Some random pocket trumpet that's fun to mess with
"If you have to ask what jazz is...man, you'll never know."
"If a composer could say what he wanted to say in words, he wouldn't bother trying to say it in music."
"And those who danced were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."
Papa Loves Mambo... Modified and added a second trumpet part to it and my students and I are having a blast with it.

Great thread! Thanks for starting it.
I've been practicing two solos for church--the second movement of Eric Ewazen's Sonata for Trumpet and Piano and Sergei Rachmaninoff's Vocalise. In addition to these solos, I also am practicing the Basie-Nestico lead trumpet book, the Thad Jones lead trumpet book, and a lead part on a Buddy Rich chart. I had so much fun with lead trumpet tonight.
Listen to this sample: Michael Haydn Concerto for Trumpet - II (Allegro) -
I'm probably going to be lame on this, but anything to get my chops better... The brass band I am in is keeping me fresh, and I am looking to find some more playing time. My music guy at the church is finding some fanfare stuff for Easter. and lastly some Arbans, Schlossberg, Clarke, and other various stuff.

Zelda, Thome Fantasie, lots of Arban Clarke and Schlossberg, los of "esay" lyrical stuff like Myfanwy, Ashokan Farewell (I need a Flugel), All in the April Evening, Deep Harmony. (All relatively easy but with bits that can bite you if you let off for an instant. For example Ashokan Farewell becomes Rose of Trallee if I don't watch the phrasing) My teacher wants me to start on "The Debutant" (eek).

Lalo's Cello Concerto, Beethoven's Egmont Overture, Dvořák's 8th Symphony and Bruckner's 4th Symphony, practising for a couple of concerts in April and June on top of my normal church stuff.
Just had first rehearsal for a new arrangement of Ravel's Bolero. No drums, four trumpets playing the background rhythm very softly, with a distortion guitar screaming the melody... weird, but effective. My own arrangement... yes, you may try to shoot the arranger, but you will have to hit hard first time. Or else I'll shoot back!!!
A group of Harrelson clients met Friday night at Jazz Central to play some jazz duets with Jason.
The event was put on by Harrelson Trumpets and Jazz Central.
It was a really good time, I got to play with and listen to some very cool folks.
Here is a video with Jason and Mark Bobnick, who is a really talented player who toured with Doc a couple years.
The video from myself and Jason:
Stop acting like someone shot your dog.
I played a dance gig Saturday with a quartet (pn, drms, ts, tpt). Definitely NOT a jazz gig, just playing tunes for dancers mostly well over 70. I've been reviewing Arnold Jacobs lately, so I used it to focus on my "song and wind" to play it pretty and tell a story.
