Glad to finally see some young white jazz trumpeters mentioned, let me mention a couple more cats who OWN the instrument…...Till Bronner…german cat…...UNBELIEVEABLE jazz trumepter….I think he won a grammy a year ago or so for “Best Instrumental solo” on the “7 steps to heaven” cut for TAKE 6….....I’m telling this cat is amazing…..

Let me throw another name out there as well…..Gerald Presencer, british jazz trumpeter…...another MF!! 

 

I am a jazz trumpeter myself….My favorite jazz trumpeter of ALL time is Freddie Hubbard….He was THEE MAN!!

 

Now I dig Roy Hargrove, Sean Jones and Tom Williams, Marcus Printup and some others…

 

But these 2 cats are in a league by themselves…..go to youtube and check them out everyone…

I wonder if you’ve all considered this young dude. He’s a friend of Wynton’s…
