Robinson has just finished his second full length
CD for trumpet and pipe organ, now available at
CD Baby and KGRMUSIC.COM. Check out
the clips on Ken's Music Page. The CD
features several special guests. These guests include
Arturo Sandoval, Adolph Herseth, Charles Schlueter,
Patrick Hession, Walter White, Randall Hawes, John
Rutherford, Michael McGowan, Brian Moon, John
Davidson and Luis Rusto all accompanied with the
incredible virtuosity of Dr. Dave Wagner on the pipe
organ. The CD was recorded in the beautiful acoustics
of the Blessed Sacrement Cathedral in Detroit,
Michigan. The CD has a beautiful musical tribute, in
the classical style, from alumni and friends to
Maynard Ferguson based on the melody, "Caruso," by
Lucio Dalla and features all of these wonderful
musicians. It is titled, "Farewell Maynard." Patrick
plays trumpet 5, 1st & 2nd solos at beginning and
"spirit of Maynard" (high notes) just before the end.
Patrick also plays trumpet 2 on the Sonata "Sancti
Polycarpi" for 8 trumpets, timpani, 2 trombones &
organ by Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber.

Toledo Jazz Orchestra's Tribute to Maynard
January 13th, 2008 11:16
This doesn't have a lot to do with running, but I
went to the Toledo Jazz Orchestra's Tribute to
Maynard Ferguson featuring Patrick Hession and Ric
Wolkins with my pals from CrossRoads Community
Church's worship band brass, Jeremy, Leo, and Vicki.
It was phenomenal! Brought back a lot of memories of
high school when we listened to the album Chameleon
perpetually, the Interlochen concert, and camping
road trips with Mom and Dad and Vicky listening to
the album, Carnival, over and over and over again.
The screaming trumpets last night courtesy of Mr.
Hession and Mr. Wolkins definitely jacked me up for
today's race so, I guess this does have a bit to do
with running. My trumpeting pal, Leo, has run 6
marathons in his now ended running career including
the Toledo, Columbus, and Boston. I've been gleaning
some tips from him. My other band-pal, Vicki, is also
a marathoner having done one in her college days.
Dad, wish you coulda gone to the concert with us, you
would have loved it!
