I've just started playing trumpet. I've been self-teaching for about 3 months, using the original "A Tune A Day" book one, and I'm about half way through. My range is something like 2 octaves (I can hit the 5th harmonic ok, after that it gets a bit sketchy).
I would really like to get into playing some more jazz and funk styles, but Tune A Day is pretty classical/folky. I've tried looking up some well known jazz trumpet music, but most of it requires quite high register to play, and I'm not confident enough with transposing to make it an enjoyable experience trying to play this stuff.
What are your recommendations for getting into jazz and funk playing styles, for a beginner? What books should I read? Which musicians should I listen to, which music should I try and play? What online resources exist?
