    Look up Claudio Roditi and Jimmy Owens. You won't be disappointed.

    Is that a trumpet or a Flügelhorn?

    Thomas Gansch is always using a rotary for jazz!

    Well, nowadays he's using his Ganschhorn, which is not really a rotary because the length of leadpipe and bell are as they would be in a piston trumpet.

    And if you look closely at the trumpet in that video, you'll find that the hooter probably is older than Jazz itself... it's most probably a late 1890s Bohemian Bb rotary.

    (personal side note - I think that the valves and not the leadpipe length would dictate whether or not it is a rotary horn. therefore - gansch horn: rotary. TARV if you must.)

    Anyway - I really like how jazz sounds on a rotary because of the way the valve articulates each note. Without using the tongue you get a nice gentle .... hmmm - difficult to find a 'sound' to write with letters... but I guess it would be a very muted gentle 'pop' -but without the last 'p'. Maybe 'thum'. anyway. I like it!

    Jazz can be played on anything as long as the person behind whatever instrument feels the music
