If you need to relax for a few minutes, listen to this…music is magical!
After learning the story behind this beautiful piece, I just had to search for Mr Cowell’s version because the sound of a trumpet is special to me. My 90-year old father no longer plays his horn (he lives in an Alzheimer’s facility), but he is an amazingly talented musician.
Here’s a link to the the original composer, Johnny Cowell, playing the tune. No matter who is actually blowin’ the horn, I like to close my eyes as I listen to any trumpet music, and “see” my dad playing it..although it’s bittersweet for me, every time.
