Miles Davis Great choice, Trollheart. I'd agree with Burning Down: More Miles.
Concha Buika (Latin Jazz) and Jamie Cullum (Jazz-pop) maybe artists whose albums you might find enjoyable.

Yay Trollheart! I'm so happy to hear that!

My recommendation would be Blues & Roots by Charles Mingus. It doesn't sound much like Kind of Blue but it's an album I really enjoy. It's very bluesy, which I think you'd enjoy, and course it was made by one of the most legendary composers/musicians in all of jazz so it's well worth a listen.




Also, you might be interested in A Love Supreme by John Coltrane. It's a great album that's more in the direction of Kind of Blue. In fact Coltrane was in Miles' band on Kind of Blue.

Oh no no no! I bloody hate big band music (though I can listen to "In the mood" and "Moonlight serenade" but that's about it)

Also, sorry about your problems with your brother BD: didn't get a chance to say in the thread. Hope you get it all sorted.
Bitches Brew. Also, I suggest Charles Mingus The Clown. That's one of my favourites.

And thanks.

I'm curious what are the reasons behind this hate for big band music and does it translate over to orchestra as well.

Lots of great suggestions all around guys. And TH, when your ready to jump into 70's-to-modern jazz fusion, you know who to call.

A few early recommendations though:

Return To Forever - Where Have I Known You Before
Ain Soph - A Story Of Mysterious Forest
Soft Machine - Third
Mahavishnu Orchestra - Apocalypse
Dimension - Fourth Dimension

No I love orchestral music. I think it's probably all the brass in big band: I just don't like too much brass. And the fact that it's all linked with the forties and so on. I don't like the forties. Meh who knows? I just don't enjoy big band music, especially when they bloody start singing! Urgh!

Also, I don't have to actually have a reason to hate a certain genre: we're not all built the same, as I've said before. Some music just does not speak to me. That's just the way it is. I don't like hip-hop, don't like punk, don't like much dance music if any and now I don't like big band. There are probably reasons for all of these but I don't really feel I need to be explaining myself, do I?

No you don't have to explain yourself but I was just curious and seeing as this is a music forum I thought I would discuss it with you if you didn't mind.
