I hope you guys are being sarcastic as regards Claudio Roditi.
Just a joke between Gmonady and me. We are both big fans of Claudio Roditi!
I repeat: We are both big fans of Claudio Who!
Pinchuno, I have nothing but fond memories of Claudio. He was my trumpet teacher for the last 18 months that I lived in New York City in the early 1980's. He was playing mostly with Dizzy at that time. He taught me the concept of expanding my improvisational vocabulary during that time, as well as taught me the physics of the trumpet. I remember after our hour lesson he would ALWAYS grab a cab for the both of us, then we would jam with other musicians in a loft down in SoHo, record the sessions, then critique each other. All this for a $20 "hour" lesson. He would always pay the cab fare. No sarcasm for Claudio, only the deepest, most humble respect.
I haven't ever heard anyone play a rotary trumpet the way Claudio plays it in the first video. He is great!

Ok. Just making sure!
