    The master of Classical must be Maurice André. Rumour goes that he never ever played a wrong note in his whole life !
    Jazz Legend Miles has got to be the most important jazz Trumpeteer. Every Jazz man caries his legacy. The man, the genious.
    Wynton is a omni-talented superman.... Can do everything.
    Maynard exploded everytime he performed, but somehow managed to keep his body in one piece while doing it. So all the energy came out the right way. LOL

    Never liked the sound of Nakariakov, but what a technical animal..... Always preferred sound over fast fingers, so few points to Sergei ;-)

    Rafael Mendez

    I love the clarity and choppiness of his notes. I listened to Haydns eb 3rd movement, Listened to Wynton play it and then Mendez. Wyntons notes are nowhere near as 'separated' by the use of the tongue like Mendez. Every note Rafael Mendez plays is ta ta ta ta ta ,fast or slow, its very choppy. SONOFA HORNET!!!!!!!!

    Sorry Had a hornet flying past my face as im typing... BRB its still here!

    3min later...

    I think I pissed the Hornet off by missing it a few times... help?!

    ....

    Saga ended. Wife killed it after I heard a scream because she missed an already irritated hornet. Wow, the life I live.
