“A powerful trumpeter, at ease with the most complicated and detailed bebop lines and an open-armed [Louis] Armstrong swagger.”— The New York Times
A spectacular trumpeter with a wide range, a beautiful tone, and the ability to blend together many influences into his own style, Byron Stripling is an extroverted performer who brings the audience into his music. The happiness that he exudes through his trumpet, his vocals, and his words is reminiscent of Louis Armstrong, yet very much his own.
style: straight-ahead/vocal jazz
