    Bon jour! I hope you are all well. This is gonna be a beginners dopey sounding post but.... So, I recently started my journey with the trumpet. In the future I would like to perform shows with backing tracks as I currently play piano and guitar shows around the place and people are always asking me for jazz trumpet and sax players. So currently I donĀ“t know the first thing about jazz. I love the sound and I know some of the more obvious tracks. I would like some help in figuring out a list of songs that are well known so I could play them in the future in a set. At the moment my range goes up to F the last line of the staff. I am still a trumpet baby I know that but it would be great to have these songs to listen to religiously and understand the genre a little better. Thank you very much in advance for your suggestions :) :lol:
