Well, I got the okay from Cas and Beat to do this, so here goes. Because Doug (Cas) doesn't frequent this forum as much as I do, I am going to combine the two lists so I can still edit them when someone needs a Jazz person added. Since WindJammer isn't here anymore, I might have to do the same with that list too.

Nice, a lot easier having it all in one big list.

And also, why was Windjammer banned?

The_Strat_Man
06-29-2005, 05:58 PM
For spamming and flaming in MT. It was quite a read. Cas had this huge 6 post flame on Wind for being an egotistical jerk and for trying to start a public flame war. It was pretty funny.

It was cleared by Cas or one of the other MT mods. It was the "OK.... But who should I listen to?" one. Also, try reading here... I think this was where it started: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=221056

strat man, have you considered Shawn Lane? He is not purely jazz as purists may argue, more of fusion ; but as a great musician could he make it to that list ?

The_Strat_Man
07-01-2005, 10:24 AM
What instrument, and can someone else answer if he would be a jazz artist to consider. I don't really listen to Jazz as much as I'd like, so, I'm kind of in the dark here about these artists and have to take the people's word on them.

Richie Kotzen! He's done some pure blues album, but most of his stuff is on the fusion side.

Also add Snowy White (ex Thin Lizzy) to the blues artists ;)

One guy that has a great style is Joe Wood and the Lonly ones. He has a good blues sound. However, he used to be the lead guitarist for the famous punk band Tsol. Therefore, there is a little bit of a punk/classic rock vibe in there. It unique and has a great blues vibe. I suggest you check him out. His web site is www.JoeWoodmusicandart.com

Add Billy Cobham do jazz drummers. He played with Mahavishnu but also had some amazing stuff of his own.

EDIT: and Herbie Hancock to keyboardists. Everyone needs to listen to him. Really funky jazz or jazzy funk.

NEW EDIT: add miroslav vitous under bassists. One of the founders of Weather Rport and also had an awesome solo career. Hes an amazing basssist.

Jazz Artists - Dave Weckl (Drummer), Chick Corea (Pianist), Eric Marienthal (Saxophonist), John Patitucci (Bassist) & Frank Gambale (Guiarist). Well, there more Jazz/Fusion artists but i highly recommend them all. They were all in probably the best fusion group ever, called "Chick Corea's Elektric Band"(My personal favourite Jazz/Fusion Band) In the late 80s/ early 90s. I recommend the following albums if you can get your hands on them: "The Elektric Band", "Light Years", "Eye Of The Beholder", "Inside Out", "Beneath The Mask". Thats all the albums from "Elektric Band" but each artist has done there own solo album/s (Which i also highly recommend). I also recommend another great artist Michel Camilo (Pianist), really top notch Jazz with Latin grooves over it, he absolutley smokes! For him i recommend these albums: "Why Not?", "On Fire", "One More Once"(Try check out the track "Just Kiddin'" off this album, it is smokin!). Hope this helped you out somehow pentagram_man63.

Joe Beard- amazing Chicago bluesman.

Chris Beard- Joe's son. His blues is different, but equally as good.

Jimmy Thackery (& the Drivers)- Some good rockin blues

Smokin' Joe Kubek Band- more rockin blues

Li'l Georgie (& the Shufflin' Hingarians)- big, natural sounding, shufflin blues

Gwynn Ashton- Very SRV innfluenced Aussie blues

Jeff Lang- Debatable, but I think of him as "Slide Jam Blues".

Keyboard: John Medeski (I say keyboard cause he uses an Organ voice as well)
Drums: Billy Martin, Kenny Clarke, Alan Evans
Bass: Chris Wood, Ray Brown
Piano: John Lewis

Plus maybe Eric Johnson (guitar), Bill Maddox (drums), Kyle Brock (bass), and Steve Barber (keyboard) which are the 4 members of the Electromagnets, a Jazz-Rock fusion band.

Many of the artists just mentioned come from the bands Medeski Martin and Wood, The Modern Jazz Quartet, and Soulive which all deserve to be checked out.

While this is good for modern, fusion type jazz, if you want something more in the vein of the 50's era, then Wes Montgomery is a no-brainer. Also, try to find something with Herb Ellis, he's often overlooked and IMO is one of the most tasteful players ever.

