On July 14, 2016 the Disneyland Resort 2016 All-American College Band was joined by guest clinician Rex Richardson. This fantastic trumpet player is a member of the chamber ensemble Rhythm & Brass, jazz legend Joe Henderson’s Quintet and Sextet, William Russo’s Chicago Jazz Ensemble, and the Brass Band of Battle Creek.

Viewed as one of the finest trumpet players in the world, Richardson brought his skills to share with the band and to perform for guests at the Hollywood Backlot Stage in Disney California Adventure.

For this performance Rex Richardson didn’t just bring his trumpet playing skills, he also brought his soprano trombone. Not seen too often, it added another different fun element to the performance.
