Ive been listening to The Doors for a while and started Pink Floyd a few months ago and i love the jazz they blend with their music. I also like US3 which is like jazz/hip hop, but i never actually listened to any straight jazz. Can anyone tell me any good albums to acquire? Like some good piano free form stuffsmile

Nujabes? That's some jazzy hip-hop.

And to turn to classics, go with the greats: Mile Davis, John Coltrane, etc.

Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue" album is considered the best jazz album by many and one of the 10 ten albums in general. I've always's loved Coltrane's "a love supreme" and "blue train" as well as davis "the modern jazz giants" to also be indisputabel classics.. I'm a kinda big jazz fan so if you need any more suggestons just holler, it's just that these are some of the more easily accessible albums in my opinion.


If you blaze, there's nothing like chilling to some miles/coltrane imo.

By the way, allmusic.com has a good rating system for albums so just look it up by artist and explore.

Please be kidding...

But anyway, a Jazz CD I was listening to recently was the Cover album Monk did of some Duke Ellington classics. Look it up, it's pretty beast.

All I do is smoke weed and listen to MF DOOM innercitykidsmusic.com

For some newer age check out
Karl Denson (as himself, Karl Denson trio, or Greyboy Allstars)
Benevento & Russo (very intense keys and drums)
Dirty Dozen Brass Band (just plain dope)

Karl Denson has some stuff from "Dance Lesson #2" with some tables mixed in, nice.

Karl Denson is the real deal, I saw him a few months ago....dude played for at least 3 hrs, with one intermission in between.

Dave Brubeck is good shit

I actually like Bitches Brew by Miles Davis, but it takes a very particular mood to listen to.

I would add old Grover Washington Jr. to the list...he has some sick soul covers, especially the Marvin Gaye song, Inner City Blues (Makes Me Wanna Holler)
