“The Hawk’s Out”! Right place at the right time! Lights, camera, mouthpiece…wait…action!

For this trumpet player and educator, the office takes many forms. Steve Hawk and I discuss the many aspects of his career: a robust list of recording credits, performing rotating Broadway musicals in Pittsburgh and beyond, and a close call with his mouthpiece that is anything but a bore.

Steve Hawk performs as a freelance trumpeter, where he has played lead trumpet with jazz legends including; Dizzy Gillespie, The Dizzy Gillespie Alumni Big Band, The Woody Herman Orchestra, The Bob Mintzer Big Band, Arturo Sandoval, The Manhattan Transfer, The New York Voices, Nancy Wilson, Diane Schuur and entertainers such as Bob Hope, Jerry Lewis, Ray Charles, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Natalie Cole, and Mannheim Steamroller.

Dr. Hawk has been an active performer in the Pittsburgh area for over 25 years, performing as the Principal trumpet with the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera Orchestra, Pittsburgh Symphony Broadway Orchestra, The
Pittsburgh Jazz Orchestra, and The MCG Big Band, as well as orchestral and solo opportunities, including performing with The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Wheeling Symphony Orchestra, Pittsburgh Opera Orchestra, Pittsburgh Ballet Orchestra, Butler Symphony Orchestra, and the Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra, respectively. Steve has also performed as the Principal Trumpeter with the San Antonio Symphony Pops Orchestra, where he currently resides.

Hawk’s first Big Band recording entitled, "The Hawk's Out", recorded by the Hawk Richard Jazz Orchestra in Los Angeles, CA, was selected by New York’s “Cadence Magazine” as its Outstanding Big Band Recording of the year for 1998. His more recent recording with the HawkRichard Jazz Orchestra is entitled “Reunion”. He is also a co-leader along with Mike Tomaro, and lead trumpeter with The Three Rivers Jazz Orchestra, whose first recording is entitled, “The Night Owl Suite”. Dr. Hawk’s studio credentials also include with Ms. Nancy Wilson on her 2004 Grammy Award winning recording, “RSVP”, as well as her 2006 Grammy Award Winner, “Turned to Blue”. Other recording experience includes with The Bob Mintzer Big Band on the Grammy Nominated recording, “For The Moment”; The New York Voices, “A Day Like This”; Joe Negri, “Uptown Elegance”; Sheryl Bailey, “A New Promise”; and the Gene Krupa Orchestra recording, “Thinking of Gene”, where his performance of legendary Roy Eldridge solo works has received critical acclaim. He has also appeared in PBS television specials featuring The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Spinners, Ms. Patti Page, The Four Aces, and numerous others. He appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s 2001 Christmas special with Ms. Nancy Wilson.
