Why does no one post in this forum?


Anyways, I want to listen to some jazz but I don't know where to begin so can someone help me out by dropping some names?


Oh, and if you can reccomend some blues-men too I would totally grateful.


I like: Son House, Robert Johnson, SRV and some more like Robert that I can't remember the names of.

I agree with you moses, more people need to post in here. Jazz is my favorite genre, so the more the merrier. Keep in mind that jazz is basically an umbrella for a ton of different styles, and these are all very, very different artists. If you listen to some and like it, let me know and I can give you more reccomendations in that style.

Miles Davis
John Coltrane
Charles Mingus
Duke Ellington
Louis Armstrong
Thelonious Monk (no one sounds quite like the Monk)
Cecil Taylor
Anthony Braxton
Art Tatum (best pianist I've ever heard, and the mother****er was BLIND)
Bill Evans
Charlie Parker
Dizzy Gillespie
Count Basie
Django Reinhardt
Billie Holiday
Ella Fitzgerald
Art Ensemble of Chicago
Sonny Rollins
Eric Dolphy
Ornette Coleman
The Mahavishnu Orchestra

The great thing about jazz is that everyone works with everyone else, so you can pick up any recordings by any of those people, and they'll probably feature other people on the list or sidemen who worked with the others.

This forum is dying because not many people listen to Jazz, myself included. It is a sad state of affairs when the pop forum has overtaken the Jazz forum...

I don't know why I posted that before-I listen to more pop than I do Jazz. But I can realise that Jazz requires a LOT more talent.
