Lee Loughnane, because he gets to blow beside Jimmy Pankow. How cool is that?!
May I put my $.02 in for Bobby Hackett? Have loved him since I was a kid and Dad played his music on the stereo.

I'm sure all these other cats are great but I'm putting in time to make ME a better player. They already know how to play.
Changes from week to week. Listening and learning with Marcus Wyatt at the moment. Good stuff.
Can't beat a shot of Don Cherry.
go get it.
With a classical upbringing and training Maurice Andre, however I listen to all genres and enjoy them all.
I can't choose just one, but I'd add Timofei Dokshitser to the guys listed already.
Trumpet players like Harry Glantz, Malcolm McNab, Chris Martin, Bud Herseth and Tom Stevens need to be mentioned as well. There is a quality there of musicianship with daily performances with no room for error, while taking risks in the performance in which every nuance is subject to examination. Play jazz and lead are very different from holding a orchestra chair or being first call for a studio gig. Both have great players, but for my money it is the classical world that excites me the most.

I could listen to Chet Baker or Clifford Brown all day. Lee Morgan and Miles for most of the day.
