    Clifford Brown with Strings, Chet Baker Big Band, Al Hirt Live at Carnegie Hall (w/Gerald Wilson Orchestra), Miles at Montreaux, Gil & Cartas "En Mi Corazon" w/Doc Severinsen as a sideman (new and brilliant), any Rob McConnell album w/Guido Basso soloing, anything from Jack Sheldon, any Ellington, Basie, Dizzy, Herman, Kenton cds, "early" (60s) Maynard, any Don Ellis cds, and to bring you up to date something by Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band, Tom Kubis's band, Rich Wetzel's great band out of Washington, etc., etc., etc. There's so much to choose from!

    Trumpet Evolution....Arturo Sandoval.
    It has a compilation a little bit of everything.

    Unforgivable Blackness........Wynton Marsalis, wow, this is incredible.

    Interesting note thank you. Its pretty common I believe at least at my library, they know that especially kids my age borrow them for iTunes. Is it illegal if its only for a personal collection and not ever used for profit?

    If I had extra money to spend, I be sure to remember that Jazz is far wider than the trumpet. I believe our listening should include as much as possible. Charlie Parker: Confirmation, Charles Mingus:Ah Um, Monk: Straight No Chaser, Joe Lovano: Trio Fascination, Louis Armstrong: Hot Fives and Sevens, Count Basie: Atomic Swing, Duke Ellington:'Anything by him', Ornette Coleman:The Shape Of Jazz Too Come, Herbie Hancock:Cantaloupe Island, Frank Sinatra: 'Anything' (Listening to singers is a great way to learn phrasing). To name but a few. I know this is a trumpet forum, but I listen to as much as I can, we can learn something different from everything we listen to. I have left out more trumpet players as I'm sure you will get many suggestions over here.

    You might want to check out The Tonight Show Band with Doc Severensen. Both CD's are just about as hot as it gets for big band. Also, MF Live at Jimmy's.
    Although its hard to find, the CD's Taking Notes and Taking Notes II is very good too. Someone mentioned Trumpet Evolution by Sandoval and I'd second that. His version of the song Maynard Ferguson will make the hair on your neck stand up.

    Newer Count Basie CDs...

    Live At El Morocco.

    Swing Shift. A great tune there..."Four For Basie" featuring all four trumpets, each soloing twice.

    Both CDs feature that great Basie trumpet section with Mike Williams on lead and Scotty Barnhart on the jazz book.

    Yes, because you don't legally own those CDs so you no longer have a right to have the music from them.
