Trumpet Extraordinary is the thirteenth studio album by virtuoso trumpeter Rafael Méndez. In this album, Rafael is joined by his twin sons, Robert and Ralph, who at the time, were both nineteen years old and sophomore medical students at Stanford University. Prior to entering college, the brothers had travelled with their father and performed with him in 1954 and 1955 throughout Europe. The numbers played by Menendez and his sons consist of trumpet solos and trios selected from the classics and also include pieces composed by Mendez such as "Polka in the Box", the "Tre-Mendez Polka" and "Chunea". The album also contains other pieces such as "The Brave Matador" and "Cara Nome", which are Mendez's own arrangements
