This past weekend has been a whirlwind of music events, and I had the pleasure of seeing and sitting in with several great artists. The first event was a performance by Incendio where I had the chance to sit in on a few songs, you can read the review on Teen Jazz. Lin Rountree’s performance with U-Nam was the following night, and although vastly different from the music of Incendio, it was just as exciting.
Lin Rountree is an accomplished trumpet player who performs in the smooth jazz and soul/R&B styles. He began playing the trumpet at the age of 11 and since has led a successful career with four solo projects. He endorses Wisemann trumpets and flugel horns.
The concert featured the music of Lin Rountree and U-Nam, the two main artists, and consisted of two sets. The band was outstanding, the artists had the audience on their feet and even those on the other side of the restaurant snuck into the bar to see what all the excitement was about. It was a fantastic performance and it was amazing to see these two great artists perform together.
