Hello Brad D,
The sound in my head at the moment is Big Band Swing.I am a member of a Big Band and we play arrangements from the Swing era. The Trumpet parts have transcribed solos and I use these in my practice at home, both for the joy of the stye and the technical difficulties that are to be overcome.I also like to listen to the lyrical way the great players ,Joe Newman, Cat Anderson ,Ziggy Ellman,Harry James and others from those days performed.Solos on In The Mood,American Patrol,Tuxedo Junction and something way out there,the Trumpets on Glenn Miller’s The Spirit is Willing, great examples of the trumpet played brilliantly.The wonderful solo on Glen Millers Stardust for free flowing beauty and good one for interval practice, Bobby Hackett’s Solo on String of Pearls.
Thanks for the Forum Greg, and all who participate,and I hope I have given as much as I have received.

Regards ,
Peter from Wollongong.
