I think we should not forget a trumpet player whose name many people - even trumpet players - don't know, yet he was one of the most influential trumpet players in history:
Anton Weidinger, the guy who made a fully harmonic trumpet viable and who gained popularity for it.
He deserves our praise more than any one since him because he was the first to break ground (and got badly harassed for it).

"McKinley Dorham (he was first known in jazz as 'kinney', but he gave in eventually to the more common, mistaken spelling)
was born in Texas, played horn around the Oakland area after his Army discharge in the early forties, and eventually migrated
to New York."
Thanks to whom ever put Charley Shavers up here, I had not heard of him and looked him up on youtube, love his arrangement of the Man I love.
From the old days:
Often I hear a solo in an old MGM musical and wonder who it was. Like the guy who played such a memorable (if lush) solo in the long dance sequence in An American in Paris. Anyone know who he was?
