    CD "Carnival" : Marsalis on a Bach large bell trumpet with the Eastman Wind Ensemble - the modern interpretation of the cornet virtuoso library of a century+ ago (and great Hunsberger arrangements for the accompaniment)

    One piece that everyone should have to listen to at least once in their life. (and they will if they come to my funeral, as I'm having it instead of hymns.)

    Sanctus, from The Armed Man by Karl Jenkins.

    Anything/Everything by Mnozil Brass (if I had to pick just 3 I would pick "Seven", "Magic Moments" and "Irmingard")
    Anything by Doc Severinsen (particularly his "Rhapsody for Now" album)

    And if you want to give brass a rest, load up with AfroCelt Sound System or Loreena McKennitt.

    This is of course in addition to the other splendid suggestions made which I won't repeat, and many more I would make if I took more time to think about it.

    (Note that since the Mnozil stuff I mention comes on DVD you will have to pull out the audio and probably trim out the non-playing bits if you don't want to use your imagination/memory to work out what they're doing at various times during the shows.)


    Okay, just remembered ACSS and LMcK aren't classical, jazz or blues - but I would give them a go.
    More suggestions: Claudio Abbado and the Berliner Philharmoniker doing Janácek's "Sinfonietta" is really good. Orff's "Carmina Burana" done right is another.

    That is correct KT, we all play(ed) jazz, AND all on the "magic flute-trumpet equivalent" the Martin Committee. Just put it to your mouth, place your fingers over the keys, and the instrument plays for you; all that is required is that you put your emotion in on the front end. This is the ultimate in required listening. Just listen to yourself and play! The ultimate requirement.
