Hugh Masekela with the Dave Matthews Band

Hugh Masekela is probably the most famous South African jazz trumpeter. Here he is performing with the Dave Matthews Band.

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.
