|Best Albums Lately|
I have a feeling that i will be listening to these a lot more from now on.
A Love Supreme
I'm getting into more and more Jazz, and this album is making me want to get into the genre even more. I love just putting this album on and just sit there listening to it in it's entirety.
Kind of Blue
This is another album that makes me want to listen to more jazz. Miles was an incredible trumpeter and composer and i feel, so far, that this is his best work. Flamenco Sketches is brilliant.

Every guitar player should know this man's name. He is, in my opinion, the best jazz fusion player out there (maybe Shawn Lane too) and this album proves it. I wouldn't say it's his best, but City Nights is just an incredible song.
Whenever i've been in the mood, i have been listening to this album lately. I would probably consider it better than Kill, but it's still not the best with Corpsgrinder.
This is one of his most underrated albums. It really goes to show what free form music can do, and i believe that this is his most free form album to date.
|For fans of free form jazz, i would tell u to youtube a guy named Derek Bailey. His style is the oddest that i have probably ever seen on the guitar, it's a very odd way of looking at music (free form). |
|yeah, he has released some sweet albums (I recommend 2002's "Ballads")|
If you wanna hear more Jazz, try some of these artists:
Charles Mings (The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady is my favorite jazz album, but pretty much everything he did is amazing)
more Miles Davis (Bitches Brew and A Tribute to Jack Johnson are my favs, though they're more fusion than jazz actually)
Mahavishnu Orchestra (jazz fusion)
and for stuff that's not like 40 years old get some John Zorn stuff (Kristallnacht & Naked City are my favs by him, as well as At the Mountains of Madness by his band Electric Masada, but he's released countless albums with countless different bands and played countless of different genres)
|Thanks for the recs. I know of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, but i think i should ghive them more of a listen.|
|also, get In A Silent Way, to add to Mendigo's Miles Davis recs. Also, get Dave Holland, John Scofield and John Abercrombie stuff.|
|What's the best Mahavishnu Orchestra album would u guys say.|
|Inner Mounting Flame is an amazing album by Mahavishnu, and you should definately check out Charles Mingus! First two albums are incredible!|
|just because you put CC and John Coltrane in the the same list makes it a win!|
