This sure is not about Wynton anymore...
I think Liads point was that if you were gonna listen to a jazzer play classical, check out Arturo, who he apparently prefers.
What bothers me about this whole discussion is that ultimately, Wynton is either great, or not. That really should not concern us as critics. There is so much joy to be gathered from all trumpet players getting into the mix of music, doing their best, pushing themselves, and letting loose with "joyous sounds," that discussions of this sort should be left to people talking sports or something. However you want to classify Wynton, he s one of us, a special fraternity of men and women who are privileged to make music with the noblest of instruments. Let's celebrate him, and all of us, and find in his playing what we love, and make that our focus!
Couldn't have said it better myself right on!
See my post about the concert tonight, WOW!
As Wilmer mentioned, both of these people are great artists and are his friends and we should respect them for that.
End of discussion.
.........and it's Ed Carroll's fault for the piccolo trumpet I kind of remember Wynton buying a Schilke piccolo from Ed when we were in Mexico.
Wynton is not a Schilke collector is he?
Wynton played a Bach/Schilke Eb on the Haydn Concerto. The cadenza is insane.
Wilmer, give me a reference on that for I want to get a copy.
I would have sent this request via PM but seeing that there are others here who honor Wynton so much that they might like to have this reference also.
Wynton plays the Haydn Concerto on the Schilke Eb with a Bach 239 bell on his very first album of trumpet concerti.
He played the Mozart on a Schilke Picc.
