, music entertainment agencies, booking agents, et al to come into his musical stable.
