Gimmie some. I took a short uni course in jazz history last spring, but I don't remember all that much. So preferably, something along the lines of Davies' "Bitches Brew", Mahavishnu Orchestra's "Birds Of Fire" or - though perhaps not all that "trippy" - Coltrane's "Giant Steps".

Well, ya get the idea - something within the realms of fusion or electric jazz or whatever.

Tanx :cool:

try some of Louis Sclavis' latest stuff or some Sun Ra.
Ornette Colemans free jazz stuff or some Michal Urbaniak

um my ex-drum teacher's band is considered acid jazz

look up Green Light on www.cdbaby.com they're really good...and for a jazz/punky sound if u're into that, Devil Doll is really good...singer sounds kinda like gwen stefani, music fuses jazz/lounge/punk/rock its really cool and unique

Ehh... Sun Ra is just a taaaaaaad too extreme for me. ;)

I heard "Honeymooners" by Coleman, but when I checked out the rest of that album (forgot which one its on), it struck me as rather boring

check out Herbie hancock's Head Hunters

and also have you heard of Stark Reality? here go to this link


you can listen to 4 of their songs free their streaming. "Shooting stars" is the best one on there. They only released one album, back in 1970. They have a really trippy relaxing sound with fuzz guitar and awesome vibraphones.

the doobie brothers.

no seriously.

Jaco's stuff sometimes trips me out. What exactly would you define trippy jazz as?

I'd definately go with John Zorn's Naked City albums. You seem to like rock the most, sseing that your primary interests in jazz are heavy fusion albums. Go pick up their self-titled album, or, get their "Black Box" which includes "Torture Garden", which was banned in the US due to the fact that the cover art was so graphic. THe second disc i believe is called Leng T'chi, which is some Chinese torture which is also called, "Death By a THousand Cuts". It's pretty disgusting stuff. Disgusting, both in the good way and the bad way. I remember reading, it's basically the soundtrack for hardcore S&M pornography.
