Trumpeteer Videos

Trumpet Kings is a blog dedicated to videos of trumpeteers, mostly jazz but there are a few classical ones. On the companion youtube channel there are 184 videos. These are some of my favorite things: Wynton Marsalis - Riot, Dizzy Gillespie - trumpet battle, Maynard Ferguson - Round Midnight, Louis Armstrong - C'est Si Bon, Miles Davis - No Blues, Ray Anthony - Harlem Nocturne, Booker Little - Minor Mode Blues, Ingrid Jensen - Foxy Trot and Sergei Nakariakov - Bach's Air.

Oh, and there are occasionally videos of people playing other instruments.

No Michael Balzary!? He was a child prodigy before he strapped on a bass and a sock...

hehehe maynard ferguson, definitely a trumpet king. I often find myself smiling or laughing when he goes of the charts, like when someone yells inappropriately.

No Don Cherry either; the free crowd seem to be a little lacking in love. Still, good to have so much collected in the one place – ta, Kattullus.
