"I highly recommend this important collection of articles, interviews, and master class transcriptions to brass performers, students, and teachers of all styles! Top Brass ... gives its readers insight into a world often unexplored in today's music industry, that of the serious jazz artist. ... The artistic integrity of each artist as well as their heartfelt dedication comes through loud-and-clear in each and every dialogue. ... Top Brass is required reading."
-- Steve Wiest, The International Trombone Association Journal
