5.0 out of 5 stars Worlds Greatest Trumpet Player August 22, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Trumpet Magic is truly the appex of Mr. Mendez's Classical recording carreer. Paganini's Moto Perpetuo is a piece written for Violin, but Mr. Mendez takes the trumpet to another level in recording this violin masterpiece. The first thing you notice is his uncanny ability to triple tongue, and the second thing you notice is that he doesn't stop to breath for four minutes and twenty one seconds. His circular breathing technique allows him to breath as he plays. Moto Perpetuo is the "crown jewel" in Mr. Mendez's illustrious recording career, and Trumpet Magic is the CD that best exemplifies his classical abilities and incomperable virtuosity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest trumpet player ever May 12, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Mendez surpasses all other trumpet players in every area. His technical mastery and the brilliance of his tone are far superior to that of any trumpet player ever recorded. Every song played by Mendez is played brilliantly and with flawless style. I recommend this cd to any fan of great music.

I used to listen to Rafael on my grandfathers 78 rpm record player in the 60's. I listened to it over and over. I later became a horn player. I am so glad this music came out on CD so I can enjoy it again.

Mendez is second to non for his trumpet playing. Just listening to Motto Perceptio is incredible. Being a trumpeter from the past I really appreciate his style and techniques.
