I posted this on TH too, but I think I will probably get a good deal of different answers here, so I'm gonna post here too. I've been thinking about trumpet players who can play the snot out of anything, yet are not typically the ones in the spotlight. Could be classical or jazz, but I mostly know classical players.
I was listening to recordings of the Met Opera Brass, and I have to say that David Krauss probably falls under the category of severely underrated. I would love to know some of your suggestions so that I can expand my repertoire!
