It really depends what you're asking them to do.

You could make arguments for dozens of different players, and the arguments you'd choose to make would depend largely on what you personally value.


I'd have to say there's nothing I've heard played on trumpet that's quite as jaw dropping (for me) as Malcolm McNab's recording of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto.

If I broaden this a bit to "best wind instrumentalist" in the known universe (not sure about the multi-verse), I think James Morrison is clear winner when you add the high of playing he also does on Trombone and Saxophone. I think he could walk up to a small car and make music through the tailpipe if he wanted. If I every make it to Australia, I would love to get a chance to see him perform live. What a talent!!

Isn't this kind of redundant? I don't mean to insult, but there are so many great artists covering Jazz, classical, concert band, etc. and some players are great all around? I like 'em all and have certain things that artists play that I really love listening to. There are lots of great flugelhorn players but Ack Van Rooyen is just awesome. Wynton is from a different solar system good. Pick em all and enjoy the whole package.

Ouch, that is a bit harsh
