The extra ordinary lips on the trumpet are Rachel Therrien‘s, the TD Grand Jazz Award 2015 winner.
This young attractive Québécois musician is part of the Rachel Therrien Quintet that beat out ten other contestants ensembles in their class to win the TD award.
I was lucky to see this group in action this last summer and I can say that their sound was impressive and Ms Therrien was awesome on her trumpet. You can hear (a small sound clip) her play on the Montreal Jazz site.
She can really blow that horn equalling some of the greats of Jazz. I took a number of pictures during the show and think that this one captures her well.
