I'm not into jazz and blues, but want to get into it to expand my playing style and capability. I'm into a lot of rock and metal. (From RHCP and Led Zep to Metallica and Children of Bodom). So ithink i could expand it a little more.

But when it comes to jazz, If there exist some kind of jazzy stuff without too much of saxophone playing. And with good recording quality (less than 30 years old)

May someone please help me out?

Dude, your making a very myopic request. 1. If you play Led Zeppelin, you play blues. 2. There are recordings that were made in 1958 that make modern recordings sound like they were recorded in the back of a moving van.

But if you want piano jazz, look up Thelonious Monk- Alone. Guitar jazz, look up Joe Pass- For Django, Jim Hall- Dialogues, and Wes Montgomery- Smokin the Half Note.

If you say you like Zeppelin type stuff but hate sax you have failed at listening. Go listen to The Stones recordings from '68-'72 and Born To Run by Bruce Springsteen, then start getting a bunch of R&B records, followed by a Charlie Parker album and Blue Train by John Coltrane. If you still don't like sax by the end of that just commit suicide or stop calling yourself a musician. Also what's wrong with everything more than 30 years old, not only is vinyl>CDs but it's not like recording technology sucked before the 70's. Son House recordings sound great and they were recorded in the 30's. As for blues look at Zeppelin's influences you twat. <--Wow I just said twat and I'm American.

I think I expressed myself as an idiot there. Sorry for that

imgooley was quite helpful with the guitar stuff, I loved that.

I like a FEW Zeppelin songs, and I was primarly looking for Jazz stuff here.

I don't hate the saxophone. But I'm not a fan of long saxophone solos (not a fan of long guitar solos either to be honest). I didn't say I hated it, it's a cool instrument.

May I express myself otherwise then.
Isn't there jazz bands which focus more on guitar and bass?

And with the record thing, I don't know much about recording. So just give a **** about that with the recording.

Hey, can anybody recommend me a Chet Atkins album? I heard a cover of Young Thing by John 5 recently, and after a few youtube video searches, I want to grab an album or two of his.

Oh sorry. I stand by the fact you should at least give Charlie Parker and John Coltrane a chance, but as for jazz that focuses on guitar Wes Montgomery comes to mind but I just woke up so I'm of little help.

Ok, if you want more bass oriented stuff, check out Charles Mingus, specifically, Blues and Roots. A lot of Mingus compositions are mostly head arrangements with lots of improvisation.

For guitar oriented stuff, a good starting place for a new person to jazz is Wes Montgomery- A Day in the Life. Other than that, there's the Sonny Rollins (a tenor Saxaphonist)- The Bridge. Jim Hall plays on that record, and it's one of my favorite recorded albums ever.

For Wes get Incredible Jazz Guitar of Wes Montgomery or Smokin' at the half note. Both are great jazz guitar albums, some of the best in my opinon aswell.

For metheny get bright sized life

Hey guys I think I should pick up a T-Bone Walker CD sometime which should I get. I love Stormy Monday and T-Bone Shuffle but beyond that I don't know any songs by someone who is arguably the most influential musician of the 20th century.

how do you find that song distasteful?

i personally think the guitar is one of a kind...such great licks and tone

Hey. I've been playing a lot of blues all my guitar years. And I wanna expand to some jazzy blues.

I've heard a lot of jazz through the years, but nothing ever really grapped me, atleast not anything with guitar. I got plenty with brass n piano.

I'm looking for some (slow) bluesy jazz with guitar. Doesn't have to all guitar though. Drums, bass, vocals, brass.. It's all fine, aslong as there's a little bit of guitar

I can't stand fast jazz and the likes. So slow n' warm is what I'm seeking..

Throw me some suggestions and i'd be happy

Hey, I've been wanting to buy a BB King and a Buddy Guy CD (separately, not a collaboration, not sure that even exists) :P

Should I go for a Greatest Hits, if so, which? Or one of their more recent albums, or an older one? Give me two names.

I don't know which you should get by Buddy Guy, but for BB get Live at The Regal. As For Buddy perhaps Skin Deep but all I know of Buddy Guy is a Best Of and I've listened to Skin Deep.

Edit: Just did a search apparently they've collaborated many many times

Just search Buddy Guy and B.B. King on Youtube.

Nina Simone at Town Hall, and her Friends, at Carnegie Hall, Sings the Blues and High Priestess of Soul. To be honest most of her stuff is pretty sound.
