Not one of my favorite tunes! For me, Taps represents a melodic clear spot in the insanity, dishonesty and the just pure evil nature of wars past and present. It is truly beautiful in its simplicity and sincerity which stands in stark contrast to the sheer madness and stupidity of armed conflict between the supposedly rational and religious people we claim to be. At least the fallen have a beautiful melody to honor their absence... and our loss.

One of the unsung trumpet heros, Mr. Manny Klein, dubbed Monty Clift's bugle sounds in one of Hollywood's most magnificent productions: "From Here To Eternity" (1953) where the 'Taps' perfectly illustrate the loneliness and grief of the nameless soldier in the din of battle.
Manny also played with Frankie Trumbauer, the Dorseys, Artie Shaw, and other swing greats. See also:

Sad and moving, just like Mr. Clift's performance in FROM HERE TO ETERNITY. I never thought that it might be dubbed. Thank you for the information. I looked it up: Mr Klein also played with one of my favorites, Paul Whiteman.
