Wayne Bergeron & Louis Dowdeswell

Nice arrangement and performance of When You Wish Upon a Star, with trumpeters Wayne Bergeron (former lead player for Maynard Ferguson) and Louis Dowdeswell (another young screamer).

There is a time and a place for the super-high note. Nice harmony, and the high notes fit musically, as opposed to the “high note for the high note’s sake” kind of thing often heard from less musically astute players. This example sounded great, imho.
