Ray Wetzel (September 1924 – August 1951) was an American jazz trumpeter. Critics described him as "greatly admired by his fellow trumpeters". Wetzel played lead trumpet for Woody Herman from 1943 to 1945 and for Stan Kenton from 1945 to 1948. He recorded with the Metronome All-Stars, Vido Musso and Neal Hefti. While with the CharlieBarnetOrchestra, he played trumpet alongside MaynardFerguson, Doc Severinsen, and Rolf Ericson. He also played with the Tommy Dorsey orchestra. While touring with Dorsey in 1951, he was killed in a car crash at the age of only 27.

It is scintillatingly good. Superbrass more than live up to their name.”

Peter Bale

“This is joyous stuff; an intelligent, coherent crossover disc, performed with phenomenal punch. Brilliantly recorded too – what’s the point of assembling a collective of virtuoso brass players if they can’t make your ears bleed ?”

Graham Rickson
