Gentleman: I agree that all of the musician mentioned are great musicians. However, my favorite trumpet players are those with great technical skill and sound production in the context of a whole. I note that many of the individuals mentioned are "mostly" soloists in the context of performance, and not actual ensemble players. My preference goes to the ensemble players that enhance the group, even when performing passages that feature the color and timbre of the trumpet. Think of Glantz in Pictures or the Pines of Rome; Stevens is Also Sprach Zarathusa, and the entire section with their unisons and octaves; or even McNab with all of the solos in support of the movies that you have heard. Great players, with ability to reproduce these entrances every time; and then again one more time.
