    I'm just starting my comeback after 25 years off the horn, and am looking for some good play-along CD's (that include the background tracks only and the sheet music for the trumpet part) to augment my Arban technical studies. In the "old days" the only option was "Music Minus One". I've found some other options searching Google, but have no idea if any of them are any good.

    Any suggestions for good play-along series/publishers that you enjoy (and where you obtained the CD/sheet music)? I'm less into Maynard/Doc these days, and more into Roy Hargrove, Chris Botti, Miles.... switching from action movies to dramas, I guess ;)

    I bought a load of play alongs by Erik Veldkamp (Veldkamp on this forum - I think). The songs are great, and cheap. It comes with music in Bb and C, recording of the backgrounds only, and a recording of the backgrounds with the solo. There are also previews available on his website.
