The funk track is obvious but what about the others? Would you consider them to be Jazz, blues, something else? My reason for asking is that I these backing tracks have really renewed my enthusiasm for improvisation and I'd like to try to find more backing tracks like these to practice with but don't know what genre I am looking for. Also, would you guys please recommend bands that I should check out that are similar the this style?

MANY THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!

footprints sounds like the doors with a blues solo over it.

But it says right under it that its jazz...
