Notes and Editorial Reviews
When fate came calling a while back, New Yorker Kiku Collins hung up her classical C trumpet in favor of the simple and sultry flugelhorn. It was a good decision: her haunting tone has since been heard on commercials and just behind major pop stars the world over.
Her mentor, Mel Broiles, principal trumpet for the Metropolitan Opera in NYC, always said to her, "Miss Collins, you need to find a way to get on the television with that beautiful sound of yours". Well, she has, and, if you’ve watched Oprah, The Today Show, MTV's TRL or the American Music Awards recently you’ll have seen her in good company. She’s more than just Beyonce’s horn player, though. She’s now stepping into the spotlight all on her own with her
debut album “Here With Me”.
