    I hate trumpet music. My favorite non-trumpet-player is Ella Fitzgerald.

    I love trumpet music, but my favorite non-trumpet-player is Joe Henderson.

    For sheer excitement it has to be Maynard. When I got a little older I got really into Freddie Hubbard, what an effin monster he was. Listen to McCoy Tyner's Nubia, I swear Freddie must have had smoke coming out the bell after that solo.
    Someone mentioned Don Ellis earlier and I watched some of the youtube videos from Montreaux. He's been gone so long that younger players may not have even heard of him. I studied for a while with Roy Stevens in the late 70's. He had been Don's teacher and was heartbroken over his death. Long live Don's music.
    Two players who are rarely mentioned on this site are Thad Jones and Warren Vache. Thad was so under rated as a player. Met him once and he was a real gentleman. Warren is so good it's ridiculous.

    Kind of like asking someone to eat one pistachio or one potato chip! Simply can't be done!

    I'm surprised Sergei Nakariakov hasn't been mentioned!

    That's why I went with Chet Baker... I can listen to Chet anytime any day ... alot of other greats I enjoy but can only listen to occasionally ... Winton is a great but takes alot of attention to listen to his jazz ...
