    I have seen Severinsen, Maynard, Sandoval, Chase and so many others. However, I have never seen or heard anyone who understood the trumpet and could play like Harry James. He has been knocked as being commercial. Chris Botti isn't commercial? Maynard wasn't commercial? If Harry had taken better care of himself, he would have been an even greater influence. Suffice it to say that I knew Harry James and saw him many times. He did things that no other trumpet player could even imagine.

    I can't name one.

    Usually the person I'm listening to at the time and going "wows" me enough that other "favorites" fade into the background.

    I've been listening to Rafael Mendez a bit of late. Lot's of "wows" there.

    A Groundling,

    Oh yes! I listen to so many different trumpet players for different listening satisfaction. That's what music should do, whether it's a trumpet or ? The shear excitement created by Maynard, Chase or Cat. The creativeness of Lee, Freddie or Clark. The sound of Doc, Hirt & Harry. The technical prowress of Rafael, Vizzutti or Wynton. The quietness of Chet, Botti & Miles. The funkyness of Blue, Braun & ????? You get the picture!

    With all due respect to the many trumpet Gods mentioned in this thread, and I admire a great many of them, from the first time I heard McArthur Park Maynard has been my all time favorite. For me no one does it like Maynard did.

    Fred Moch (right now anyway). also two guys I played with in High School; D. Hester and R. Huff (honestly, they were gods on the horn, and just all around great people). I dont know if they are still playin' but if they are I wouldn't be supprised if the world starts to know their names.

    I also gotta mention Loius Armstrong.
