i feel weird being here but, does anyone know any jazz or blues songs (or artists) that are slow or mellow, usually consisting of a slow bass line and light percussion?

i never noticed how calming it was when i went into my local music store stoned and i heard some 70 year old black dude tappin his snare and cymbols to another dudes bass....

I really like Booker T. and the MGs, as Kartman has already stated.

Also, there is some Santana that's very chilled and relaxing, such at Treat (except it gets a little less "chilled" in the middle).

Most of You Just Don't Care, also be Santana, is chilled (and I love the "bassy" intro).

Soothing eh?

Cannonball Adderley & Miles Davis's album "Somethin' Else", specifically the song Autumn Leaves

Epistrophy is about as far from soothing as they come

How about these for a try?

Weather Report - A Remark You Made

The Yellowjackets - Spirit Of The West

Chick Corea - Spain

MVP - Tokyo Blue


Anyway... Probably one of the the most soothing and generally most beautiful albums I have ever heard, and one of my all-time favorites, is "The Rite Of Strings" by Al Dimeola, Stanley Clarke and Jean-Luc Ponty.

Brilliance.

Here's a taster: Renaissance


Others: I'd check out Michel Petrucciani's "Music" album, Chick Corea's "Touchstone" album (only if you're pretty advanced with rhythms though, otherwise you risk not really understanding a lot of it), the entire Mccoy Tyner Trio & Michael Brecker effort "Infinity" of which this is the first track.

That's all for now.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

Perhaps...but "Ruby, My Dear"...if you're with a woman with any taste in music, you'll find out quickly how good her clothes look on your floor.
