    That's your opinion....... Wynton is a fantastic player. Lee Morgan was a fantastic player. Diz was a fantastic player. Doc is a fantastic player. Maurice is a fantastic player. Tommy Stevens is a fantastic player. Arban was a fantastic player.....and what about Valentine Snow? His name alone does it for me.
    There is no good, better and best in art........they are ALL GREAT.

    Re: wynton marsalis vs. all other trumpet players

    thank you oh wise one... lol... many people say that wynton doesnt feel emotion... i would disagree, however there is one thing that i dont like about his style, and thats that he seems to be so good that when he solos (improv), i just dont feel it the same way i do when i hear other players like Diz and co... he is so accurate that is bugs me... yes i agree with wiseone... they are all great, and i have to say that i love Wyntons sound, and every thing about him, the only thing that bugs me is his soloing... even in that vid on you tube when he is soloing over Cherokee circular breathing, and playing insane runs and slurring, there is something about it that is just to good... ive never seen him mess up... even in the video when he is improv battling with that spectacular trombonist out his window... i dont get it... now you listen to miles, maynard and others, and you hear humanity... when you listen to wynton...? idk... one piece i like tho that is showy and just hilarious is zig zag by allen vizzutti... sorry... listen to it... its fun... that shows off allens skill... and if you want to see it, i think there is a video of him doing like 5 octaves in 8 seconds... and this guy plays on yamahas.... these men are all great, but my preferences are the players who are less know, the guys in the big bands who can solo like crazy... thats my opinion, if you can solo, youre top in my book...

    I think Wynton himself could defeat the Pittsburg Steelers and the Pittsburg Penguins, himself, at once, in one game. So there.

    Wynton is human. I have seen him sweat. I have also seen his dedication to the music.
    He was my assistant on one of the Brooklyn Philharmonic tours. That means he got to play a couple tough works sitting in the hot seat. Some of the Prokofiev piano works will make you sweat.

    I of course have not had the honor of seeing his dedication first hand, but i dont doubt it ive read his book, and i dont doubt his skill... he is the reason i love trumpet, every thing he does is great... its just his improv... he is an amazing artist, but i just dont get him...

    It's not emotionless, he is just such a brilliant player that the horn doesn't impair his ability to express whatever he is feeling.
    Listen to Live at the Village Vanguard Disc 7. If you don't get out of your chair and start saying 'amen' then II can't help you. That is some of the most emotional playing on record.

    Re: wynton marsalis vs. all other trumpet players

    All I know is I was working in the wood shop, cranking "Unforgivable Blackness" and I had to put the tools down and I just lost it in dance(jammin!). Then, I looked out the window, outside, there is my wife!...; could here the music, and she was dancing, too, with my younger son, outside!
    It was so joyous,and goofey!!!! One of those moments I'll never forget!

    Oh, which song was it? "Jack Johnson Two-Step", lucky for me it's less than two minutes long!

    I would highly recommend this "Unforgivable Blackness" album, I LOVE it.

    I guess the thread owner has some research to do. Claiming that any one player is best just shows a lack of education.
