10 Of The Most Famous Trumpet Players Of All Time

trumpet-player

The trumpet is played over a whole range of musical genres. These include classical and modern forms of music, but the most famous trumpet players inevitably hail from the world of jazz, both traditional and modern.

The reason behind this is perhaps the nature of jazz music, which makes ample use of the full range of sound that the trumpet can produce.

Having said that. It would be unfair to ignore the contribution that the trumpet has made in other spheres such as rock, blues, pop, and rap music.

However, since we are limited by our space and your time, we asked our Life Daily team to make their selection of famous trumpet players only from the field of jazz musicians.

Inevitably such a list is bound to be subjective since we had to choose from many hundreds of talented men. Interestingly, the fact is that most jazz trumpeters turned out to be male. Whilst there are today a small number of women playing jazz trumpet, their names are only really known to dedicated jazz aficionados.

Cast your eyes over our selection and see if your favorite is among them:

1. Louis Armstrong (1901 – 1971)
