Malay Tone Poem

Mark Armstrong is one of the leading jazz/latin trumpet players in the UK; in addition to a fiendishly busy gig/touring schedule, he finds time to be Professor of Trumpet at the Royal College of Music and Music Director of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra - neither of which is terribly surprising when you hear him play. 

As a jazz musician, he was a regular player with the late great Stan Tracey, and has also been featured soloist in Clarke Tracey's quartet over the years. Mark is also a fixture in the leading big bands in the country, the BBC Big Band and the London Jazz Orchestra, and when the mood takes him, he turns his hand to salsa - he works regularly with Robin Jones' King Salsa and Cubana Bop, two of the leading salsa groups in the UK at the moment. 

Check out his superb solo on 'Round Midnight' at the Proms a couple of seasons back - a really thrilling trumpeter.
