Same Instrument, Different Sound

Below are my three favorite trumpeters; Louis Armstrong, Herp Alpert and Harry James.

They all all very talented, and they each have their very own sound. Can you tell the difference? (I wanted to do the same song for all of them so you could really hear the difference, but Herb isn't in the same era as Harry and Louis. So here are some great videos of each of them.)

What do you think? I love being able to tell an artist or band by the way they play their instrument. It makes me feel like I really know them.
