JOHN THIRKELL - JAMIROQUAI TRUMPET PLAYER

Postby High_Times on Thu Jul 28, 2005 7:28 am

Hi guys,

I wanted to tell you about John Thirkell, amazing
trumpet performer .

John Thirkell is Jamiroquai trumpet player who recorded
trumpet on Jamiroquai debut album "Emergency On Planet Earth", 1993
and went on tour with Jamiroquai in 1993.

An interesting fact is that he played trumpet on cool George Michael's song "Spinning The Wheel"
from "Older" album (1996) (also released as a single)

check the preview of Spinning the Wheel:

older cd:

John Thirkell is one of my most favourite trumpet and flugelhorn players in the world.

its the second case when Jamiroquai and George Michael have the same band members - another one is G Michael ex bassist Paul Turner who now is Jamiroquai bassist.
