Wynton Marsalis.  Trumpet.  Unreal good.  You want to know how good is unreal good?

Flight of the Bumblebee.  On a trumpet.

On.  A.  Friggin.  Trumpet.

Damn near all of humanity can't play that on a piano with ten working fingers.  He plays it ON A FRIGGING TRUMPET!!!!!!

And here's a piece from the album "Joe Cool's Blues", which if you like jazz you need to go pick up now.  Right now.  Yes, right now.
