The 10 Minute Trumpet Jams project started as a self-challenge, an experiment to see how I could find the time to practice and record during my busy days touring, parenting, and networking. Equipped with my Macbook Pro and Logic Pro recording software and with my challenge in mind, I was able to carve out 10 minutes of the day to record wherever I was. Sometimes, I was at home with my family; other times, I was on the road touring with Jill Scott or Bootsy Collins. But wherever I was, I made space for 10 minutes of creativity and focus. In that 10 minutes, I recorded as much music and as many ideas as I could (solos, hand percussion, beat boxing, singing, and more). I then came back to each recording later, when I had fresh ears, to edit everything I had created into a song. Invigorated and inspired by the process, the experiment grew into a full-length project that I am now releasing. My hope is that those who hear it will be inspired to do the same kind of focused project with their art, in whatever form it takes.
