Buy both pickups. Rub icyhot on both of them. Sandwich your penis between them and walk to the nearest homeless shelter with your brand new icyhot penis sandwich.

A jazz favourite of mine is the guitarist martin taylor, it's more fusion. But it;s fine quality stuff.

For Jazz, you can't beat Mingus, Stanley Clarke, Paul Chambers (played with John Coltrane) and of course, Jaco.

For Funk, Larry Graham, Francis Rocco Prestia (Tower of Power), Bootsy Collins and George Porter, Jr (The Meters)

your only gonna find something inspirational if you hear and and really go "wow, thats what i want to do!"

fusions did that for me. i friggin love jazz fusion. Bela Felck & the Flecktones, Weather Report, Return to Forver, Greyboy Allstars, Soulive, Phish (i consider phish as a latin, jazz, rock fusion group) and jazz mandolin project.

classic jazz like bop and cool can be a bit hard to follow and really like, maybe fusion is more up your alley.

Don't forget Paul Chambers played with Miles Davis too.
It was funny, in one of Paul Chambers CD's the booklet had some quote in it saying Paul Chambers was a b**** because he was too good.

Check out the Mahavishnu Orchestra.
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.
