    Does anyone have a link to or know where I can get a copy of "Blow Gabriel Blow" with Maynard playing lead? Ethel Mereman is singing and a young Maynard playing lead (early 1950's?) is phenominal!! The power and ease that he blows through multiple octaves is crazy. I know it's a showtune, but you have to hear it. Classic Maynard.

    I first heard it on the old website, but I haven't heard it since that place went down. I've searched everywhere (iTunes, Amazon, Google, etc.) but I can't find it. Any help is appreciated...

    If there are any Ethel Merman fans out there I can tell you that you'll find TONS of recording of her singing "Blow Gabriel Blow" on the internet. Maynard playing lead with her, not so much...

    That's true, the Merm and others doing that song. I couldn't find the Maynard one either.:-(

    I'll second that. Would love to hear it. Also, his playing on the 10 Commandments recorded anywhere? I've never heard that, nor do I remember much trumpet playing in the film.
