Description: In the 1950s and '60s, Scottish trumpeter Joss Moody was celebrated for his music: everyone who heard it imagined they knew the man who made it. But Joss's death proved them wrong: he had lived his life inside an extraordinary secret. His wife, Millie, was the only one who'd known the truth; their adopted son, Colman, has just learned it. Besieged by the press, their world shattered, they sink into the aching solace of memory: she for comfort, he desperate for answers.

Through a tapestry of voices -- Millie's and Colman's and, among others, those of Joss's drummer, the doctor who discovered Joss's secret, the funeral director who covered it up, the journalist who wants Colman's help in telling Joss's story -- we learn the startling and poignant tale of Joss and Millie: how they built a love, a family, and a life for themselves and their son out of a complex, dazzling lie.

Starkly beautiful and confident in its telling, emotionally charged and wholly unexpected, Trumpet is a bravura performance.
