    I have a fun thread idea! What kind of trumpet player are you!? The goal is to have you ONLY answer with the names given. If you can think of another actor without qualifying him/her that's ok. Ready to to live vicariously and play? Here we go:

    1. The Classical style: Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Shakespeare.

    2. The Jazz style: Andy Warhol, Stanley Kubrick, Al Pacino.

    3. I'm my own man, don't define me!: Ricardo Montalbon, James Dean, Marlon Brando

    4. I'm my own woman, there's no one else like me!: Marylin Monroe, Jackie O

    I'm personally like Face from the A-team. I wish I could qualify but if you watched...well...you know...

    WHAT SAY YOU?

    The only association I have with the subject of your thread is: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
    Have a nice therapy today.

    Classical Style: Robin Williams - Whimsically creative with someone else's lines
    Jazz Style: Andy Williams - Smooth and romantic.

    I literally just LOLed! Had I been sipping coffee it would have gone all over the screen! :D

    I'm #3 - I'm not really a type, other than I gig where the money is - classical, big band, Latin Band - makes no difference to me.

    I don't know, I'm in a community band and think I'm better than I probably am so....

    So Dennis, I am from Mt. Healthy originally. So in which community band do you play?

    By the way, my quintet (Eddie Brookshire Quintet) is playing the Jazz Friday Fusion Series in Cincinnati beginning at 7 PM the evening of June 19th. If you are not doing anything perhaps we can meet during or after and talk trumpet. By the way if you are out there reading this, CFKid and Cyber_Shake, drop by and we can make this a group function!
