scott wendholt


I have been a huge fan of Scott Wendholt since the first time I heard him play over 25 years ago. I’m extremely fortunate to have sat in front of him on countless gigs and recording sessions with the great Bob Mintzer Big Band and experience his virtuosity firsthand. I’m honored that he was generous enough to lend his exceptional talents to my Brass Nation and Trumpets Eleven CDs and am thrilled to have had the opportunity to sit down with him for this interview.
