Any way you consider BROWNIE is the MAN
Must come after Dizzy no two ways about it.
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. - mikespike
Wynton is the most overrated player out their. NO soul in his playing at all. number 2 are you kidding me? REALLYV1 Comment
No one played the trumpet like him. Her explores every nuance and range of the instrument.
Never stopped experimenting. The best don't, but he incorporated everything he found.
Not a technician but an artist that should never be forgotten.
Most lyrical jazz trumpeter ever. Who knows what he could have accomplished with more years.
The Crown Prince - Never got to be king because his life and talent was short.V1 Comment
Top Ten if not Top 5 player ever. His soul can be heard in every note.
He was the only man who could send those notes into the stratosphere.
He was unbelievable.
He would have to be in top ten
