I like to listen to Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, some Wes Montgomery, George Gershwin and John Coltrane.

Modern stuff would be Pat Metheney and some early Mike Stern.

There is loads more out there though, Im just a beginner jazz fan!

I had a chance to be a piano tech for Pat Metheny, but I didn't take it because I wanted to finish school. :cry:

Robert Johnson might be good to look up Eric Clapton did a whole album of his stuff so that would be worth it

I like other styles too, but as I said Im new to jazz but it is worth getting into.

Robert Johnson is one of the most influential musicians of this century, he is one of the blues men that most early guitar gods (Richards, Clapton, Beck, Page, etc.) were obsessed with. Most rock music can be traced back to him, in one way or another. Definitely worth looking up, you can get everything he recorded on a two disc set (Complete Recordings). However, it takes a bit to get used to him (or at least, it did for me) if you aren't used to music that is a. so bare, it's just him and his guitar, and b. of lesser sound quality, it was recorded in the mid-30's and is a bit scratchy, which adds to the hauntingness of it. His life story is the stuff of legend, also worth looking up.
