Man, no disrespect to you or any of the talented artists listed, but most of that is brderline smooth jazz which is usually what turns up the noses of non jazz fans in the first place.

Hello, my first post here,

Knowing what I know about the different styles of jazz today..If I was just getting into it I would go straight to the 60's hard bop, specifically Art Blakey & Jazz Messengers A night in Tunisia. That will give you an idea of the kind of energy and brute force of some real high octane jazz.

It's like the jazz version of a coffee enema

Yeah...it seems like good recordings from that era were a dime a dozen, these days it's a total crapshoot.

I also agree with the other poster who mentioned Dave brubeck's Take Five...that's probably the easiest way to get a taste for the music

Cannonball Adderly - Mercy Mercy Mercy would be another great choice for a more soul jazz vibe

Jimmy Smith - The Sermon, I'm going off my head here :P

I'm trying to get a hold of the double live album produced when they were just the Art Blakey Quartet.. I think its A Night at Birdland.
