The year is 1997. Summer is coming to an end and Iam in Boston (a long way from my hometown of High Point, North Carolina) entering my first year at New England Conservatory of music. After a weekend of exploring the area surrounding NEC, I found myself walking down Massachusetts Avenue, passing the Berklee School of Music. As I pass Berklee, trumpet in hand, another trumpeter (which turned out to be Jeremy Pelt), approached me and asked if I was a new student at Berklee. I told him that I was beginning my studies at NEC. He then tells me to come with him to a jam sesión at Wally´s Jazz Café. Not knowing what I was getting myself into, I agreed.

(…)

After “sitting in” almost every weekend for three and half years, I was offered the opportunity to host the jazz jam sesión on Sunday´s. A year later, I was offered the trumpet chair in the house band that performs every Friday and Saturday evenings.

Era el año 1997. El verano se acaba y yo estoy en Boston (lejos de mi hogar en High Point, Carolina del Norte) empezando mi primer año en el conservatorio de música de New England. Después de semanas explorando los alrededores del conservatorio terminé caminando la Avenida Massachusetts, pasando por la Escuela de Música Berklee. Mientras pasaba por Berklee con la trompeta en la mano, otro trompetista (quien resultó ser Jeremy Pelt) se me acercó y me preguntó si yo era estudiante de Berklee. Le dije que estaba iniciando mis estudios en el conservatorio. Entonces me dijo que lo acompañara a una sesión de jam en el Jazz Café Wally’s. Sin saber en lo que me estaba metiendo, dije que sí.

(…)

Después de haberme sentado casi todos los fines de semana durante tres años y medio, me ofrecieron la oportunidad de presentar la sesión de jazz jam los domingos. Un año más tarde me ofrecieron la silla del trompetista en la banda local que tocaba cada noche de viernes y sábado.
