Jazz: Sax vs Trumpet, Part 2

Posted in music by adeli on June 17, 2009

Recently, I put out the question “Which instrument the sax or the trumpet is more important to jazz?” Take a look at the following videos, and then cast your vote. Please send me your comments and suggestions on other great jazz performances and artists.

On the sax, Paul Desmond with Dave Brubeck on the piano – “Take Five”

Miles Davis on trumpet – “Tutu”

Or is a combo better?

Miles Davis on trumpet, John Coltrane on the sax – “So What”

Cast your vote!
