Since MF Horn 4 & 5 has already been mentioned, I'm going to have go with MF Horn 1.
Fats Navarro- and Tadd Dameron complete recordings.(a double cd set)
Chet Baker-with the Gerry Mulligan band
Miles Davis-Kind of Blue, walkin', Miles smiles
Kermit Ruffins-Live at Vaughan's
Great inspiration for me for 50 yrs. Have many recordings,etc.
Agree, Have enjoyed them for many years.
"How big can you get?" by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. Glen Marheveka aka "the kid" is an incredible player. And Tony Bonsera is no slouch, another awesome player.
Lots of great choices but I can't believe no one has mentioned Birth of the Cool.
Harry James-don't know which album, but it had Sleeply Lagoon on it (this made me want to play trumpet in the first place)
Rafael Mendez "Trumpet Magic" because of Moto Perpetuo (the first time I heard it is still stuck in my mind, haven't picked my jaw off of the floor yet after some almost 40 years)
Hakan Hardenberger "Art of Trumpet"-kinda takes you through the whole history of classical trumpet
+17 on MF 4/5 Live at Jimmy's-my favorite MF of all time, great jazz, great trumpet, nothing but pure music on this one
Freddy Hubbard "Red Clay"-not his greatest album, but its stuck in my head because I listened to it over and over in high school
Jonah Jones on Muted Jazz.
Jonah is one of the most underated players ever, and one of the best ever.
He puts on a clinic here, especially on Undecided.
And by the way....he uses a REAL bucket mute.

If we're being limited to just one album regardless of genre I'd have to go with "Tutti's Trumpets" with its stellar line-up including Conrad Gozzo ("A Trumpeter's Prayer"), Mannie ("Gomots") Klein, Uan Rasey, Shorty Sherock, Pete Candoli, Joe Triscari playing some of the most beautiful trumpet arrangements ever written. Truly an inspiring album which I'm sure is in most of your collections. If you don't have it, you owe it to yourself to get it; most likely you will not be disappointed.
Wynton Marsalis, "Live at Blues Alley"
