One of jazz’s major multi-instrumentalists, Glenn Zottola is a master of the trumpet, tenor and alto saxophones. Only a handful of artists in jazz history have developed their own voices on both brass and reed instrumentalists, most notably Benny Carter, Ira Sullivan and more recently Scott Robinson. Also quite rare are the number of musicians who have played as wide a range of styles as Glenn, who has sounded consistently credible and creative whether performing the music of King Oliver, Sidney Bechet, Benny Goodman, Clifford Brown, 1960s hard bop or Chick Corea.
