HA! Good one, Kelly.
Art Farmer for his warmth, lyricism, and “pretty notes” on slow ballads. I’m enjoying transcribing them.
I would also select Ingrid Jensen for her combination of technique and artistry, lyricism, range (from top to bottom), earthy dark sound, and friendliness.

I like the lot of the heavies mentioned, but Clark has been my favorite for the past 40 years. Malcolm McNab has been a favorite for years as well.
Hmm a toss between Maurice André and Timofei Dokshizer... can't really decide.

"I built my staccato like the piano; low register with the warmth of the cello; lyrical melodies like the violin; running notes like the clarinet" - Maurice André
To say who your favorite is would be like trying to choose one's favorite orgasm. They're all good. And different. Why be forced to choose?

Listening has nothing to do with moving your mouth!
There is only one; Clifford Brown! It wasn't just his trumpet playing but his conception that was so fantastic. When I listen to him I keep thinking, "Exactly! Exactly!" When you listen to one of his solos it seems that it is the only possible way to play it.
So far it's Wynton Marsalis...he's good...
