Last year, a student of mine lent me a CD of a trumpet player who I had never heard of before. I am eager to learn about new players and Tony Guerrero is an excellent jazz musician and trumpet player. Thanks John for turning me on to Mr. Guerrero.
I listened to the recording on the way back and forth from gigs and I enjoyed it so much that I hopped online to read more about him. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Mr. Guerrero is also a Christian. Wonderful!
When I first saw his name, I wondered if there was any relationship to the Tony “Ham” Guerrero from Austin, TX of Tortilla Factory fame. I worked with that Tony Guerrero in the salsa band that brought him back out of retirement and thought maybe there was a connection there. But as far as I can tell there is no relationship.
