    John Coppola has been there and done everything. From the studio to the road, jazz, big band, opera, gospel, Country & Western, jingles, Broadway, he is definetely a trumpet legend.

    He has played with all the greats, Charlie Barnet, Stan Kenton, Woody Herman, Henry Mancini, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Petula Clark, Dizzy Gillespie, Nelson Riddle, Nat Cole, Frank Sinatra, you name it.

    Still an active teacher, John has taught and inspired many modern greats, and must be heard to be believed.
