I'm looking for some kind of accompaniment(spelling?) that I can play along with for practicing solos. I play trumpet. Does anyone know of a website where I can find such a thing for free? I've found things with MIDIs, but it drives me bananas to play with that after a while, so if you know where I can find actual background music, that would be appreciated.


Yes, I know I can't spell.


I can give you any of this music if you will help me out with this :).
Just put your email in the post, and I will send it to you.

Only ask for music if you show me where I can find play-alongs.
I hate it when random ppl just post and ask for music!

Get any of the Jazz Improvisation Series Approaching the Standards by Dr. Willie L. Hill Jr. (It's not free, but it's great.)

In case anyone else needed anything like this, I found a good site with a lot of these tracks.
are some good-sounding free mp3's that work for my purpose.

You can play along with jazz standards such as Take 5, Summertime, Take the 'A' Train, Misty, Johnny One Note, and How High The Moon. As far as where to get the music to jam to, I think your best bet is playing alongside recordings. Hope this helps!

I've had difficulty finding things like this too. I've resorted to playing to the various programmed rhythms on my keyboard before.
