Fruzzinoid : I started crying valve oil.

Andrew Plays : Only a trumpet player can truly recognize how awesome that was

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

Allen Yu : Legend has it that he went up another octave, but they couldn't hear it, so they asked him to go back down.

Bailey Bradshaw : most of them have no clue what they just witnessed

postjm9 : Lots of videos of trumpet players playing high notes on YouTube. But this is the difference between making the instrument scream and making it sing.

Connor Buckley : Damn...he takes it up an octave, and then he still takes it up another octave

MPTX : Who else got chills when he played the high parts.

boogyyman : Me: oh i can do that. * 1:31 goes by* NOPE NEVER MIND

Ella Grace : I play trumpet and I would have popped a blood vessel trying to go this high TBH.

mikejohnsb : Can anybody agree that, this sounds WAY better than ANYONE who has sang the National Anthem ? I agree

Kamau As-Salaam : It's not the fact that he can hit it....but the testicular fortitude to take a chance and do it...Pure confidence lol. If I could do this, I don't even know if I'd take the chance my god.

Darryl Mann : Wow. I played trumpet years ago. When he hit the high high note I cried.

boogyyman : RIP his lips

rtsdrums : That look at the end was into a different dimension. He only had a single O2 left in his head.

Tim Warring : Literally the best national anthem ever

qazaqwert123 : My mouth hurts just watching this.

CooLuke : Needed a detox after Fergie

Fishhunter2014 : ALL RISE FOR THE MASTER!! (trumpet)

joe s : If you have played the trumpet before, you realize how impossible those last notes were to hit

Rey Hernandez : On the day of the lord, God will tell Gabriel to let this man blow the horn instead

DeebO : When you are listening to something so exceptional, that you can't do anything but laugh....

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.

saruni :3 : God I wish I could play like this. I feel like the majority of the people in that stadium have no concept of the greatness that they had witnessed.

Velour Connoisseur : 122 people hate our freedom octaves

saladofdoom42 : Having defected to the US from Cuba, he loves this country like no other musician could, and man does it show.

Dancing Spiderman : I thot Arturo was gonna hit a V-8... ... but he played a Double-C instead.

Thom Pastor : This musician, Arturo Sandoval is a giant in the professional world. It is very poignant to note that (many of) the viewers of this video and the thousands of Orange Bowl fans present on that day had no idea of the breadth of talent they were treated to. Every week people watch TV programs such as The Voice, and America's Got Talent and become hypnotized by the malaise. Advice to television producers: You need only roam around the practice halls of Berklee, Curtis, Juilliard, Eastman and other music citadels. Those places are blistering with serious talent. As a country, our appreciation of people who spend five and six hours a day for years honing their gifts is sorely neglected.

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

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.

Gwyn Lord Of Cinder : Hmm I wonder where my embouchure went when I attempted this?

Vaughn1 : 1:44 the momment you have to go to the bathroom XD

horrorfanpodcast : What even is that note

Peace Out Man : 'Merica

saladofdoom42 : My GOD, that tone quality.

Doug Burger : Only the Trumpet Players appreciate what they just saw.

Jose Antonio Rodriguez Bacallao : I can not understand how 50 peoples dislikes this perfomance. Arturo Sandoval is the best trumpet ever. This was a perfect perfomance, thanks god for Arturo Sandoval.

Gerardo Avila : A Cuban exile paying tribute to the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave!  What an amazing performance.  Best trumpet player in the world!

jsm100ful : To Those Who did not like the video do not know anything of a trumpet

Chevy Racing : He had incorrect form his pinky was in the crook smh

Jason Carter : I almost died at 1:35 .It was soooo freaking awesome

Nata the trumpet queen c': : that was the most amazing part of the game 😂 wow

Bruno BlogDeCodigo : Well done, Arturo Sandoval!

Kevin Way : All of the non-musicians here have no idea what extreme talent they just witnessed. There are plenty of professional trumpet players that only dream of hitting notes that high with such good tone. Wow.

COACH V : Proud Cuban American Here.

sergio salazar salazar : I bet you after he was like "warm up"

Zach Mejia : Im a Trombone player.... I'm crying watching this. I can "fake scream" on the Trombone but will probably never play this ;(

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.

goodstrudel : All of us trumpet players are like " ;w; "

Savion Mcglone : I keep replaying this video😂
