    Who is your favorite trumpet artist?
    Mine would probably be Hakan Hardenberger because of his amazing technical skill and true virtuoso performance qualities.
    What about you?

    Willem de Kooning, the Dutch/American abstract expressionist pianter.

    He had great taste in trumpeters.

    Tough decision...there are so many great, great trumpet players who I respect and try to emulate. (A few are guest artists here!)

    If I had to choose one, and only one, it would be Bud.

    While thinking about this I am having a hard time choosing between two people (both perhaps a bit unusual?): Shorty Rogers or Herb Alpert.

    I'll have to agree with the choice of Maurice André.

    Niklas Eklund, he plays a natural trumpet so cleanly that you think he has valves!

    Bill Chase. He played with total abandon yet maintained exquisite control over the trumpet. His power was astounding and his technical facility was truly world class.
