A real loss for the trumpet community. My thoughts go out to his family in this loss.
I met him personally after a lesson with Claudio Roditi. Claudio took me to his studio at the conclusion of one of our lessons, after we discussed mouthpieces influences on sounding of the trumpet. Jerome hand lathed a custom mouthpiece for my Olds Recording on the spot. He first identified a cup that worked best for me, had me play my horn, then took it to his lathe to work on the back bore. He did this 5 times going back and forth between my horn and his lathe. He did not charge me a dime for his expertise or his time!
