Trombonist Melvyn Jernigan of the St. Louis Brass Quintet


In their 48 years of existence, the St. Louis Brass Quintet has had but one trombonist, Melvyn Jernigan, while many other trumpeters, hornists and tubists have spent time in the group. The St. Louis Brass Quintet will play in Jacksonville Saturday night, and I'll talk with Mr. Jernigan on the Friday edition of Live and Local. We'll also hear some recently received recordings by area performers.
