MINGUS

then, in no particular order, just as they come to my head:

Sonny Rollins
Thelonius Monk
Dizzy Gillespie
Charlie Parker
Bill Evans
Joe Pass
Barney Kessel
Jim Hall
Herb Ellis
Grant Green
Kenny Burrell
Wes
Horace Silver
Lee Morgan
Freddie Hubbard
Howard McGhee
Clifford Brown


and a mad +1 to Art Blakey - any incarnation of his jazz messengers is good - I'm particularly fond of the ones with Lee Morgan

You are a guitarist? Right? You should check out Joe Pass and Jim Hall. And if you are into some heavier fusion stuff - Al DiMeola.

well I am trying some jazz too, and I got a Charlie Parker cd. It's awesome, very emotional.

Oh yeah, that's fantastic stuff...


And if you want a brain teaser, listen to some Ornette Coleman. A cricket's last thoughts before being stepped on set to music as I like to think of it.

Haha, that's a pretty funny analogy, I have to remember that.

Coltrane + Parker + Miles + Jaco = A great start


Any of those work too.

What about Weather Report? Is that more beginner's type stuff or more for seasoned listeners?

I didn't get into Weather Report until I started delving into more fusion, but they're a great group too. If you like Weather Report, check out Brand X's old albums. It's Phil Collins unleashing his full potential as an awesome musician in a jazz/fusion outfit.

John Coltrane (Giant Steps), Miles Davis (Kind of Blue), Dave Brubeck Quartet (Time Out).
