Troy Thompson

Music listing
Troy hails from Anchorage, Alaska. He graduated from Western Washington University in 1986 with a Bachelor’s degree in Jazz Studies. While at Western he studied with the sublime Syd Potter and was selected as a finalist in the International Trumpet Guild’s Jazz Improvisation Competition. He was awarded a Graduate Assistantship in the Jazz Studies department at the University of Northern Iowa where he studied with the beautiful and talented Dr. Robert Washut. During this time he was selected as a finalist in the International Trumpet Guild’s Composition Competition. Also while at UNI he played in and wrote for the faculty brass quintet, the Northern Brass Quintet. After graduating UNI with a Master’s in Composition he spent WAY too many years on cruise ships playing trumpet, writing, destroying his liver and assisting with the collapse of morality in western civilization. His arrangements can be heard on many cruise lines and his arrangements for big band have been played by many (ok, maybe just a few) college and university jazz ensembles as well as regional big bands.
