This is a thread dedicated to Jazz music. If you're a fan of jazz, post away.

Discuss anything Jazz related, maybe your favorite artists/bands new or old, or maybe even about how much you despise jazz, equally interested in the critics opinions as well :snake: I'm also looking forward to other people recommending jazz i haven't heard

So I'll start the thread off by sharing some one of my favorite styles of jazz*

From the "old" days of jazz, dixieland style jazz

This man is really known as the one of true founders of jazz music, or at least famous or putting it out there and influencing the jazz musicians from the 30s to present time

Louis Armstrong aka "Satchmo" on May 8, 1954 at

University of North Carolina Memorial Hall - Chapel Hill, NC

ok.. let me start off saying this....i am a MASSIVE jazz fan.. and as m first post this is only fitting

sure.. its jazz. but its more along the lines of a cross over than straight jazz. most true players would not call then jazz.. but .. i would like to think other wise.

as for the new deal..not really jazz at all to my ears.. but good none the less..

a few of my fav jazz heads that i find on heavy rotation on my players

miles davis allll of his work.. and (electric band) is some of my fav right now.

Coltrane is one of my idols! I actually play tenor sax so you kinda have to like coltrane heh heh. But i've been really getting into this group called Jazzanova. Their CD In Between is amazing! Must check it out! It's a mix of jazz, hip hop and they always change it around. Some easy listening when you light up the bong.

amazing how may Coltrane lovers out there SUNship has got to be my fav, studio album...
but seriously diggity
that Antibes shit from '65 is the bee's knees
I have some of that on vinyl and CD

I also love Eric Dolphy esp. some of the stuff he recorded with Mingus...

How about Miles Davis anybody like Bitches Brew ..one good fusion, elec. jazz album w.
Zawinul and Hancock on the keys...

how about Pharoah Sanders I think Tauhid was a ground breaking album for that hard-free jazz sound. Pharoah has some amazing guitarist on there too.
Pharoah is so lyrical in his tone...

For Thelonius Monk check out his later Black lion releases... truly awesome shows his skills were there even when his mind wasn't

Jazz is my jaunt.

I've been getting down on some Dave Brubeck all morning.

Cal Tjader- morning. Beautiful song but there are several versions. Look for the trackss on agua dulce and descarga I believe. Also check out the song titled, what are you doing for the rest of your life? Great one.

Among other jazz artists I like:

mongo santamaria
stan getz
charles mingus
django reinhardt
Herbie Hancock
Ernie Ranglin
