John Barclay

I played a gig at Westminster Abbey with London Brass. I knew John Barclay would be playing so I took along my SmithWatkins trumpet to see what he thought of it. He liked it. It’s a good setup. 

He couldn’t have been more encouraging. This is what he said:

“If you do another year on that [practicing the trumpet] you’ll be as good [at jazz] as anyone”.

That’s so nice of him, even though it is wildly inaccurate.
