    Me....and I really mean it. Its not that Im full of myself, and I know that Im by no means the best Ive ever heard. Its just that Im so crazy about playing that I inspire myself to keep on going even when Ive had a bad day. I just love that trumpet and of course TM. Best wishes.

    Gotta say, it's Lee Morgan, then larry tscharner, then stevesf, but I am willing to change the order for a rep point (or two). Hay, as a physician, I am ethical and honest, but as a trumpet player, I'm a tramp (OK Im a whore)!

    Maurice Andre, Miles Davis. They're the reason I picked trumpet when I decided I had to play an instrument.
