    His choices of Western ballad material are a little "square" (but probably good choices for the audiences I see on YouTube) and maybe little too much Maynard-esque showboating here and there, but.. beyond that the man can blow the lacquer right off the bell, more power to him! The Prestissimo cadenza on the encore is a riot.

    Yeah, I think this guy could really be something if he innovated musically. In terms of trumpet playing - beast!

    Yes! One of my Skype students from Austria just turned me on to Vlado today. What a fantastic player! Here's one of the videos I watched and liked:
