    I believe that Aebersold Volumes 1 and 2 have some good examples for you. I learned on those two volumes. You could also check out Volume 42, but I've never used it. Sounds like it could be good though.

    This is my first post here, so hello everyone!

    I'm a music teacher (piano, guitar and voice) and one of my specialities (or what I love the most!) is teaching improvisation.

    This is a bit of a plug (and I hope I don't offend any of you guys and girls) but I have a blues backing track website that I've just finished. There are 14 blues backing tracks, each in different keys, styles and tempi - you can download/listen to some examples of horn solos over the recordings there. It's a really simple site - I'm a better musician than I am web designer, honest!

    I basically wrote the blues tracks so I can free-form teach improvisation in my lessons - the tracks average 20 minutes and provide a great backdrop for teaching the blues!

    There are some more horn friendly keys in there, but even so - some of you guys might like to play over the F# blues!

    You can let me know direct if you want to sample 3 minute versions of the tracks... :-)

    Sorry again if I've offended anyone with this 'plug' but Mevenden, and anyone else, I hope you enjoy the backing tracks - I made them for students and teachers alike!

    All the best
