The Trumpet Wedding Cocktail Hour – Compiled by DJ Gregg Ambient

September 26, 2017 by Gregg Hollmann

The trumpet – whether muted or unmuted or in its flugelhorn variation – offers one of the coolest sounds in music.  In that spirit, we’ve compiled an all trumpet wedding cocktail hour featuring jazz greats like Miles Davis, Wynton Marsalis, Freddie Hubbard and Chet Baker; upcoming trumpet players like Wayne Tucker who we recently experienced at Duane Park in Manhattan; to 90s dance compositions like “Cool Like Dat” (Digable Planets) and “Flip Fantasia” (Us3) which is based off Herbie Hancock’s “Cantaloupe Island.”

For a signature drink, we’ve selected a decadent Sparkling French Martini (vodka, Chambord (raspberry liqueur), pineapple juice and champagne) – Ambient DJs’ resident French Martini specialist recommends Ketel One vodka.
