I can.

HOWEVER; I almost never use it. It's there, if I need it ... but, in my recollection ... I've occasionally used it as a "closer" / "show-off" note, to elicit the "Ooooh's-&-Ahhh's" from the audience.

I don't need to do that, any longer.

Superfluous.

Back when I played in college I had a consistent G over high C... anything above that was a struggle. Since graduation and the horn pretty much being closeted until alumni reunions, i'm lucky to squeak out an E above C. Meh, life goes on.

Justin Emerich's middle range is a high c.

Who cares who can play high C? Play the doggone music first.

I'm sitting with a serious problem of barely reaching a 3line bflat as a beginner and tried to search for high range comments/advise. I wonder how this pushing the tongue upward is done when seeking higher notes. And somebody says here you can scream the note and "children are FBI". No need for prank video for a good laugh.

I get your point, but if the doggone music requires that C and above, you probably will care.

Seriously, the weekly gigs I do require at least a C above the staff, and frequently up to F#/G. For a four hour gig....and that’s nothing compared to what some guys need to do.

I understand and agree that there’s much more to being a good musician besides range, but consistent (and not just in the first twenty minutes) range to C and above is a necessity for a fair amount of what many people need do, at least outside of concert band.
