Chas is right. Put the horn of your choice in his hands and there is a ridiculous chance he will sound amazing on it!
Notice the "JK" after the comment?

No! Most definitely a centre forward.
Ok, now here's my question... is this playable in a concert?
I've heard the CD and seen the sheet music to that Tchaikovsky violin concerto. It is without a doubt to me, the epitome of trumpet ability to be able to play that piece. To even be able to play one page of it would mean a whole hell of a lot for anyone. This is not diminishing of anything because it is so with most or all recordings, but it's clear that a lot of it is highly spliced together and he changes trumpets a good bit. That's fine though, because it's incredible that he's simply playing this stuff. Please don't anyone take this the wrong way but I just wonder if it's doable in a one shot concert type situation, even for him. Has it been performed?
McNab's website claims that it has...
And the Bach? No one has mentioned it. I wrote MM to ask who played second trumpet on the Bach and his response: "Unfortunately I could not find anyone who would work with me and I was forced to play both parts myself."
Now that's a feat. It is so seamless that I picture him playing two horns at once.
He was at West Point, btw, and it never ceases to impress me how many over-the-top artists began their post-high-school careers as military musicians.
Nothing is more contagious or tenacious than music. Once you are exposed it gets inside you and you can never get rid of it. It is also non-discriminating. It can be Ride of the Valkyries, In a Gadda da Vida, the Jeopardy 15 second thinking tune, your most disliked commercial jingle - it doesn't matter. Once triggered, off you go, like it or not.
