Kermit Ruffins is an American jazz trumpeter, singer, and composer from New Orleans, Louisiana,United States. He has been influenced by Louis Armstrong and Louis Jordan and says that the highest note he can hit on trumpet is a high C. He often accompanies his songs with his own vocals. Most of his bands perform New Orleans jazz standards, though he also composes many of his own pieces. Jon Pareles of The New York Times wrote, «Mr. Ruffins is an unabashed entertainer who plays trumpet with a bright, silvery tone, sings with off-the-cuff charm and never gets too abstruse in his material.
**New Sound Brass Band**
NSB is a band that brings to together a lot of different backgrounds, personalities and traditions. NSB in a way is a folk band meaning that our music reflects the culture we create together and geographic location. While our sound finds its roots in a mixture of mummery, jazz and gospel, it is most fairly understood as Philadelphia spoken through brass and beats.
