The list was NOT compiled by myself,
so I cannot meddle with it.

Here are some great Trumpet players which YOU would have liked
to have seen up on the above list. I agree, there are far too many under-appreciated or over looked musicians & those who play in the studio shadows,
as well as a new younger generation following in the foot-steps of the greats
