Recommend me some dark jazz/blues?

I'm looking for something with a slow tempo, that's kinda dark, preferably with some repetitive groovy bass lines or rhythms, and emotional lead work from either a guitar or any brass instrument.
Thanks in advance.

Yeah, those are some of my favorite songs. That Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds vid is a bit crazy, though.

I'm going through a Tony Joe White phase at the moment: can't get enough of him.

Try the albums 'Beginning' and 'One Hot July'. Plenty of tracks on YouTube.

Not 'jazzy' but bassy and kinda heavy: might fit in with what you asked.

I would highly recommend Keith Jarrett's Dark Intervals, and Holon by Nik Bärtsch's Ronin; serve chilled, and both records go down well with most medication.

But don't take my word for it, check 'em out at Amazon.

I'm not sure this qualifies as either blues or jazz... I guess it's sort of bluesy. Either way, I had to post it, as it's one of the most excellent guitar solos I've ever heard.

Do you know BB King's the Thrill Is Gone?

That's a bit dark. It's got some damn fine guitarwork, and a really good string section.

isn't the very definition of blues that it's dark though?

I'd say gary moore's parisian walkways is dark sounding

Son House might just be the darkest man I have ever listened to.
His music has changed my life. He must have had the most difficult life - a clashing of religion, murder and the blues.

Howlin Wolf is kinda darkish. Evil, Smokestack Lightnin, and I Asked Her For Water And She Brought Me Gasoline) are pretty eerie songs.

And I mean, the mans voice is just great.
