    Mauna Kea (White Mountain), the tallest volcano on the "big island" of Hawaii, is likely the tallest mountain on Earth. Measured from its base, it is about 10,000 meters tall, but only 4205 m are above water. If underwater waterfalls count, so do underwater mountains.

    thank you AMZI for posting that -- for some reason I didn't find it ---- and I listened to Amazing Grace and a few others -- Obviously Dr. Schmidt can play the trumpet. Amazing Grace was a nice sound, as for the "HIGH NOTES" higher than anyone else, I still remain a skeptic (primarily because I've got a bunch of recordings from Maynard, Arturo, Morrison, Phil Driscoll, and such ---
    but YES, again AMZI -- thank you for posting ---- at least 1 person here listened to the recordings

    Hm - I'm not sure Amazing Grace would put Dr. Mike into my top 10 favourites at all -- especially what he does to it at 2:10 onwards. If they are his high notes then they are sadly out of tune and don't sound comfortable at all.
    The other songs he has on that page are much better (the ones I listened to) though I don't think he is in the same class as Doc or Arturo or Maurice André etc.

    thanks for re-iterating my point -- ((I actually liked the Amazing Grace - perhaps it is only because I have practiced diligently enough to perhaps pull off Dr Schmidt's version)) --- of course, I will remain a skeptic of Dr. Mikey, as I don't believe he has neither the highest nor the loudest notes))

    of course -- the following vid is a lot of singing --- but at the 2 minute mark ----OK, NOW THIS IS THE VERSION I WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO DO (((of course, if some of you are purist, you may not like the changes)))

    With that much reverb and digital delay I'm sure you'd sound even better than the bulbous-headed one.

    He might have been done with the song, put away his trumpet, and sat down before the sound stopped.
