Chapman trumpet is brilliant, beautiful and smooth. It's an instrument that just works - and it's incredibly fun to play, because it sounds legit! Programmed to give you a responsive sound/feel, this thing will soar over the orchestra, but also fit right into whatever mix you're working on. We have a feeling this instrument will make its way into your sample arsenal, and maybe even your heart. Brandon Chapman is the talent behind the trumpet.

…At the time, it revitalized traditional folk ideals of social activism and the like, kick starting the PC revolution in the process, but if those were its only merits, Tracy Chapman would sound dated. The record continues to sound fresh because Chapman's writing is so keenly observed and her strong, gutsy singing makes each song sound intimate and immediate.
