This cool dude is rocking it!
I hope Louie Armstrong would be proud of this chap!

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

Rotary flügel, but still. Mine should be here next week, so i've been told...
