Default Find something you like influenced by Jazz.

First find something you dig influenced by jazz and then research their influences. Hip-hop's got tones of jazz samples and usually will give props to that artist. I can't remember the name of the tunes but Tribe Called Quest has a tune with with samples fo "Red Clay" by Herbie Han****. What are some artist you dig with heavy jazz influence.

Default Miles Davis

You should check out Miles Davis "kind of blue". It's the most approachable if you haven't listened to jazz much. I listening to it on my dellditty right now.

Well, my favorite jazz (and pretty much the only jazz I have been exposed to) is off of the Cowboy Bebop soundtrack. Man, is it good...

That's how I was introduced to jazz (although now that I think about it, I'm not even sure that it's jazz). Great stuff, though.

pete townshend was a huge fan of Mose Allison and the Who actually covered some of his songs (in a more rocky way) - Young Man Blues and Eyesight to the Blind (actually a sonny boy williamson song but covered by Mose Allison and then the Who)

i'm a huge fan of tribal tech - if you're coming into jazz from a fairly rocky/grungy perspective (as i have and am) they're an incredible introduction to jazz fusion - the diversity and colour of jazz backed up by the raw power of rock. scott henderson (their guitarist) is now one of my favourites. i can also vouch for the goodness of miles davis, herbie hanc0ck and pat metheny. but i think boris jawaka above knows what he's talking about

Edit: But of course, how could i forget Weather Report! Thanks Music Man. I have "Heavy Weather" which is great.
