Hugh tells us about the very beginning of his career, when he was given a trumpet by Archbishop Trevor Huddleston, the anti-apartheid chaplain who played a decisive role in his life. This trip is the first part of the journey, a jazzy trip where the trumpeter recalls his life until the 70's. We'll take you on a second trip around Christmas.
