Miles Davis 16:05 on Tuesday, December 06, 2005
Miles Davis, honestly. Listen to his 1964 album Four and More. It`s him, Ron/Herbie/Tony and.. I can`t remember the sax off hand. I don`t think that Miles` bop playing was as good as Dizzy`s, but when you start to get into Kind of Blue up into the mid-late 60s he really shined.
Good trumpet playing is more than playing high notes or the speed of playing said notes. Yes, Bill Chase was good. So is Maynard. However, they both pale in comparison to Miles and even players like Chet Baker, etc.

Yes, Quad F# actually. It took me around 6 years to get to, and by then, I had just begun to play Riverdance up 2 octaves, so, I needed to get higher XD
Like I said, No pressure, as much air as possible, Really works, with time.
High Notes 14:51 on Tuesday, December 20, 2005
just buy a pee shooter mouthpiece like a jet tone, get a super lightweight horn like a Shilke, try to imitate Maynard`s mannerisms, and you are on your way! It also helps to have some tight jockey shorts, and make sure your colon is empty, then wail man!! Super triple F# wow! I`m impressed!!
