THAT's how high notes should sound!
The former touches my soul, but the latter tickles my loins.
Music to my ears. Thanks.

So what you're all saying is that how high notes should sound depends on the context in which they're played. Gee, who would have thought...
Wait, wouldn't that also apply to middle and low notes? Hmmm.......
Nice high notes in context (for those not patient enough to listen to 3 minutes of nice music, the high stuff starts at about 3.05):

Of course, the best option is to go for nice context; then high, low, middle, number of notes per second, none of that matters much anymore:

Everyone here knows that Bill Chase and Maynard Ferguson had nothing to do with that "Superman" clip, right???
It's Walt Johnson, a guy that knows a thing or two about how high notes sound!
