Tribute to the Trumpet Masters, a quartet date, includes dedications to nine trumpeters. Morgan’s “Search for the New Land” and Lynch’s “Charles Tolliver” are two of the most exotic tunes. “Woody Shaw,” another Lynch original, captures the angularity, focus and urgency in that late trumpeter’s style. His “Tribute to Blue” recalls Mitchell’s relaxed, swinging, melodic attributes.
