Cool Your favorite jazz albums and artists

Dunno about you but I love having a good jazz album on while getting a buzz and surfing the net. Somethin' with tracks that are 10+ minutes long and have a bassline that your body starts to subconsciously sync up with.

My current favorites:

Ahmad Jamal: Ahmad's Blues
Miles Davis: Kind of Blue
Oscar Peterson: Jazz in Paris vol. 1
John Coltrane: Blue Trane
Duke Ellington: Unknown Session
"Creating something is not a democracy. The people have no say. The artist does. It doesn't matter what the people witter on about: they and their response comes after. They're not there for the moment of creation."

I'm really digging

Victor Bermon - Arriving At Night (Technically it's not jazz but it sounds very jazzy)


Tigersmilk - Android Love Cry

Jazz is just about the one genre I haven't yet delved too much into, but my favorite is definitely Coltrane's Giant Steps.
oh sometimes the blues is just a passing bird
and why can't that always be
tossing aside from your birches crown
just enough dark to see
how you're the light over me

Bitches Brew and Headhunters (Hancock) are both great albums that are at the origins of fusion.

Joe Pass' Virtuoso is an amazing solo guitar record.

Wes Montgomery - Pretty much anything he did in a small combo setting is wonderful to listen to.

Horace Silver - Song for My Father

Cannonball Adderly - Somethin' Else

Louie Armstrong - Plays W.C. Handy

There's so many great albums and players out there. It's a great genre to get into once you start knowing what players you like you can guess on a lot of albums "oh this has Kenny Burrell and Johnny Smith on it that'll probably be a good one." And that's really where the fun starts coming in for me... when you get familiar with artists and tunes and what you anticipate is the interaction, instrumentation, etc.

Medeski, Martin and Wood would have-to-be my favorite, just bc ive had the fortune of seeming them now, 3 times. Stanton Moore trio is amazing... but i like Galatic better. Skrek is one of my most favorite saxist. thelonious monk my fav pianist; Hancock I love, has a great song with John Mayer off his last comp. album. Wynton Marslis amazing trumpet player Ive seen him only once blow my mind. and On my parting note Charlie Hunter best Jazz guitarist ever!

out of the few that i have now, i'm really gettin a good jam out of the doug sides ensemble. If the flute player is in each of their albums, any one of them is gonna be good.

Michel Camilo's "Live at the Blue Note" is, although not a perfect performance, a pretty diverse variety with nice inputs in each song.
Much madness is divinest sense
To a discerning eye;
Much sense the starkest madness.
'T is the majority
In this, as all, prevails.
Assent, and you are sane;
Demur, -- you're straightway dangerous,
And handled with a chain.
-Emily Dickinson

Parker, Adderley, Coltrane, and Davis are a must. Adderley is probably my favorite out of them, but they are all incredible. If I had to pick, my favorite album would probably be '58 Miles, which features all of the artists that I mentioned above. Really chill, laid back music with great solos.

Honorable mention to Micheal Brecker, Mingus, Chick Corea, Dexter Gordon, Sonny Rollins, Sonny Stitt, Joe Lovano, Joshua Redman, Oliver Nelson, Red Rodney, Stan Getz, Monk, and probably a bunch of other fuckers that I can't remember.

Kind of Blue of course, but then I really dig Trane's avant-garde stuff, especially Live In Japan. As far as fusion, Mahavishnu Orchestra's first 3 albums, and Miles' Live-Evil, and especially (although its not an album) his performance at Isle of Wight 1970, its insane. And then funk-jazz has to be Headhunters, and other stuff by Herbie Hancock. Also a newer album I got is called Saudades, with John Scofield, Jack DeJohnette and Larry Goldings. its an organ trio called Trio Beyond made to pay tribute to Tony Williams, and its pretty much all I've been listening to lately.
