Giacomo Rizzolatti

Dr. Rizzolatti is an Italian Neurophysiologist and professor at the University of Parma in Italy. He discovered unique neurons in the frontal and premotor cortex while doing research on the neural representation of motor movements in monkeys. Unlike other motor neurons, these neurons not only fired when engaged in planning a motor movement, but also through the observation of a related movement in another person or other monkey.

Arkady Shilkloper goes places that horn players aren't supposed to go without a net, map, seat belt, crash helmet, overhead air support, and a note from their mothers. 

And he does so with extraordinary ease and musicality. 

I think maybe nobody ever told him "Jazz playing on horn is very difficult, and probably not natural"

I'd walk a camel a mile to hear this guy.
