So for a music presentation I've been assigned the topic of "other types of jazz". I wanted to play something more electric guitar oriented so I figured I would do something like Santana...the problem is I don't know which of his songs would fit under that category! Anyways I'm probably only going to play for a minute or so, so if anyone knows a good "other" jazz song, I would be much obliged. Thanks!

Santana no es Jazz.

Weather Report FTW.

Get Heavy Weather, and then listen to Birdland. THAT is good jazz.

Edit: Mahavishnu Orchestra is great if you want some jazz-fusionesque stuff. Liquid Tension Experiment could work too.

We do have a jazz section on this forum. Don't be so lazy. Do some research yourself. It's not that hard.

Don't listen to anyone!

Look up The Rosenberg Trio, specifically the song "For Sephora".

Also, check out gypsy jazz in general.

I remember when I was really young, I had a wet dream in which i was being dragged along an urban countryside by a pickup truck.

Don't ask me I have no idea how the hell it happened.
