After graduating high school, Roger toured with Quincy Jones and then with Connie Stevens. At age 18, Roger played with Tom Jones on the Vegas Strip. He later toured and recorded with Woody Herman, Maynard Ferguson and Arturo Sandoval. Roger moved to New York to play and record with Harry Connick, Jr. S band for several years.
Along the way he also played with Frank Sinatra, Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, as well as a stack of Broadway musicals. Roger later toured with Ray Charles, Paul Anka and others. I think the first time I ever saw Roger play was in 1985 with Woody Herman's band at Disneyland; then 1988 on Maynard's first High Voltage tour, which included Wayne Bergeron and Pete Olstad! Since then I've seen him with Ray Charles on an early date with my now-wife!
, Harry, and with Gerald Wilson's orchestra. He discreetly sat in with my pal Mark Hix's band here in the LA area, and I got to hear him play jazz and work as a section player NOT playing lead! In an intimate setting at a local club.I see him at trade shows, of course, but it's hard to get in a word with him at ITG or Midwest, just because he's so popular in the trumpet community! The mouthpiece in this listing. Inner diameter: 0.619 / 15.72 mm. This was originally going to be included in the ambitious but short-lived Calicchio Artist Series.
This particular mouthpiece is on a sexy retro-style blank. There are other Ingram mouthpieces in the marketplace but this is a Kanstul-made copy of Roger's own mouthpiece pre-dates the ones made by Pickett. Kanstul Musical Instruments was a pioneer in single-point scanning and mouthpiece duplication. Before the factory was shuttered in 2019, players from around the world trusted Kanstul for their accuracy in duplicating the most valuable and unique mouthpieces, as well as extremely consistent production mouthpieces.
