A very interesting trumpetist, Art Farmer also played a number of "exotic" instruments (the flugelhorn he helped popularize, and his own funny flumpet).
His career spans five decades, with a constant and impressive number of records.
Arthur Stewart "Art" Farmer (August 21, 1928 – October 4, 1999) was an American jazz trumpeter and flugelhorn player. He also played flumpet, a trumpet–flugelhorn combination specially designed for him. He and his identical twin brother, double bassist Addison Farmer, started playing professionally while still at high school. Art gained greater attention after the release of a recording of his composition "Farmer's Market" in 1952. He subsequently moved from Los Angeles to New York, becoming known principally as a bebop player, performing and recording with musicians such as Horace Silver, Sonny Rollins, and Gigi Gryce.Continue reading at Wikipedia...
