A fellow Tom Harrell fan, great trumpet player and friend Jamie Beiwick shared this interview clip on his facebook page.  Tom is not only one of the greatest jazz trumpet players of all time (imho) but also a very deep thinking, spiritually sensitive person.  This is a great interview clip mixing commentary with playing.  I am especially blown away by Tom’s solo on Green Dolphin Street.  (about 3:20 minutes in)
