The Top Ten

1
Clifford Brown

2Wynton Marsalis
He really is the best. He could win any trumpet battle against anyone, and it's hard to deny that. His sound is so much more mature than anyone else's. He's the Michael Jordan of the Trumpet.

3Miles Davis

4Dizzy Gallespi
Not a technician but an artist that should never be forgotten.

5Louis Armstrong
Why on EARTH isn't this great man first? Truly beautiful to listen to and watch; he puts his heart and soul into Jazz music. He clearly loves every second and it shows.

Lee Morgan is pretty damn good!
