Charles Mingus. That's the shit you want. Check this song out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__OSyznVDOY Makes me want to slap my mother.


It's funny how people link to that song where Mingus isn't even playing bass. It's still a pretty badass version, i agree.

Also OP, if you want something really smooth bluesy jazz to listen too maybe check out some hardbop like Art Blakey.

Awesome trumpet solo by Lee Morgan.

I really like the Art Blakey, more so than the Charles Mingus. I'm a pretty big fan of Frank Sinatra. What would Frank be classified as? I'm thinking Jazz

On top of what's been said, just a few more:

Paul Chambers - Bass On Top
Lee Morgan - The Sidewinder
Ornette Coleman - The Shape of Jazz to Come

Also you might like some of the jazzier bits of Jimmy Bryant or Danny Gatton.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Willie Dixon - I Am The Blues

The man. As well as writing classics for others, he performed a few himself.

For some awesome harmonica go with Sonny Boy Williamson - The Real Folk Blues.
Blue Jays, Seahawks, Raptors, Habs, Peterborough United FC, Gold Coast Suns.

You are aware that jazz is probably one of the widest genres of music? There's no way you can have listened to everything from Charlie Parker to Peter Brötzmann and come to the conclusion that it's all bad.

Look up Tom Waits (70s stuff), Nels Cline, Marc Ribot, Django Reinhardt, and Sun Ra. There is some really good jazz out there, but there's also a lot of shit. If you think it's all bad then you aren't looking hard enough,

If you want modern pop-ish jazz you should check out E.S.T. Amazing stuff.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WUeZqK1FPM

Judging how you liked Art Blakey and seem to be more into the older traditional stuff i would recommend you to check out some classic Charlie Parker.

If you want something older but more experimental and batshit crazy check out Thelonious Monk.

Also look into Hank Mobley, he has a lot of great albums, start with Soul Station.

If you want to try Coltrane start with Blue Train, then give A Love Supreme a try. Also check out Giant Steps and My Favorite Things.

Seasick Steve is the man!

I love Seasick Steve. He's the finest example of how blues isn't about having fancy gear (as most of the EG forum seems to think ). It's about playing it from the heart and Seasick Steve does that perfectly.

I personally would stay away from a love supreme. Id say give Giant Steps a listen first.

I don't think it's that hard to get into, it's not like i recommended the Olatunji Concert or Ascension. But i just added Giant Steps and My Favorite things to the post.

A Love Supreme was the first jazz album I ever listened to & I didn't think it was way out there or anything.
#36
Didn't see Bill Evans mentioned, he's about the only person from whom I will listen to absolutely anything.

I got a bootleg cassette tape of Sunday at the Village Vanguard when I was maybe 10. I still listen to it pretty regularly (not on cassette though...).

Alice in Wonderland

Dream Gypsy (with Jim Hall on guitar)

Also - there's a whole subforum dedicated to jazz and blues. It's a bit slow, but you'll probably get better suggestions and less trolling.

Muddy Waters is what real blues is about man. I'd go as far to say that if you didn't like him, forget about everything else in the genre.

Howlin' Wolf, Billie Holiday, BB King, John Lee Hooker, Robert Johnson and Elmore James are all big blues artists, I'd give them a listen.

This was my favourite blues song for a while, check Sam Chatmon out.

Oh, and Tom Waits gives you a bit of Jazz and Blues, so I'd recommend listening to Rain Dogs too.
