Mike's F11 pick #4

Ranking: 
4
Event Pick: 
Excerpt Body: 

This guy is a beautiful trumpeter and always has great bands, in the true ECM tradition. But the main reason not to miss him this year is that he's got the incredible Craig Taborn on piano. Perhaps you've seen Craig in Chris Potter's band -- he is just awesome and has been recognized as a Rising Star in the latest DownBeat Critics Poll.
