More prime Miles due to be released in a couple of months' time - great news, as far as I'm concerned:

I've listened to this before on MOG, but I just received my copy on CD. Of course I ripped it in FLAC. Great album indeed.

....and going to the polar opposite of free Jazz, yesterday I picked up the posthumous record (poor guy died from cancer in his mid 40's, and NEVER smoked!) by Cuban bassist extraordinaire; Charles Flores - Impressions Of Graffiti - enjoying it very much. Also kickin' out the funk with the latest (released on Tues., supposedly it's charting as the #1 selling Jazz record on iTunes this week) from the Funky Knuckles - Meta Musica. Interesting to note how many different sub-genres there are in Jazz. Whether it's Free, Latin, Fusion, acoustic, electric, big band, small combo, solo, duo, trio, instrumental, vocal, or any combo of these. Jazz is such a small word for this vast universe of music!

Zara McFarlane - If You Knew Her

I've had this album pre-ordered for a while now and now it's finally out. Recommended for fans of soulful vocal jazz.

Way back in post #7 I wrote about a personal favorite band of mine; Snarky Puppy. Very excited and happy to congratulate them for their Grammy win for best R&B performance along with the amazing Lalah Hathaway! Go to YouTube to see this incredible performance and see for yourself what all the buzz is about!

Right guys this is not strictly jazz but i think it is an album that demands a listen. A must have for fans of great session playing. One of the best line-ups there ever was. An amazing album for sure!!

Anybody looking for a break from traditional jazz check out Koop's "Waltz for Koop".  Don't let the album cover scare you ;).

Now why on earth would anyone want to do that? (No offense meant to the music you posted.)

Maybe there is room for other types of modern jazz in addition to traditional jazz. Let's keep in an open mind here. Nobody is advocating the abandonment of the great works.

I'm confused. Didn't I write "No offense meant to the music you posted."?

 

And by the way, Be-bop, the music that Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie introduced back the 1940s, was not considered to be "traditional" jazz back when it was first played. In fact this radical music, as it was called at the time, really turned jazz on its ear. It is only 70 years later that Charlie Parker and be-bop are considered "traditional" jazz. Time has a funny way of taking the edge off of most things. For real traditional jazz I suggest:

 


Essential listening.

I'm all for a open mind too here... But I have to say, although I highly appreciate all these for me new Artists to discover thanks to posts in this thread, the OP is called on a mission to like Jazz. 

I highly doubt that people new to Jazz will start liking it by starting with some free Jazz. 

 

I always try to show to my gf some Jazz that she might like, but I always fail. Even with Take Five
