In early jazz, Louis Armstrong was well known for his virtuosity and his improvisations on the Hot Five and Hot Seven recordings. Miles Davis is widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century.
His style was distinctive and widely imitated. Davis’ phrasing and sense of space in his solos have been models for generations of jazz musicians. Maynard Ferguson came to prominence playing in Stan Kenton’s orchestra, before forming his own band in 1957. He was noted for being able to play accurately in a remarkably high register. (Wikipedia)
