hello all.
i have been a pretty casual jazz fan for the past few years.
the past 6 months or so though i have been getting heavy into it.
not that smooth jazz kenny g stuff. the hard hitting jazz.

been listening to miles davis a lot. jamming to don ellis right now.
listening to a lot of duke ellington stuff recently.

cant seem to get enough.

so for the jazz fans, can you throw some names my way. there is so much out there it is hard to get exposure to all of it.

i like fusion as well so feel free to throw some of that out there.

i like odd/shifting time signatures. lots of horns. stuff like that

this is my favorite song of all time and not really a 'jazz guy'



feel free to take it back to the ragtime era if need be

Google "Jazz Festivals", and watch vids that pop up on Utube. You may find tunes you like, and backtrack to the original source. My daughter has preformed in the Pacific NW for the last 7 years, and my attendance at various festivals exposed me to the genre.

My Ipod is now 50% filled with jazz, many songs the result of experiencing them for the 1st time at some of my daughter's performances. Enjoy!

Jazz..

The one type of music I can think of I havn't mastered. (learned to like). Maybe I'll try some songs that appear in this thread..

I'm a lil scared.

Jazz to me usually sounds like bad self indulgent off beat sex between weird people and their instruments. And the instruments can't get away.
Maybe you can change that.. Lol

Frank Zappa not bad. So far so good.

youre that awesome that you mastered all other types?
hmmmmmmmm
youre the first in the history of the world


you should be scared....


frank was awesome. not really a jazz guy but clearly he can compose it.
hot rats came out in 69. bitches brew came out in 70. i think bitches brew was completed first though.

those are generally thought of as the first jazz fusion records

Check out John Coltrane.

For some modern jazz (with a Middle Eastern sound), check out Gilad Atzmon.

Good stuff.

You might give this site a shot, when looking for new genres or bands to listen to. I would recommend using Ctrl+F (or Mac equiv) in your browser to open a little search bar, then search Jazz. There are many types of Jazz so this will be the easiest way to locate them there.

It's happening again. If I was the Hulk.. Jazz would be what sets me off.. Lol.

Don Ellis and his Orchestra live version of "Indian Lady"-17 minutes of awesomeness if you can find it.

Also Jaco Pastorius/w Weather Report-"Birdland".

PS: Also "Your's is the Light" Santana/w Flora Purim, and "Love Devotion and Surrender".

Also fusion wise Mahivishnu Orchestra "Birds of Fire".

frank has a lot of material out there spanning damn near every genre.
i like instrumentals so hot rats is one of my favs.
his lyrics is what throws a lot of people off.
he could play guitar with the best of them. his improv skills were ridiculous.

check out this solo from 1973. starts at 20 seconds

Can't go wrong with the old classics. Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Thelonius Monk, John Coltrane, Eric Dolphy, Wes Montgomery, Charlie Mingus, Max Roach...on and on.

I was a Zappa freak in my younger days I loved his blurry, manic guitar solos. If you haven't heard "Waka/Jawaka" and the "Grand Wazoo" the records he made while he was recuperating from injury and starting writing "notes" as he would put it. These are my favs at the moment.

I also adore the "Flo and Eddie" era.
