As a former trumpet player Maynard, Faddis, and Marsalis hold a special place in my heart. (Everyone knows trumpet players are full of hot air ^_^)

who is Maynard? (Maynard Ferguson?)
And Faddis? (no idea)

Marsalis, hmmh interesting, i have marked him in my book but not as Jazz man, i adore him as baroque trumpeter. Breathtaking!

You are on the money with Maynard Ferguson.

John Faddis is definitely one of the high-high players, but he has some great tracks. Was listening to "A Night in Tunisia" on NPR on the way home from work the other day. Even in my car that was nice.

Maynard Rocks! I've seen him live (at his 70'th birthday party in NYC). Rock on....wow. I own most of his recordings.

my favorite is Maynards version of Country Road (my all time favorite song) (btw...the James Taylor LIVE version ROCKS too)


John Faddis and Arturo Sandoval are 2 other GREAT players. They can really scream and are both very very talented ta boot!

One favorite of mine though is a guy named Bill Chase. He was lead trumpet for Maynard for a short time...then formed his own band...called CHASE. They put out 3 recordings....CHASE, ENNEA? and PURE MUSIC (Pure music being my favorite) and then Bill died in a tragic plane crash in the 70's. The music is definitely not of this era, but I really admire Bill's orchestration, and his high register work...it blends so well...and if you like cascading trumpets....this is the stuff to listen too. Very cheasy...but awesome once you get a taste for it. I never tire of it.

James Morrison is a fantastic Aussie player....for the Aussie's on this board. Very musical...classicly talented, and can play jazz like CRAZY too...very clean and nice. Favorite Song "Old Rugged Cross" ...not the live version...the studio version..good stuff.

btw...yes I do play trumpet myself

Well, I think no-one beats the great Miles, and in my opinion the second best is Tomasz Stanko - the great polish trumpeter.
The next in my list would be Marsalis and Dizzy Gillespie.
But don't forget being from Aussieland I will always like James Morrison.

Regards

Stan

Hi, all.

Apart from Satchmo (am I original?), Miles Davis, Chet Baker, Clifford Brown (of course), Marsalis and Art Farmer, I'd like to recommend you a couple of new orleanians: don't miss the tracks of Terence Blanchard and Leroy Jones (the trumpet on some Harry Connick jr. discs, he has a beautiful sound and has made some discs on his own, traditional jazz all of them, very enjoyable, if you like new Orleans jazz with a cool touch and a lot of swing, go for it).

JP.
