Mark Rapp Stretches Boundaries
(Published: November 13, 2007)
Jazz writer Joe Montague takes time to interview emerging jazz artist Mark Rapp for JazzPolice.com. Montague writes, "Perhaps more than anyone else among today's trumpeters, Rapp is breaking down the age-old paradigms as to how the trumpet ought to be played in a jazz environment."
Mark Rapp is a young talented trumpet player raised in SC, trained in New Orleans and lives in NYC. Choosen as a "Top Emerging Jazz Trumpeter" by jazz magazine "DownBeat Magazine" and having recently performed with Branford Marsalis at the Southern Exposure Festival, Rapp is gaining a lot of attention fast. Mark's debut record will be mastered by Senior Mastering Engineer Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound. It's produced by Grammy Award winner Jason Olaine and mixed by hip-hop engineer (The Roots, Beyonce) Robert "LB" Dorsey. There is already quite a team behind this record and Rapp says, "It's an honor to have their support. However, it's the music that matters and I can't wait to share it with you."
