    this is absolutely nuts. I have his dvd "live from the blue note", his trumpet evolution cd, and other misc. cd's of his, and as an entertainer, arturo never fails to impress. One can only imagine the amount of practice time guys like him, vizzutti, and wynton put in on the horn. Absolutely Amazing trumpet player.

    Arturo is the Bomb!

    He does things with a trumpet that make the rest of us look like posers.

    He's scatting the solos for each instrument. You can hear the trumpet solo, bass solo, percussion solo, in his scat singing. I have seen him many, many times and he always does a scat rendition of various instruments. Every time I've seen him he's played percussion, piano, jew's harp (that dizzy always did as well as trumpet all with expertise. A true MASTER. Always has taken the time to chat with me after a show and sign an autograph. What more can I say!

    I rather listen to your Ack van Rooijen clips. Ack is 76 now and still plays as beautiful as ever. We've played together many times and he always amazes me with his musicality. He's also a very nice guy!

    Yes, one of the 2 flugelists I put on a pedastal, Ack van Rooyen and CT. Wish I had the pleasure of of meeting him. Yes, he is Premier. Better yet, think he's done some stuff with CT. Wish I could get my hands on that, 2 of the all time Greats!
