Bernie Glow: Lead Trumpet Extraordinaire
I didn’t have the chops to be a trumpet player, but my futile youthful attempts to master the instrument did teach me to respect lead trumpeters. Back then, one memorably named trumpeter kept appearing on records I picked: Bernie Glow (1926-1982). Thanks to this 1969 article from the New Yorker by William Whitworth (revived by Bret Primack), I now know who Bernie Glow is. So should you.
