my favourite fusion album is Miles Davis' 'On the Corner', and I would recommend Sun Ra to anyone aswell, like Davis he dabbled in a bit of everything but with less commercial success. Plus his aesthetic was alot weirder and more mysterious aswell, he basically thought he was on a cosmic mission from the people of Saturn.

On the Corner is an interesting choice. I like that album.

Anyway, Herbie Hancock's Headhunters is THE funk jazz album... probably a good entry into jazz.

^My personal fave of Herbie's but not exactly a good starting point imo. You'd need to familiarise yourself with the elements of conventional jazz and electronica respectively in order to fully appreciate Sextant as a progressive work

Totally! Telling a jazz virgin to listen to Free Jazz is like pushing them into the deep end, whereas with Sextant you mightas well take away their oxygen tank, shove them into a tank full of strange fish and bid them good luck

INTRO TO JAZZ - Thelonious Monk - 'Straight, No Chaser'

or similar cool jazz classics. It's ridiculously accessible without being boring. I got into jazz reading the sleevenotes and listening to it on headphones, picking out the different instruments and when they had solos
