Trumpeter wanted for local band

Seeking a brass player, preferably trumpet, to form a band that
will play mostly Blues and Jazz Standards with lots of Original songs.
Think Tom Waits, Leon Redbone, JJ Cale, Brownie McGhee, Josh White… We
would be guitar/vocals, bass, and horn and we would play out two to three
times monthly (paid gigs). I have a new CD coming out next month and can
send samples of the sound I am looking for to anyone who is interested.
It would be great to find someone who is willing to play regularly,
however, I can also work with someone who can’t commit regularly but would
be capable of sitting in now and then.
