http://www.maynardferguson.com/ For those who don't know him, Maynard was one of the best. He was, without a doubt, the most influential jazz trumpet player on the planet for many years. My jazz band had the opportunity to open for his big band on a couple of occasions when I was in school. I don't think you'll find a jazz trumpet player out there that would not list him as an influence. I have well over 25 of his albums. I guess it's the big Birdland in the sky now. I'm kinda bummed out now :grumpy: To quote someone from MF's forums: "Gabriel is now playing second."
