Avishai Cohen (not to be confused with the outstanding bass player Avishai Cohen...2 different guys)
For a jazz combo Roy Hargrove is one of the best out there. The newer it is, the better with him. His album Earfood is probably one of about three or four times that bebop-influenced jazz is not just listenable, but actually really cool even to non-jazzers. A definite must-have. Among his older stuff, Nothing Serious is pretty good but not like Earfood.
The Latin Giants of Jazz have had a pretty wide lineup of trumpets, but any of them are excellent. Fantastic latin big band music with some former members of Tito Puente's band. I've heard lots of jazz but those trumpets play better in tune together than nearly anyone! All of them can improvise as well and the music is a lot of fun to listen to.
