Hey anyone know many Kansas City jazz artists? I really like Charlie Parker and Joe Turner, and today our music scene is really great, but I was driving down 18th and Vine and saw a mural of all the jazz greats, even though the only one from KC was Charlie Parker, and I realized I don't know many people who actually made it big.

I highly recommend Portico Quartet if anyone's after something a bit more contemporary in their Jazz.

Count Basie and his orchestra came from Kansas if I remember right, in fact there are some recordings which he made under the name Kansas big seven!

Oh yeah I forgot about him, he was even on that mural. Next time I'm driving down that way I'll have to take a picture of that mural.

My apologies for posting this in the wrong thread earlier - I was debating between whether to post it here or in that thread and made a mistake in reading the other thread's title - I missed the word "forum".

Anyways, here was my post:

I've been immersing myself into jazz slowly for a while now, and I am a fan of quite a few artists. I come asking about Miles Davis: what album(s) should I get? I already own Kind of Blue and am unsure of what to get next. Thanks in advance!

Other albums i like by David are: Sketches of Spain, Round about Midnight.

A lot of people consider Bitches Brew to be one of his best but it's too heavy for me, and I find john mcglaughlin distasteful.

Stevie Wonder should be in the multi-instrumentalists. He is great at pretty much anything he does

I would recommend Third, not only a fantastic album, but also the turning point between their first psychodelic era and the later more jazzy records.

In a Silent Way is like Bitches Brew but a little more relaxed and less heavy in my opinion. I agree with you somewhat on Bitches Brew but i still think it's an awesome album.

I'm looking for a blues/jazz instrumental similar to Messiah Will Come Again. Something with a nice lead guitar and a nice atmospheric backing... Does anybody have any suggestions?

Funkadelic - Maggot Brain
Air - La Femme d'Argent (no guitar, but it's very cool)
Pete Bardens - Don't Goof With The Spook (from the 'The Answer' album, featuring Peter Green on wah!! Superb album btw)

What is a good CD or Band for people trying to get into funk but have no idea where to start. I already have 1 or 2 James Brown CDs
