Wailing Trumpet!!!!   Saturday, March 30, 2002 (11:11 p.m.) 

On the fourth track starting at about 1:15.........OMG! Only John Williams could write such a fantastic part for a trumpet. I'll tell you this, John has his connections, there are not many trumpet players that can play that high. He must have busted a lip doin that bit.
Just a pointer.I love it!

To my knowledge, what you're talking about is a horn set in e-flat, not a trumpet. The highest tone a trumpet can go to is not B2 flat, but it is for french horn. Williams also did that in Star Wars; the main theme is also writen in B flat, and solo horn also goes all the way to B2 flat.

If you both are talking about the trumpet entrance of the main theme at around (according to my cd player) 1:24 it enters on a concert Bb (seventh above middle c) for three trumpets. Not sure what you mean about "highest tone". Theoretically no instrument has a "highest pitch". There are practical pitches beyond which composers will not write in an orchestral context but in solo writing they are not constrained by such limitations. Hope this information helps.

To my knowledge, what you're talking about is a horn set in e-flat, not a
trumpet. The highest tone a trumpet can go to is not B2 flat, but it is
for french horn. Williams also did that in Star Wars; the main theme is
also writen in B flat, and solo horn also goes all the way to B2 flat.

Trumpet or horn, it's just not so important, but I agree it's sensational. As for the player, I can be wrong because it wasn't Boston Symphony, but these main solo brass parts might be performed by Tim Morrison, which works very often with Williams. If You're a fan of big, fanfaring trumpet writing I can reccomend You Trevor Jones' work, especially the Cliffhanger Theme and score from The Mighty.

Dunno if anyone else here has mentioned it so far, but the actual original score soundtrack JP was recorded in the LA studios, and while yes, Tim Morrison does play solo/co-principle trumpet on everything John Williams does now, at the time of this recording the trumpet section (which kicked MAJOR ass!!) was Malcolm Mcnab (1st), Warren Luening, Mario Guarneri and Burnette Dillon. Malcolm Mcnab is and has been the first call legit trumpet in Hollywood for the last 30 years and has played lead for most John Williams scores until the late 90's when Tim Morrison moved to LA after leaving the Boston Pops (while most of the scores Williams recorded in London had Maurice Murphy playing lead trumpet such as the 6 Star Wars films, etc.) Mr Mcnab is a really astounding player, look him up at MalcolmMcnab.com if you're interested, and for the JP score he was probably using either a Eb trumpet or a piccolo trumpet for some of the high stuff (which a lot of the studio 1st trumpeters in LA do these days simply because it makes it much easier to have a beautiful sound on the TOUGH parts they're given to play). Anyhow, hope this info helps (even though it is a couple years late!!)
