Max Milliken : only the band nerds understand how incredible that was :)

Survivrs : God I love listening to this when he goes up into that higher register. I only dreamed about doing that. I spent my high school years listening to Maynard Ferguson, Bill Chase, and Herb Alpert, all incredible musicians with a trumpet. I got to see Ferguson twice in high school. That was a long time ago.

horrorfanpodcast : What even is that note

Jay Surles : That was great, but I wish he had held out the last note a little longer, that would have made it unbelievable!

Danny45635 : I can squeal double C's on good days. But it's nowhere near what you would call a note. This is just amazing.

DSA Music : My highest is a G above top C on a 'good' day. That double C is INSANE!

Think890 : Done and Drops the Mic

Mark Luhn : There's something so unique about Arturo - in the lower register, it almost sounds like he's going to lose the pitch sometimes.  It isn't the unwavering intonation that he shows when he gets up really high.  When he gets up to the upper register, it's like the most crystal clear sound you've ever heard.  Very interesting and fantastic musician.

Jeff Rocha : Maynard Ferguson is smiling from heaven when he hears anyone play high notes on a trumpet!

Gonzalo Alpizar : I totally taught him that
