New Musical Project; World Jazz Collective

My latest project, World Jazz Collective is a diverse band performing music that exemplifies the influence of jazz across the world. We are in early stages and so far there is Romanian and Balkan music influences (because I come from Romania), but I hope soon we will include more diverse music.
Here is what we recorded so far:

"Thracian Dance" composed and arranged by me:


and "Balkano" composed by Sorin Mustățea. Band arrangement based on an arrangement by Gheorghe Brănici. I recommend checking out his arrangements and transcriptions, he put them for free here:

Cheers and hope you'll enjoy the music.

Still alive

Hi there
Has been quite a while since I didn't post here. That's because quite a lot happened in my life and I have a lot of other activities (teaching, making trumpet tutorials, having concerts...etc).
I plan making a brass pack, since I bought 2 marching trombones, 2 new trumpets and a piccolo trumpet as well, but that will take quite a while.

Meanwhile, Merry Christmas and here are some videos with me, to boost your Christmas spirit ☺

Carol of the Bells


... and if you're into Star Wars, here, spoiler alert; Darth Vader plays the tambourine

Vader Bells - Imperial Christmas


Joy to the World


Cheers and Happy Holidays!
