    Not the highest note mentioned, but . . .

    May 1, 1982 . . . Doc Severinsen at the end of a 2.5 hour concerto with a symphony orchestra, during an amazing cadenza, played Bb below triple C, and it was LOUD !!

    The little girl in this video puts me to shame. What a fanatastic way to start a trumpet career - already good.

    Highest note is probably in the michael haydn trumpet concerto. At least its one of the highest i've heard.

    MF Horn 1, the track is Eli's Coming. Maynard nails an A over Double C that is big and clean. No sliding up to it,he just picks it clean. Maybe it's not the highest note but I think it's the best recording of REAL PLAYING in the upper register.
    Lots of guys can squeal but very few can play high notes. Maynard, like Cat and a few select others were the kings.
    I once heard Arturo live nail a G over Double C that could have peeled paint. Also have heard Jon Faddis play well over Double C live. I was sitting very close to the stage at SUNY Purchase when I saw Jon and his command and ease of playing are simply astonishing.

    Certainly not the highest recorded notes, but I've never seen high notes as an athletic event, or something that needs to be achieved on their own.

    FWIW, I've always enjoyed this video of Maynard - the kind of power and control he had was dumbfounding, but the WAY he played things was what really set him apart. I love in this clip those super long phrases he played. He was playing that stuff EXACTLY like he wanted to play it and the fact that it was live - he didn't have the opportunity to go back and re-do it take after take - shows what kind of player he really was.
