    Flugelhorn (combo/cool jazz): Art Farmer, Roy Hargrove, Miles Davis, Chet Baker, Till Bronner

    Nice thread!

    Bud Herseth. First knew of him in 1960 as a 9 year old and was the reason I took up this dang instrument. His sound was mesmerizing and still is to this day.
    I am probably the only Chicago area classically trained trumpeter my age who has never actually met this man. Heard him live, of course, but never talked to him in person.
    Rafael Mendez. Discovered around 1962.
    Doc Severinsen. Discovered around 1965 via the Tonight Show.
    Maynard Ferguson. Discovered around 1966 in high school.

    I really like Thomas Gansch, (Mnozil Brass. I have played his horn) but never consider him a high note guy. He can play high, but he is all around great!

    All of the above... it kind of depends on who I have been listening to recently. They all blow me away (literally as well as figuratively!). I will add one name that the vast majority likely don't know - Norm Rogers. Norm graduated from Berklee and played throughout the Northeast, Las Vegas and Reno over the years. A terrific lead player and soloist who had the most elegant sound I've ever heard.

    I wouldn't consider any of these players exclusively "high note guys", but when it comes to playing in the stratosphere...these trumpeters tend to be my favorites!
