    Mark Gould is hilarious and one of the most amazing trumpet players on the planet. That's what's up with him.

    He played principal trumpet at the Metropolitan Opera until he retired at the top of his game, to give someone else a chance. Now he does whatever he wants to do.

    Also, even though the mainstream media is ignoring him for some reason, he is running for president of the USA in 2012.

    He is a one-of-a-kind true trumpet legend and has one of the wildest (and warped) senses of humor anywhere.

    Listen to old recordings of the New York Trumpet Ensemble. Judicious use of delicate power. I'd vote any of them for President, with the exception of Edward Carroll--he has more important things to do here as an Artist in Residence!
