    Oh yes! Phil Driscoll! thanks kcmt, I'd forgotten him! I saw him live once, an experience never to be forgotten. I know he processes the sound with pedals and stuff but I still really like it.

    And I don't have any problem with that, kc. But I'm a member of several music fora and I thought some of the guys here might! :-o

    I dug out a 1998 reissue of the "I Exalt Thee" cd - brilliant!

    If you think about it, those old cathedrals were designed for their reverb effect. So Notre Dame is really a very large, very expensive "sound processor".

    Yup. Also Ziggy Elman! "And The Angels Sing" is one of my all time favorites!

    Hey, Pat, you beat me to it! Those are precisely the people I'd have named, especially the 1950/60s Maynard. :cool:

    No one has mentioned Clark Terry or Blue Mitchell! I've been listening to Carl Saunders and Bobby Shew a lot lately, too. Don't forget to listen to other instrumentalists and vocalists, too - broadens the horizons a little! Chick Corea is a big influence for me. :)

    I'm a big fan of new york trumpet Ralph Alessi. Both him and the younger trumpet player Ambrose Akinmusire are among my favorite modern jazzers out their today, mainly because of their focus on sound and then creativity. Check them out if you haven't yet.
