Looking For New Music

I play bass, mostly metal but i wanted to try some jazz. I hate the saxophone so anything with that is an automatic no, I prefer jazz with mostly guitar.

Can you give me some names??

Check out Vulfpeck. Holy shit. And as a bassist, you will love them. They're like funk/blues/jazz and if they don't become famous there is no hope in our world.


Check them out on YouTube as well. Live performances that are very well filmed and the audio sounds amazing! Honestly, these guys are the shit

As a bass player, the first Jazz/fusion artist you should check out is Jaco Pastorius. Essential.
