Rick Braun: Around The Horn. Braun is thoroughly professional and a polished trumpet player, but he’s more in the vein of Mangione than Davis and that’s fine because there’s room for the mainstream as well as the trend setters. Braun is not going to go off on a ten-minute free-form solo blowing, bleating and squawking his brains out.
Rick Braun. February 24, 2017 Shanachie Entertainment will release Rick Braun’s 17th recording as a leader, Around The Horn. The dynamic trumpeter’s label debut is an adventurous mix of originals as well as exhilarating reinventions of hits by Coldplay, Alicia Keys and Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez.
Trumpet player Rick Braun is one of the most popular musicians of the smooth jazz genre. After his previous escapades to Holiday Jazz (Swingin’ In The Snow) and Swing (Sings With Strings) he returned to smooth jazz with Can You Feel It. Around The Horn (2017) holds the horns tighter than tight.
Around The Horn highlights Braun’s ultra hip and beautiful reworking of Coldplay’s “Yellow,” a vibey re-imaging of Alicia Keys’ “In Common.” Here is Rick Braun 1st single from Around The Horn, the Charlie Puth/Selena Gomez hit collaboration, “We Don’t Talk Anymore.”
