    I got to meet Glenn Drewes when I studied with Joe Mosello as I was getting my my Masters at New Jersey City University. What a great player and great guy. I met Bud Burridge there as well. What always got me about Bud was even when he was playing jazz unaccompanied, was how much he swung. I could swear I heard a bass and drummer!! And Joe Mosello, what a great player and teacher. And he's an unbelievably nice guy.

    Another player to consider would be Brian Scriver of GR mouthpiece fame. He fronts a group that plays Chase charts. Check out Welcome to Brian Scriver's Website! for details - and get his CD if you like the Bill Chase charts!

    Gee, thanks guys. Some different names. I was half expecting the same ones most of the time. Tony (post 10) makes a great point, and Walter (post 15) I like where you're coming from. Eclectic mix that would sure make one cool band!

    What about the orchestra's guys, have you forgotten them? They have a 'trumpet section' as well. I was going to write horn section, but figured some smart Alec would write Dennis Brain, Barry Tuckwell, Anthony Halstead, and some Russian guy with a totally unpronouncable name!

    Keep it coming.

    All the best.

    My fantasy horn section would be Ellington's from the fifties: Cat Anderson, Clark Terry, Ray Nance, Shorty Baker.

    I'm curious. Why has no-one put Wynton in the frame? Ok, so my principle instrument is a plank of wood with three pickups, but, I've still got ears (and I can nail three octaves on the trumpet). I've been to many trumpets events and heard lots of trumpeters (it goes with the job!). I've seen the Lincoln Centre band a couple of times and 'he' sure has ears to.

    So, back to the point. Why no Wynton? I hope I havent opened a can of worms here! Personally, I like the guy. I've met him a few times and he's been the perfect gentleman, even remembered who I was without me telling him.

    All the best.
