    I have to admit, this sounds a bit silly - one of those trumpet - athletic questions. However, I can't help myself asking this question after viewing this piece arranged for trumpet (originally for violin) ... Check out the finale and actually listen... I'm not sure if any of Mendez's solos could be more technically challenging (except moto perpetuo).

    And I happen to be the same person asking the question :-P . However, I can't quite believe that statistic. I googled the person you have quoted and couldn't find any trace of him. Also, if my memory serves, Mendez had a slow single tonguing.

    As I've said...

    a sense of humor in this business is a good thing.

    I can't believe I actually looked him up (this was quite a while ago).

    And this thread has become side tracked. :lol: Manny, what do you think of the piece with regard to my question?

    I missed that post that you linked the first time around. What a gem! Thanks for doing this "research"!

    How fast can a man run?

    How deep can a woman swim?

    How long can you hold your breath?

    How high can a trumpeter play?

    How fast is it possible for a trumpeter to tongue?
