The Singing Trumpet - Rafael Mendez

I Surrender Dear
The Singing Trumpet
With Rafael Mendez
His Trumpet And Orchestra Under The Direction Of Russ Garcia
Decca DL 78869

From the back cover: In the words of Edwin Franko Goldman, the founder and late conductor of the famous Goldman Band Concerts, "Rafael Mendez is the greatest trumpeter in the world today. He has no equal." Born in Mexico, Mendez received his first musical instruction from his father. At the age of six, he was performing with his parents on tour. In the United States, he studied under the famous Herbert L. Clarke. Recognition in America was not immediate, however, and between his arrival and eventual acclaim in radio, television and films, he was forced to give up music for a short time.
