Dude, I love me some Swing, Free Jazz, Bigband, Fusion etc :)

Some of my favorite artists:

Charles Tollivers Bigband comes in second.


First place goes to this obscure ensamble! ♥
I own three of their albums which I paid around a total $150 for....way too hard to get.


Too cool for this world.


And my favorite Fusion act.


Enjoy!

My deal is-I've always liked jazz to some extent and have in the back of my mind the intention of purchasing more music. I've become more aware in recent years the amount of jazz influence in metal-either overtly like Tram, Animals as Leaders, or Ihsahn using a saxophonist or jazz infused in extreme metal like Cynic.

 

But it's always been at the bottom of my list. Last month, I felt I was basically caught up w/ new music from 2013, so I said-let me learn a little more about jazz before a bunch of new metal and rock comes out in 2014 that I want to get.

 

So, I researched a bunch of websites for the greatest jazz albums of all time and came up with my own list. I started out with like-"the most important jazz albums every music lover should hear before they die" kind of thing and then moved on to other jazz.

 

It's really a mixture of early jazz, classic 50's-60's bop, hard bop, modal/smooth, avant garde, free jazz, and electronic or jazz fusion.

 

What I have found is particularly the later fusion and also the so called weird experimental, avant garde stuff feels pretty comfortable to me after listening to a fair amount of prog, and experimental metal and rock.

 

Jazz is such a massive body of music. I think everyone needs some instrumental non metal/rock for those moments you want to chill. I can't get into classical that much. I look at jazz as the origins of blues and contemporary music. For me it's my "classical" music and I enjoy discovering the history-plus a lot of it really is good particularly now that I have better hi and head fi.

 

Question-do you listen to any jazz as a reference point?

Shakti, Mahavishnu Orchestra.. (thats about it...)

Jazz? Actually most Jazz is as boring as the snobbery that adores it. IMO.

 

Some is kinda good though.

When this album came out no one knew that this sound would be what they would stick with forever. That said it makes the album cool. Many think it is their best.

"If Satan starred in a western, this would be his theme", as someone once said about a track from that album... :-P

Cool... I've been investigating some fusion.

 

Kind of interesting listening to Miles Davis electric period. I recently bought In a Silent Way and Bitches Brew. Quite experimental.

 

I hear sounds that remind me of later period earth, psychedelic and even post rock. These two albums are credited to influence ambient music. That was the first time in jazz where music was tracked and then heavily edited which supposedly influended early Hip hop sampling.

 

Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea both worked on those albums. Herbie Hancock has some weird spacey, proggy music. It's not metal at all, but there's so much prog in metal these days-It feels like a connection to me albeit several times removed.

 

Anyone interested in investigating weird, spacey prog, this album has three of his prog jazz fusion albums that I enjoy when I want something really left of field including Manwishi and Crossings.
