Get Briefcase Full Of Blues by The Blues Brothers. You will NOT regret it. One of my favorite albums of all time.

Yo, when you want to, hit up some avant garde and free jazz, and some organ trios

Eric Dolphy (Out to Lunch album is tight)
Ornette Coleman
Lester Bowie
Bill Dixon
The Art Ensemble of Chicago
Pat Martino
Larry Young
Larry Goldings (w. Peter Bernstein)
Dr. Lonnie Smith
Charlie Haden
Mario Pavone
Bobby Hutcherson
Matt Wilson's Arts and Crafts
David Murray
Greg Osby
Don Byron
Chris Potter (Chris Potter Underground band is sick)
Tony Malaby
Sam Yahel
Sam Rivers
Paul Bley
Roswell Rudd ( crazy free jazz trombone player)


Miles Davis and John Coltrane is obviously the classic, good jazz, but if you want to get deeper into it, check out these artists too. If you want more straigh ahead, I have some good bop and hard bop shit too.

^Solid list. Free Jazz takes some getting used to though...

billfris2345

Jazz in general gets some getting used too. I used to be into funk shit for a long time, and didn't like jazz, and then it just grew on me, and now i love it.

Ipswitch
10-13-2007, 09:02 PM
Yeah word. Before I played drums I was into random stuff. Then I started playing, and my drum teacher introduced me to jazz playing. He told me to listen to Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue" and my interest just grew from there.

Hey give me some good funk? I've been digging it for a while but I never tried to actively look for any

billfris2345

galactic
Soulive (although suck at late)
Lettuce
The Meters
Herbie Hancock Headhunters
The RH Factor


Some basic different types of funk. You should listen to some jazz rap shit too, like Tribe or Digable Planets. Really tight shit.

drowning_fish
10-13-2007, 09:12 PM
Haha I love Galactic. I think I made a thread about them earlier. By Tribe you mean ATCQ? Thanks though, I'll get on that. How'd you know I liked hip hop? Or was it just a blind suggestion?

billfris2345
10-13-2007, 09:14 PM
Yeah man, thats exactly what I meant, A Tribe Called Quest. haha, i had no idea you liked hip hop at all. But yeah, you should check out Digable Planets too if you like Tribe. Guru, Madlib, Quasimoto, The Beat Konducta, Cannibal Ox, J Dilla, Adam Deitch Project is some other different types of chill hip hop.

Don't forget P-Funk.

drowning_fish
10-13-2007, 09:26 PM
Hahaha I already listen to all that except Guru. I was about to pick up Beat Konducta in India yesterday but then I forgot.

I'll check P-Funk too. Thanks, this will (hopefully) keep me occupied musically for a while

Anti-Hero
10-13-2007, 09:54 PM
Guru from gangstarr? meh. quas is also meh, but madlib is tight, fucking love can ox man, and that avante gard list is pretty solid. for some other stuff check Scofield and MM&W too, pretty sick stuff, Scofield is one of the best players ive seen live and he's really influenced my playing, Wes Montgomery too. I was really into bop for a while but not really anymore, still dig it, dont listen as much.

Aw yeah, fusion's pretty cool. Check out Dave Weckl if your getting into fusion. He's a redonk drummer. One of my favorites when I first started playing drums.

drowning_fish

Haha I'm going to get drum classes. Will be fun

billfris2345
10-16-2007, 02:47 PM
Yeah, I'm not really a fan of fusion at all, probably my least favorite type of jazz, only to Smooth Jazz....but yeah, Charlie Hunter Quintet is great, happy you like them.


Dave Weckl is a little too generic for me personally.

Well that just goes without saying. Lets just try and avoid his name.

Yeah, mostly just bop, hard bop, avant-garde and acid jazz for me.

I know one Acid Jazz band. Forgot the name but I loved it. Have them on myspace. What's bop sound like?

Bop came after the Swing era, grew big in the 40's, and ended around the death of the co-founder Charlie Parker, in 1955. It was very radical at the time, where the energy is high, and the playing is "vertical" more then horizontal. What I mean, is that the player would be playing chord tones up and down, and playing very harmonically over a more melodic, smoother solo. Some well known bop players would be:

Charlie Parker
Dizzy Gillespie
Max Roach
Bud Powell
Kenny Clark
Coleman Hawkins
Sonny Stitt
Dexter Gordon
Howard Mcgee
Oscar Pettiford

Speaking of swing, I wonder why no one has mentioned it until now. I absolutely love Glenn Miller. The Squirrel Nut Zippers too, for those into a more contemporary group.

Not much into swing, but I kinda like the big band sound.

You might want to look into The Cherry Poppin Daddies, then. They've got a bit of a big band/ska mix
