Anyone know this double-trumpeter’s name? I think he’s the same guy who used to play two trumpets at the same time at the Astor Place cube.
I have an audio recording of him somewhere when he stopped playing mid-song to confront a skateboarder who kept trying to steal his donation box. The trumpeter reached into his case and pulled out nunchuks! The two fought on the street until they were both pretty well beat up. Ultimately the musicians packed up and left for the day. I always wanted to find out if the trumpeter ended up okay — I mean, what kind of idiot asshole would ever get into a punch-up with a guy with nunchuks who could play two horns at once?
