I know, I know, people woul probably prefer the others over Mangione, but I can't help but like his style of playing. I guess you could say it...Feels So Good... :roll:

Can't remember hearing Chuck Mangione play the trumpet...

Could have swore that thing is called the "Fluegelhorn"...

This isn't very fair...

I cannot pick only one!!!

BTW, I have met Dizzy (shortly before he died) and Arturo...

Both are damn awesome.

You forgot Rick Baptist also...

Your right, he does play the Fluglehorn. My bad. Well, thanks for correcting me. I would hate to go through life being wrong.

I've sort of got used to it since I am always misspelling things. At least the browser I'm using has a spell check, so that helps.

I picked Maynard...but Maynard from the 50s-70s. That's when he was in his prime. Man could he scream.

Yes, but

yes TrumpetMan, but I always felt his improv was missing something. Arturo
really fills that part in for me and he never friggin misses a cord, even if they
change every beat at 200! Arturo takes the cake with me.
