The Top Ten
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. - Britgirl
Come on. Pops will always be Number 1. Remember what Dizzy said: "No Louis, no me."
HE'S LOUIS! DUH! Come on people, he basically founded jazz trumpet.
Pure soul innovation and eminence -and, of course, the inventor of modern jazz.V 3 Comments
Any way you consider BROWNIE is the MAN
Must come after Dizzy no two ways about it.
Brown could connect phrases so well
Early Miles - pure technique.
Miles = Pure Genius!
How can anyone be ahead of Davis? Even Sachmo is a close second never had the impact Davis had
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? REALLY
This guy played the trumpet like while having great dance skillsV 2 Comments
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.
So much meaning into his playing... usually kicks everyone's ass (at least 80/85% of the time)
The Crown Prince - Never got to be king because his life and talent was short.V 1 Comment
Really very expressive and controlled his horn well. Especially with soft sounds.
Davis could not hold a candle to Baker
Such a great singing voice as well
He is simply the best.
He changed the way people play trumpet forever! He should be number 1 or at least in the top ten!
No other trumpet player could play such high notes with such control. He was incredible.
I miss him. Saw him many times and always left satisfied.
He was the only man who could send those notes into the stratosphere.
He was unbelievable.
He would have to be in top ten
