Default Trumpet music recommendations?

anything you would say is a piece worth getting? it would be cool to get jazz or rock music, preferrably jazz.

You'll probably find much more jazz selections for the trumpet in terms of sheet music. I don't know what level you play at so I can't really recommend anything.

you ever check out Jaga Jazzist?

the trumpet isn't always the lead instrument but it's always present in their music.

Chuck Mangione (pronounced chuck man-JIOE-nee) - "Feels So Good" (it's a flugelhorn piece though)
Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass Band - "Tijuana Taxi", "Spanish Flea", "Third Man Theme", and "Zorba the Greek"
Cake - "Going The Distance"

Jaga Jazzist...I love that band. (I think CA put me onto them a few years back?)

Why limit yourself to Jazz? Listen to some Northern Soul. Full of great horns played by some top notch jazz musicians.

Examples;

Check out Miles Davis. He normally has a trumpet lead.


Do you plan to continue trumpet past your current grade level? It's a lot of fun, but some pieces get tricky, once you get to college/professional level. (Trumpet is one of my main instruments, btw)

Well, it is really fun and I wish to continue, but I also have to consider that I need braces. All these suggestions are great! I think my brother has a CD of Miles so I can ask him about that and I can see

Well, if you really like trumpet, you can still play trumpet, it just hurts a little at the begining. Now of course, that's up to you and your parents.
