    Warwick Alder is one of Australia's greats. Very little recorded though.

    +1. I was reminded of this last week. My tutor for jazz combo, a bass player, was telling me that he'd played many times with Bob and considered him to have the nicest tone in the biz.

    I am going back a bit, but
    Bob Barnard plays a great cornet. Loved hearing him in small groups, just improvs beautifully.
    Keith Hounslow was magic with the Pocket trumpet and Flugelhorn
    James Blunt played a beautiful classical trumpet.
    Dave Newdick plays a great Lead trumpet

    Seriously, there are many great trumpeters in Australia, plenty that play in Brass Band, Orchestras and Jazz arenas, as well as pro teachers. Studio pros are more harder to find, as they are like a closed club. Subs for the regulars are hard to find. Gigs like Dancing with the Stars etc are hard to find in Oz.

    I remember guys in the band trying to "cover" the solo.I told them it would take a flugel to git-r-done. All I got was puzzled looks! Only one guy knew what one was.
