    Several of those included are not what I would consider "great" jazz players. At least one on their list insisted that he was not a jazz musician at all and at least one Emmy Award winner is omitted. These lists are completely subjective, rarely universally accepted and always somewhat controversial.

    Thanks, glad you enjoyed finding him. I first heard him when I returned to Germany in 1992 and heard him at a regional arts center with the United Jazz & Rock Ensemble, an insanely talented group of all stars. Here he is in that setting. He's playing at ca. 4:22. If you don't want to listen to the entire thing, don't miss the band's unison scat towards the end and then the outro.

    Avishai Cohen.
    Saw him at the Village Vanguard last night, with the Mark Turner Quartet. He was playing as great as any of the greatest. One for the history books, I say.

    I remember reading Tony Fruscella's obituary back in 1969 in down beat when I was 18.My high school band director,Dick Brown-who was also a trumpeter(he played on a Conn Victor AA trumpet/cornet dated 1960 from what he told me in 1969)-used to give me his back issues when he was through with them.I got them from '69 through '72.I was the only high school student he had who knew about jazz trumpeters other than Satchmo.I have never heard Tony Fruscella:I've never run across his records in the roughly 50 years I've been a serious jazz record collector.I guess he was from the cool jazz era because I remember down beat quoted him in the obit as saying that "I taught Chetty Baker a lot."He was either 41 or 42 at the time of his death.I met Dick Brown in late 1969 when he moved from New Hampshire out to North Bend,Oregon to take over the post as band director at my alumni,North Bend High School where I graduated in 1970.I used to take my jazz records over to his house and play them.He turned me on to Ralph Marterie and Rafael Mendez whom he had on some Coast 45 rpm records that were in a boxed set.I'd never heard them before.My jazz trumpet collection at that time consisted of Sonny Berman with Woody Herman 78s on Columbia from 1945 and '46,a battered copy of "Remember/Tippin' In" by Erskine Hawkins."T-
    wlight Time/Fish Market" by Roy Eldridge and a couple of Bunny Berigan 78s and Red Nichols 1929-30 Five Pennies reissued on 78 on the Brunswick label circa 1943.Then there were all of those H-
    arry James Columbia 78s I also listened and played along with like "Sleepy Lagoon","Jalousie" and "The Man With the Horn".Such was my immersion to learning how to play jazz.I've never gone beyond that style and make no apologies for it.My only regret,other than not becoming a better technician due to playing tuba then,was that I never made a career out it and making a ton of money like Wynton Marsalis and getting appreciation for it.In those days,I was ridiculed for it because I wasn't into rock.To heck with them:I still enjoy what I do and I'm still getting my kicks.
