The Jazz Thread


There doesn't seem to be a thread for this, but I doubt I'm the only jazz fan here. Post any recommendations you have. Doesn't matter if it's swing or bebop (just no smooth jazz!)

Here's what I've been listening to recently:

John Coltrane - "Summertime"
http://youtu.be/Z8yTNZlgxjg

Barbara Dennerlein - "Jimmy's Walk"
http://youtu.be/LYP7Mxss3_U

Herbie Hancock - "Cantaloupe Island"
http://youtu.be/XrgP1u5YWEg

Dave Brubeck - "Take Five" (he died just last year )
http://youtu.be/vmDDOFXSgAs

Will be interesting to see the replies since I was looking for jazz music to listen to on the itunes radio

Just curious - why don't you want anyone to post smooth jazz?

you like jazz manouche or ragtime?

i think the most recent jazz i've listened to was either something by jim raney or this guy john lawlor (he's a tenor guitarist that has a couple videos of him doing chord melodies in a kitchen that i wish was in my house).

That was mostly a joke. Jazz purists can't stand smooth jazz. While I don't care much for it, I guess it'll be fine if someone wants to post some.

Cordell: man, thanks for reminding me. I forgot to include a Django piece in my post. How about Minor Swing?

As for ragtime, I haven't listened to much, but I do like some of Scott Joplin's stuff.

Also, I've been looking for some guitarists to listen to, so I'll look up those guys.

and, for guitarists, in no particular order... tal farlow, joe pass, wes montgomery, grant green, charlie christian... etc., etc.

been looking for somewhere to post a video of this woman, only found out about her recently, apparently she was a major influence on elvis Presley in the 1930's,40's..it's more blue's but it has a jazz feel sometime's I think ...probably in the wrong thread, but she's a great guitarist anyway







And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

My All time Favorite Jazz song and to this day stands as perhaps my favorite song period. Its pop infused Jazz but man this song gives me huge chills.

Listen to *****es Brew by Miles Davis

Look around you find the ground
Is not so far from where you are

Take your time and you’ll be fine
And say a prayer for people there
Who live on the floor
And if you see what’s meant to be
Don’t name the day or try to say
It happened before

Can't go wrong with Ella and a Gershwin song.

And one of my all time faves, with the Tommy Flanagan trio 1969 (this is a CD out there, every jazz lover, or Ella fan should get)
