Maybe not a profound book but a fun one for trumpet players, Trumpet Profiles by Louis Davidson. It's really a compilation of questionaires he sent to a bunch of different famous trumpet players, asking them questions such as, who was the teacher who had the most impact on your playing? Players you admire, artists you admire in other fields, how much did you practice when young, how much now, etc. Trumpeters range from Cat Anderson, Clark Terry and Doc Severinson to Maurice Andre, Bud Herseth and Timofei Dokschitzer. A good bathroom book, you can pick it up at any time and pick any place to start and stop. Anyone else seen this?

First, not a book - but let's not forget the "International Trumpet Guild Journal" Quite valuable
I'm a history buff, and I love Tarr's translation of Johann Ernst Alternburg's "The Trumpeter and Kettledrummer's Art" (1795)
