    Hey since I got the extra money, I'm thinking about buying some jazz cds.
    I would greatly appreciate names of some specific cds or albums by some artist, not just the artist in general(there be too much to buy!)
    So far I've made a list of couple of Miles Davis cds, some Harry James(NOT ENOUGH!! NEED MORE :-P), and some big bands like Benny Goodman.

    I like all types of trumpet playing, but looking for more of the big band Jazz genre not classic, and love the ones with the sweet and complicating solos.

    Greatly appreciate anymore suggestions!

    Clifford Brown & Max Roach is probably my favorite jazz CD of all time. Clifford is a monster
    Charms of the Night Sky - Dave Douglas. Very different than the big band, but one of my favorite players.
    For fun,
    Sex Mob Does Bond, the bandleader of Sex Mob is a slide trumpeter (Steven Bernstein)

    A few tips here. To save money, go to your local library. I've gotten probably 10MB worth of free, legal music. I go through the CD section and just take anything that looks interesting. From classical to just about anything, you can find it there. I've gotten tons of Count Basie (another band to get recordings of for you) Duke Ellington, Miles, Dizzy, Chet Baker, Freddie Hubbard, Wynton, you'd be surprised what you can find.

    So check it out, you can get some great music at a great price, FREE!

    If you want a good jazz trumpet selection get Chris Botti Live in Boston. It has some great jazzy kind of music on it along with some solos and then some bigger band feels to it. Its on amazon though.

    What a great idea. I'm off to the library.

    As a word of warning (in addition to trumpet, i'm heavily interested in computers/digital info/etc.)
    To borrow the CDs is completely legal (and listen to them),
    but to rip those CDs onto your computer is shaky. It is legal while you are still in possession of those CDs, but not afterwards.
    You probably will never get prosecuted, but...
    but I've never done that and I know no one who ever had either :roll:

    I wouldn't sweat to much about it. I doubt they would prosecute you for the sole reason that you ripped a few songs off a CD from the library. If they would, I don't see you getting into to much trouble over it.
