I think he already had the discipline from his family milieu and his classical
training. He played within himself and it was really hard to believe he was
only 18 - musically he was more like 25. There was no doubt in my mind where
he was headed. Of course, there was no doubt in Art Blakey's mind either.
I don't think he took on charity cases. :-)

As a patzer trumpeter I've had the great pleasure of seeing almost all the
greats in person starting with Satchmo and IMHO Wynton ranks right up there.
I'm gonna go out on a limb here and declare Maynard Ferguson as having the
greatest chops. OK, maybe just 'cause I like a big sound. :-)

True that about Art Blakey Ghost. I saw Wynton on two tours with Art and the Jazz Messengers. On the second his brother Branford was in the band as well.
Backstage, at Keystone Korner in S.F., during a break on the second tour, Art was in Wynton's face. His exact words, "you are here to learn boy. If you don't want to listen to me I'll get someone in here tomorrow to replace you!"
