I second Ken Butler's Performance Skillz.

I've seen him twice on either coast and he is great.

When i saw him he was self-looping his music with a lexicon jam man, doing his own accompaniment. Plus when he plays that dental dam he sounds like Dizzy Gillespie . Not like just a trumpet but like Diz.

Check out his you tubes

the thing that makes it more than a cute gimmick is he's actually interesting to listen to play. what he can do with a blowing on a strip of dental rubber is quite masterful.
