This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

Albert Aarons (trumpet)

BRIEF BIOGRAPHY:

Great trumpet player, Albert Aarons (also known as Al Aarons) was born on March 23rd, 1932 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He started studying trumpet when he was 15, moving to Detroit in 1955.

He was in the Wild Bill Davis Group when he was spotted by Count Basie, who asked him to join his orchestra. Aarons stayed with Basie from 1961 to 1969. After that, Albert Aarons moved to LA, starting his work for TV.

Albert Aarons was one of the founders of the Legend record label, along with Buddy Collette and Red Callender.
