Hi I figured I'd start a thread where everyone shares the names of a few of their favorite jazz trumpet players. I don't want this thread to become a place where people are arguing about who is the "best". I would like it to be a place where people can learn about trumpet players that they have never heard of and find some more music to listen to.
So I'll start it off. One of my favorite jazz trumpeters is Sean Jones. I think he is absolutely phenomenal. I'd recommend any of his albums, but my favorite is his cd "Roots". If you ever get the chance to see him live definitely go, you won't be disappointed. I also really like Freddie Hubbard, Clifford Brown, Miles Davis, Wayne Bergeron, and Dizzy Gillespie. I would recommend Dizzy's cd Free Ride.
