This is Barrie Lee Hall, someone I considered a friend and a mentor. He passed away a few years ago, and he is missed by those he left here to take up the torch and pass it on to the next generation.
Eddie Lewis posts these videos as listening assignments to his students. He often tells the students that “listening is more important than practicing”. To that end, he shares the videos so the students have something to inspire them to listen more often to professional trumpet players.
That said, if you are not one of Mr. Lewis’ students, we welcome you, too. The more the merrier! Welcome to EddieLewis.com. Feel free to post your comments and questions below.
