SOME FAMOUS TRUMPET PLAYERS August 4, 1901 New Orleans
July 6, 1971
New York "Satchmo" or "Pops" Jazz Miles Davis ." "What we play is life" Classical music Maurice André Louis Armstrong was born in a poor section of New Orleans known as “the Battlefield” on August 4, 1901.
He was known around the world as Satchmo.
During his career, he:
- developed a way of playing jazz, as an instrumentalist and a vocalist, which has had an impact on all musicians to follow;
-recorded hit songs for five decades, and his music is still heard today on radio and in movies;
-composed dozens of songs that have become jazz standards;
-re-invented the "scat"
-performed an average of 300 concerts each year, all over the world, giving him the nickname “Ambassador Satch,” and became one of the first great celebrities of the twentieth century;
-and appeared in more than thirty movies. A founding father of jazz He learned cornet in the band of a hostel for abandonned color children, named "Home for Coloured Waifs".

At 21 he went to Chicago and was engaged as the second trumpet player by Joe "King" Oliver, in his band "Creole Jazz Band".

In 1925, he created the "Hot Five", his own jazz band and recorded his first recordings. The first "Hot Five" was composed by Johnny Dodds (clarinet), Kid Ory (trombone), Lilian Armstrong (piano) et Johnny Saint-Cyr (banjo).

And after about ten years, he travelled around the world for concerts, and stopped just few years before his death.
(About 30 years of world concerts) history The trumpet, one of the oldest instrument, was invented in Antiquity (the jew "hossa", the greek "salpinx" or the roman "buccina"), it was made of metal.
We discovered two in the grave of Toutânkhamon and drawings on a babylonian bas-relief.

In Middle Ages, the trumpet
was mostly used for conveying orders during wars.

In the 15th century, the runner was invented, then we put finger-plates to have more notes to play in the 18th century, and finally valves in the beginning of the 19th century. Salpinx (greek) technique The trumpet is made of brass and zinc.
It is constituted of a tube, two or three runners, a bell, three valves and a mouthpiece.
There are holes inside the valves and it brings the air in extra tubes, so it changes the note played. The cool jazzman Maurice Andre has earned the reputation of being one of the finest trumpet virtuosos from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. He has made numerous concert appearances and recordings and has inspired many composers. Young Maurice began taking vocal instruction at ten, but two years later, influenced by his father began playing the cornet and sometimes the trumpet.
At the age of 18, Andre began studies at the Paris Conservatoire. In 1953, he began playing professionally in two ensembles, the Lamoureux Concert Association Orchestra and the Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra. In 1963, Andre was asked to sit on the jury of the Munich International Competition, but entered as a candidate instead and captured first prize, thus establishing himself at the age of 30 as one of the leading young trumpeters in the world, and he immediately launched a solo career. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, Andre maintained a heavy concert schedule, playing with many of the leading orchestras and conductors in Europe and the United States and making numerous recordings. In a 1978 interview, Andre estimated that he typically played a 180-concert schedule and had made over 220 recordings up to that time. May 21, 1933

She has been honoured with numerous awards by Classic FM, Gramophone and Echo Klassik and in 2009 she became the first ever Briton to be crowned "Female Artist of the Year" at the Classical BRITs.

Santa Monica (CA) "I know what I've done for music, but don't call me a legend. Just call me He marked the jazz with a high musical sensibility and a capacity to make "round" sounds.
Miles Davis was, with his musical groups, at the forefront of several major developments in jazz music, including bebop, cool jazz, hard bop, modal jazz, and jazz fusion. He began playing the trumpet at 13. He became a local phenomenon and toured locally with Billy Eckstine's band while he was in high school. At the age of 18, Davis moved to New York City where he worked for various bands and enrolled in the Julliard School (Institute of Musical Art). By 1949, his first recording was released, Birth of the Cool.
Davis didn’t try to do anything innovative or daring; he just showed his pure skill and ability to control the music that flowed naturally. With bebop and the rise in jazz improvisation, Miles Davis solidified his own style and gave rise to the West Coast jazz school.
