MELTON MUSTAFA picture
The younger brother of saxophonist Jesse Jones, Jr., Melton Mustafa is an expressive, hot-blooded trumpeter who played mostly jazz in the 1980s and '90s but has also done his share of R&B sessions over the years. Mustafa was born and raised in Miami, where he started playing the trumpet in junior high school and, as a teenager, played in a five-piece R&B/calypso band led by his brother. As a young adult in the '60s, Mustafa studied at Berklee College of Music and Mississippi Valley State College before graduating from Florida A&M with a degree in music education. Mustafa ended up backing quite a few soul artists in the late '60s and '70s, including Sam & Dave, Betty Wright, Latimore, the Marvelettes, and Joe Simon.
