Some good Jazz bands/musicians?
Well I like to explore different types of music and since I've never really gone out of my way to listen to Jazz I figured I should.

So can anyone recommend a few good Jazz bands or musicians.

You should definitely start with Miles Davis. Get his best album "Kind of Blue". It's really incredible.

If you like blues? Id say: Cannonball Adderley or Roland Kirk.
If you like soul or gospel: "Brother" Jack Mcduff.
For something Funky: Joshua Redman or Jaco Pastorius.
For fusion Jazz, mening a mix of styles eg rock, funk: Weather Report, Miles Davis (from 68-) or John McLaughlin.
Something for those special moments: Chet Baker, Keith Jarret or John Coletrane "Ballads"
World music-jazz: Shakti or Zawinul syndicate

The list could go on for ever but this is a good starting line./ Enjoy!

What about George Clinton and Parliament?

Anyone shoul check out the song Maggot Brain - it's a 10 minute slow jam, very good and very relaxing. Also happens to have one of the funniest opening sentences I've ever heard.

The great Duke Ellington ones said when asked what music he liked: " If it sounds good, it is good.".

Yeah, sorry, I wasn't saying that in response to your post, just the threadstarters :)
