Trumpeter Irvin Mayfield was named cultural ambassador of New Orleans, and the state of Louisiana, back in 2003, when he was just 25. He had already founded the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, the band that he's bringing to the Tampa Bay Area. Bob Seymour caught up with Irvin Mayfield on Saturday Night Jazz, in an hour of conversation and music from that Crescent City big band, as well as one of Mayfield’s other groups, Los Hombres Calientes.