Hell yeah. I forgot to mention JOE PASS and TAL FARLOW!!! Also look at Charlie Christian too. If there's someone we should thank for the fact the guitar is also a lead instrument, it's him. Why the hell did i forget?!?!

Oh yeah, and a funny story about john McLaughlin's album "Extrapolation" and Joe Pass.

Joe Pass was having a conversation with his friend and the topic turned to fusion jazz. Joe Pass replied to his friend by saying "I have no interest in this John Mclaughlin, Shakti or Fusion Jazz. I think that this is not really jazz but a mere attempt at jazz." His friend rolls his eyes and puts a record on, john mclaughlin's extrapolation. When Joe Pass Hears the first song, extrapolation, as heard HERE: http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=74996051, and Joe said "You see, man. Now THIS guitarist is good. THIS guitarist knows how to play Jazz." His friend just laughs and says "Joe, this is John Mclaughlin."

I'm looking more into traditional jazz instead of fusion, and I've heard things from the show Cowboy Bebop which sound really good.

Something along the lines of this (http://delta.realitylapse.com/dl/2c51f7ff9dbb8410d4a42741be5b070c/45f0efd8/music/cowboybebop/cbost1/01%20-%20Tank!.mp3) which I find amazing.

I've been listening to this radio station for about 4 months now. Its all blues and there are no commercials.

I recommend it. The only bad thing is that you might not always get what you want. Sometimes when I'm in a Chicago blues mood it seems all they play is Delta blues.

Hey guys, I'm looking for a CD that has some real ripping guitar stuff, but not your typical blues. Someone who uses modes or diminished scales, just something that sounds new to the typical classic rock/blues listener.

I saw a video of Mike Stern doing some song on youtube and it was awesome. It had crazy drums, a saxophone and Mike Stern ripping on guitar. Is his new CD any good?

Anyway, I'm open to suggestions.

OK, I'd like to get into blues music. Other than BB King, my only exposure to blues has been through classic rock bands like Jimi Hendrix, Cream and Led Zeppelin. So, can you suggest maybe five albums you think I'd like? Thanks.

If you liked Stern, you owe it to yourself to get These Times.

You should add Guitar Slim to the ridiculously long list of Slims :P

And i could swear i heard a recording of Jimmy Page with Muddy waters, but i dunno if that qualifies him to be added or not

I found the blues the same way here's some stuff I love
Start with the Beginning of Blues
If you can find them these are some good things to Get,
The Complete Recordings-Robert Johnson
A personal Favorite of mine is Skip James, Look For Something of his(its hard to find)
Look For Albert Collins(he absloutely kicks ass)
Stevie Ray Vaughan's Greatest Hits
Muddy Waters'-greatest hits

And Just Find A Good Compilation CD I found one for 20$ with 40 odd great classic blues songs
good luck

I want to expand my musical horizon further, and I'm currently trying to get into Jazz music. However, since it's a big and diverse genre, I don't really know where to start. That's why I hope some of you jazzers can lead me in the right direction. I'd prefer guitar-based music, but I am open to suggestions.

The artists I'm already into include: Al Di Meola, Django Reinhardt, Pat Martino, John Scofield and Frank Zappa (not all of his music is jazz, of course, but some of it is :))
I've tried listening to Alan Holdsworth, but he didn't really do anything for me.

Any suggestions are welcome. :cheers:

Ok, I'm not all that good with jazz.


But I was wondering if anyone had any artist/song reccomendations for the sort of jazz you'd hear in film noir?


Would be appreciated



Edit: you know, that sort of smokey room, slightly sleazy thing going on. Sort of like Harlem Nocturne.

Blues Wire from Greece.
I've seen them live and they were amazing.
I know that none of you will know them but they are one of the best european blues band's out there.
Check them.

I want to highly recommend grant green, one of my favorite jazz guitarists. His albums Green Street and Idle Moments are fantastic, particularly the title track idle moments.

i'd say Ten Years After and Mike Bloomfield are definitely missing on the blues list

Can anyone recomend something really raw and edgy sounding. Ive been listening to alot of R.L.Burnside recently, and I love his, im not sure if you'd call it heavy, but he gets a good aggresive sound. That sort of thing
