    My last trumpet mentor was a lush player.
    Actually he was just a LUSH!

    Dang, Manny....you just made this really hard.

    I've been around and around on this, imagining my favorite player's sounds, and I keep coming back to full. Wait...no. Intense. Can I change my answer? (Can you tell I had elementary all day today?)

    [quote="Manny Laureano]Go to that cool Mexican restaurant, the semi-fancy one just up the road from school (you know the one, I forgot the name) and get a plate of three ground beef enchiladas. One has red sauce, another chile verde, and the third has poblana on it. Three enchiladas, three sauces. Have a frozen Margarita with it since you're of age in Texas.

    When you're finished you'll know what I'm talkin' about.

    HAHA, I ate there just the other nite with some friends and had the enchiladas. No Margarita since I don't drink but I had a big glass of tea... So yeah, I understand "Rich" now, lol. Good analogy man.

    My one word for sound would be "Gold" for both my legit and jazz playin'.

    I can describe the sound I want to have in one word no problem.

    'Wynton'

    Well, the sentiment is a good one but which Wynton? Which Herseth?

    For me part of the universal appeal of both those gentlemen is the ability to change their sound which is the topic.

    So, I think for this informal poll, the adjectives work best as opposed to personal noun-cum-adjectives.

    Tom, djm?

    What adjectives descibe your favorite parts of these artists approaches?
