    I just watched the new Mercury MLX commercial. There is a beautiful flugel solo being played in the background. Anyone know who it is? What the tune is?

    If this is the one. It's not a flugel. It's Miles Davis on a recording he did with Columbia: Generique (Sorry Mikel, I don't have the marks on my keyboard to go over the e's with '.

    And it's not. I meant to write trumpet. I've had flugel on the brain lately. Thanks, Doc. This is a beautiful recording.

    Yes, the first time I saw that commercial I thought, very cool...one of the songs Miles Davis recorded for that French movie.

    Hi I remember a TV commercial in the late 60s I think it was for Heinz ketchup it had a slow beautiful trumpet melody and behind the music the voice over saying "Heinz the slowest ketchup " Anthony
