What is fascinating to me is that Mendez's father was able to help him restore his playing when an array of top pedagogues could not. Sounds like pedal tones where the answer for him but I wonder where Mendez's father got the idea for that? Where does Stamp fit into the picture, was he a student of Maggio?

Well, there was Arban in europe. Clarke mentioned a couple other cornetists in writings I have seen. Just recently I read a letter he wrote to a brass manufacturer and Clarke was not favorable about the trumpet or its place in band literature. And, particularly with regards to "ever" being a solo instrument. Glad we have Clarke's legacy and glad we know how the trumpet does pretty well today, as does the cornet. There is a cornet solo played by Phil Smith on youtube with a New York state brass band. Phil, of course, kicked axx and took telephone numbers with the solo but it demonstrates the beauty of both horns. Ole Edvard Antonsen of Norway also has cornet solos on YouTube.
