Phenomenal Trumpet Solo

This is Maynard Ferguson, recorded some time in the 1960s. Ferguson, who died in 2006, was best known for his incredible range with the trumpet, easily able to hit notes more properly in the range of a piccolo. As a teenager playing trumpet in the high school band in the mid-70s, this man was my trumpet playing role model. Enjoy.

Maynard was awesome! He played at my HS in Montana back in the early '80s.

I enjoyed that. When I was a young musician, and thought I would live forever I thought Maynard would live forever too. It was refreshing to hear his sound. The freedom of the air distinguishes earlier musics from todays music which is good but often it is weighed down.

It appears strange given down and dirty gaming's lovehate connection with the string, both using old game titles or perhaps versions will no longer wished as a form of forex set to purchasing a, and also resenting the actual markup and then applied to these utilised online games.
