i'm a comeback player who played through high school and then took a couple of decades off and would like to find myself in something other than my local community band. i don't have any illusions about playing jazz on stage [unless i was deep in a big band trumpet section], but before i get too much older there are local ska, reggae and some rock bands that could benefit by adding a mediocre trumpet player. if there was a band looking to add a 2nd trumpet, i'd be OK; but left to my own devices i'd drown.
can anyone direct me to a good resource similar to the ambersold jazz series? or perhaps some charts or sheet music?
