The title says it all. Who is your favorite trumpeter?
depends on what mood I'm in....
there are some usual suspects though.....
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)!
I really don't have a favorite but I do like Al Hirt, Doc, Arturo, Dan Oxley, Snooky and a host of others
Herb Alpert.....Maynard.....Chris Botti.....Doc......and myself !!
Maurice Andre, Miles Davis. They're the reason I picked trumpet when I decided I had to play an instrument.
Me, of course!
And then.... it varies depending on specialty
Lead: John Thomas, Arnie Chycoski, Snookie Young, Conrad Gozzo, Bill Chase
Classical Soloist: Maurice Andre, Wynton Marsalis, Allison Basalm, Raphael Mendez
Jazz Improv: Clifford Brown, Guido Basso, Wynton Marsalis
High Notes: Cat Anderson, Maynard Ferguson, Arturo Sandoval
there are so many greats but I never get tired of listening to Chet Baker ... ever
