    I love jazz, especially solo piano and piano/bass/drums trios.
    Favorite jazz of the moment (I could NEVER pick my favorite jazz of all time): Brad Mehldau.

    oh, this is a great thread. i love nothing more than jazz as background music while i'm sipping wine and cooking. i love jazz clubs (there are none here, however :sad: ) too. i'm the kind of person that needs others to find/buy me music. i don't pay a lot of attention to artists, but i am very into certain sounds and know what i like......so i'll go through this thread and find things to add to my playlist. thanx!

    k. i know i like:

    *miles davis* (my cookin cd)
    *coltrane*
    *latin jazz*
    *cannonball adderley* (my cookin cd)

    i also like peguy's post of chicago-style jazz. i don't really like acid jazz. brings back memories of the 70's, or grocery store shopping, neither of which i really like to recall.

    i like jazz for cookin' or chillin', but when i feel raucous or groovy, i like me some funk

    aphrodite - cannonball made a latin jazz album with a group from brazil. it is called 'Cannonball's Bossa Nova', i am sure you would like it.
    here's a recording from it:

    here is an interesting video of Dexter Gordon. you get to see him practicing for about a minute backstage, before he goes on stage:

    yes. i do like it, but it's a little soft around the edges, you know? a little too.......regular and predictable? i like an edgier, sharper sound, if that makes sense (i have no musical talent obviously, so i don't know lingo).

    thanks for the recommendation. i need to work on my playlist.

    Yeah, in general jazz doesn't do a bunch for me. It's mostly about execution, whereas what interests me is more the conception of things.

    There are exceptions. There always are. Cab Calloway is a genius, for one.

    For me it all starts to go to wanktown with bebop. Can't really deal with that.

    Best Jazz ("Dixieland" if you want to get technical) album I've ever heard, hands down, is Pete Fountain's "Pete Fountain Day". It was a live recording of a quintet of his studio recording cats to include: Pete Fountain on Clarinet, Don Bagley on bass, Vibeist Godfrey Hirch, Pianist Merle Koch and Jack Sperling on drums (awesome drummer!). The energy of the performance is unreal. Any person remotely into Jazz (or good music in general) needs to check out this recording. I don't even know that CDs have been pressed of the album, but I know you can find the vinyl on ebay for under $15. It's well, well worth it. You have beat's word on it.

    For me, background music has to be boring. If I put on anything interesting in the background, I'll get too caught up in listening to it. I completely immerse myself in everything I listen to. I make it a point not to listen to music while I'm driving; I have been known to be completely oblivious to red lights, stop signs, road boundaries, and other cars while I'm listening to music.

    Fusion is my favorite sub-genre (of jazz) at the moment.
