|Adam Meckler isn’t just a trumpet player. He’s a writer, an arranger, a curator, a podcaster, an educator, and more. He came down from Michigan’s upper peninsula to get his Twin Cities-based orchestra back together for a show at Crooners on Friday (Aug. 4).
In the conversation, Meckler and Jazz88’s Sean McPherson discuss Meckler’s approach to big band writing, his love of re-using material, and his dedication to sharing tricks of the trade with the next generation of musicians.
