Re: Who is the best Trumpet player now?? 17:20 on Tuesday, December 16, 2003
I don`t think that there is a top notch trumpeter out there considering the fact that there are so many, but I do belive that David O`neal and Phil Driscoll and marsalis and maynard are to me the better in sound, range and control.
Who is the best trumpet player now?? 20:58 on Friday, December 26, 2003
Right now, I`m really interested in Nicholas Payton. But I still looooove Miles Davis and of course Louis Armstrong. These men including Marsalis are much of the basis for today`s jazz music and trumpet styles. Like for instance, Sandoval`s tone and trumpeting technique is influenced by the great Dizzie Gillespie and Nicholas Payton`s by Wynton Marsalis. So you know, every trumpet player is awesome just depends on the music, and they should have some originality.
OH! and by-the-way, does anyone know what CD, by Chet Baker (another wicked player), has "In Your Own Sweet Way" on it. I`ve been looking for that song everywhere!!!
I just listened to that Andrea dude from the link above. I agree that he`s good and that he can play really high. His soloing needs more taste than high notes though. Listen to Jon Faddis for high notes AND taste.

Man yall haven`t heard real music, No one metoined Al Hirt he is no doubt the best trumpet player ever. He died in 1999 but his legend lives on and it all was will. He is a unbelieveable trumpet player. If you have never heard Al Hirt play download one of his songs off of Kazaa and see what a great trumpet player he is.
different musical styles 19:24 on Tuesday, January 13, 2004
it is unfair to judge and compare great musicians from different genres because they will excell in the idiom they love and it should not be forgotten that it is the music that is important. therefore the range and tone of ferguson puts him head & shoulders above mere mortals but equally clark terry has range,technique and style and then there is james morrison who just shines on whatever he blows. classical players like dokshizer,andre have unrivaled technique but never loose sight of what they are doing which is playing music. after saying all that they would all have to go a long way to beat mendez!
there ok i suppose 20:10 on Tuesday, January 13, 2004
Jokin there top players however wynton i have to say leaves me a little cold 100% respect for his ability and dedication but lacks that spark that terry,ferguson,sandoval,dizzy and lois have and had. but i say again check out rafael mendez and the more i think about it james morrison
Dr. Michael Schmidt is the greatest high note trumpet player 15:17 on Wednesday, January 21, 2004
The Greatest high note trumpet player alive is Dr.Michael E. Schmidt.
Yuo can not talk about playing high notes on a trumpet without mentioning dr.Michael E. Schmidt because Dr. Michael E. Schmidt is the greatest high note trumpet player who is still alive and when you think of high notes on a trumpet you have to think of Dr. Michael E. Schmidt because Dr. Schmidt is the king of trumpet high notes and Michael Schmidt can play high notes on a trumpet higher than Arturo can.
