I agree. Shakes are wider, in my opinion, than lip trills, and lack a certain "clarity." Shakes can cover note intervals that "true" lip trills wouldn't normally "allow."
I have heard folks "shake" notes and it sounds pretty horrible. It needs to be controlled and fit into the piece.
If I'm not mistaken, (and I'm not) Wilmer is the guy the Leonard Bernstein called "That genius first trumpet player".
Here is Mike Williams, 25 years as the lead trumpet for the Count Basie Orchestra, sitting in in my band at a party for me.
Watch his shakes at 12 seconds, 29 seconds and the 1:02 mark.
An informal party and Mike sat in so I could dance with my wife, and mom in law.
Mike's wife is the girl playing the third book beside him

Yes the Wise One. Great player, musician. But I was think thinking og Wilber from Mr. Ed. Mr. Ed said Wilber with a shake (whinny).
Now that's a shake! Good band. Do you get to work much?
Ahhh yes, .

I have a great video on my website with some trumpet tutorials that show various methods for how to do shakes. It's under the Special Effects section. Hope that helps some.
Ours is the busiest profession big band in Michigan. We do 30s-40s swing, plus Sinatra/Basie charts from the 50s.
All original, or note for note transcriptions of the original bands.
5 sax, 3 bones, 3 trumpets, P D B G and vocals.
Yeah, we're busy.
