Duane Eubanks

Duane Eubanks simmers. Percolates. The jazz trumpeter/ composer/arranger/producer is a multi-talented force whose fiery blasts and sweet distinctive sound carry his horn into a musical space that defies categorization. In this short doc by American filmmaker Kal, jazz connects Duane to the continuum of great musicians who came before him and those still to come.
