    Who is the oldest professional trumpet player that you all know that is still playing and performing? Doc Severinson is the oldest I know at 80+.

    Anybody know how old Charlie Schlueter is? He can't be too far off from Doc. I know he's retired from the Boston Symphony Orchestra...but he's still performing and active. I just don't know how old he is...???

    Clark Terry - 91 years young! I think he still teaches and performs.

    I don't know how old Pauly Cohen (Count Bassie) is but he's still playing down in Florida.
