Default Jazz Trumpet

I play trumpet in our school jazz band, and we're supposed to listen to examples of improvizations so that we can learn how to do it...ehh...NOOOO! lol but anyway, can anyone recommend any cd's or artists that might be of use? Thanks! (does anyone else here play trumpet?)

Hey,
I play trumpet in my school's concert and Jazz band. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I can't improvise though, but the written solos in jazz are fun to play.

the confidence to improvise will come the more you play. trust me, i never thought i would get it, but when you understand the structures of the chords and what sounds good there wont be any stopping you...

Cool 09! I love concert band... Random advice (I came crawling up to my band director for help): Randomly play notes that are in the blues scale in the song's key, and people will think you know what you're doing. (blues scale in Bb Concert: C, Eb, F, F#, G, Bb, C) OMIGOSH We had to try out for a solo in a 30's song, Sing Sing Sing (aka the Chips ahoy song). Those people play with the STRANGEST vibratos... They practically slurred partials! I'm done with my rant now. Hehe
