Trumpet Solo, on the Ride to Brooklyn

Trumpet Player, nyc
Photo by myself, on the subway ride home.

A man played the trumpet for donations, the other night. On a strap hung a boombox that played background music.

As you can see, it hasn't been super duper cold here. Usually January is frigid. Temps have been fluctuating in the high 40s and low 50s (!).

Happy Monday, everyone!

You must have a real firm stand to play a trumpet in the underground as I see how al the other people keep a grip to hold on. I hope he sounded not to loud. That can be a disappointing part of playing in the subway.

Yes, it was a bit loud. And unfortunately...he was not terribly good. But people were okay with his playing, nonetheless!
