Can someone help me. I'm looking for a jazz band that has kind of a latin feel to it. I guess the guitar stuff would kind of be like Carlos Santana's playing. Thanks.

edit: Here's a good example of what I'm talking about

I haven't been in this thread for a while, but I just came in and noticed the guy up a few posts that mentioned Scott Amendola -- props to you. I love this guy and his music, probably my first dive into avante-garde.

Check him and his band out if you're interested.

Frank Jack

Have you ever heard of Frank Jack? He plays all over Chicago, strangely mostly at open mics. He does something I've never seen before. He usually does a solo show and creates all of his own music, prerecording some of it, but the kicker is he becomes the bizzare characters his songs are about. To find out where he'll be playing next, what I do is I look at different sites that list open mics in chicago. Sometimes they'll post who will be playing, but other times I just call around and ask people if they'll know where he'll be. Trust me, it's well worth it.

Maybe i'm blind (is this the boy band forum?!) but noticed there might be a couple of omissions from an otherwise excellent list of recommendations

Herbie Hancock
- Headhunters
- Thrust
Two exceptional Jazz/Funk/Fusion albums

Chick Corea and the RTF
- Hymn of the Seventh Galaxy
- Where Have I Known You Before
Fabulous fusion fun

Brand X
- Morrocan Roll
- Unorthodox Behaviour
Phil Collins on drums! Some great stuff here tho.

Back Door
- Back Door
Amazing self titled debut album from 3 guys who were totally in it for the music. An original sound with an amazing bass player who practically takes on the roll of bass, rhythm and LEAD guitar just using the 4 strings. Quality.

John McLaughin
- Extrapolation
His fusion days aside, this is one of the finest examples of British jazz ever made. But you should never be without The Inner Mounting Flame, Birds of Fire and Between Nothingness and Eternity (Live).

Prophetz of Time and Space.

Jerry Goodman(Mahavishnu, Dixie Dregs), Ndugu Chancler (George Duke, Joe Zawinul), Brandon Fields are the mainstays, there are personnel changes from earlier albums, IMHO the best one is the latest, Vibrationz. Some interesting odd-meter fusion work on the last three cuts; one is in 22/8, 8-and-a-half/4 and 5/4, one is 15/4 and the other in 5. Plus some great grooves throughout, thanks to the rest of the players - Munyungo Jackson on percussion, Otmaro Ruiz, piano and Rhodes, Tadashi Namba on synths and Steve Vasco on bass.

If you prefer live, the previous album was recorded at Club Jazz Nouveau in San Fran, but while the performances were excellent, the sound and mix really suck.

Red Hot Mama is a great choice, whenever I hear that, it just sounds like a grip-full of fuzz.

I will recommend

Very good band, the music is just *oragasm*

EDIT: Yeah they have spilt up, and the site might not be around for too long, but while you have the chance you should try and buy a CD, they are really very cheap and fantastic.

I saw a swing recommendation in the first page so I'd figure I'd suggest two good swing bands.
Cherry Poppin' Daddys
Songs: Zoot Suit Riot, Ding-Dong Daddy of the D-Car Line, No mercy for swine.
Album(s): Zoot Suit Riot

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
Songs: Mr.Pintsripe Suit, You & Me & The Bottle makes three tonight, Jump with my baby
Album(s): Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, This Beautiful Life

Also any Wynton Marsalis is really good jazz.

RHCP? I hope you're joking.

For funk, I can't recommend highly enough the group 'Osaka Monaurail'.

The Red hots are not funk. simple as. what they are are a funk influnced rock band (IMO anyway. the regulars on here may say something else)
