NO trumpet player, IMHO as a trumpet player, ever played like Al Hirt! I 
heard him in person at "The Cloisters" in Hollywood in 1961...several 
times.....I as sitting about 10 feet away from that bell of his trumpet, and 
couldn't believe my ears! That was about the time he was appearing on the 
Dinah Shore Chevrolet TV show. (See the USA, in your Chevrolet!)
I still have about 6 of his LPs stacked away. If I listen to them now, I'll 
never want to pick up my horn again...
Warm regards,

Because I play trumpet, I envy no one.
