Favorite Trumpeters

E V H 5150

Who are your favorite trumpeters?

For me, I would have to say that Maynard Ferguson is the greatest jazz trumpeter I've ever heard. I also like Wynton Marsalis, because he's a very good classical trumpeter. I think he does jazz... correct me if I'm wrong, but I prefer classical to jazz. And he's freaking amazing. Oh, and Rafael Mendez. We saw... some video I forgot what it was, in band class and his technique was freakin' awesome.

So, I found some of Wynton Marsalis' jazz works, pretty kickass stuff. I've been increasing my jazz listening to familiarize myself with the style a little more. It's definitely a change from the stuff I play in my "normal" band class... So, I found some of Wynton Marsalis' jazz works, pretty kickass stuff.

Freddie Hubbard probably does it for me.
Even though you have to love maynards insane range.
Wayne Bergeron, lead trumpeter from gordon goodwins band, now hes really good.
