Thanks for the help guys that is what I was looking for.
What type of jazz are you more into?
I can list more
Oh I forgot check out Wes Montgomery
Also don't forget the ladies of jazz
Check out some Pat Martino...
Diana Krall isn't on there why?
mostly classic and smooth jazz. It's just something to relax to and listen to while I read, do whatever. mostly jazz without words with a real smooth beat is good. If that makes any sense at all.
highly recommend "Time Out"
eric dolphy is good.
the incredible jimmy smith
miles davis-porgy and bess soudntrack, if only for his version of summertime.
This album in particular:
I really like Jame's Hunter's People Gonna Talk:
Might be considered more "blues" than "jazz," but you might like it anyway.
[SIZE=-1]James Hunter sounds like one of the great black American soul singers from the late 50's, early 60's.[/SIZE]
Would he be considered jazz, though?
I see his CD in Jazz and Blues sections, and I can hear both elements in his music. Either way, he's really good!
Diana Krall = amazing
Miles Davis & John Coltrane- SO WHAT
John Coltrane & Stan Getz:
Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers - Blues March
Dave Brubeck - Take Five
Milt Jackson Quartet - Bag's Groove
Oscar Peterson Trio - A Gal In Gallico
Coleman Hawkins - Body & Soul
Wes Montgomery - 'Round Midnight
Ben Webster - A Night In Tunisia
Charlie Parker: Celerity
Sonny Rollins Weaver of Dreams
