What do you guys think the best BB King album is? How about Buddy Guy and Dr. John?

I already have BB King - Live At The Regal so what would be his next best album?

Mingus is good, but my favorite by him is "Oh Yeah". He actually plays piano on it... fun, bombastic stuff. Not subtle at all; which I like, because I find most Jazz to be boring.

Buddy Guy is still on top of his game, BB King once said, "That Buddy is one artist that he could tell right off the bat, who it was by his style of guitar". He also still has an amazing voice for his age. His last album release of last year received fairly good reviews, except for the recording. It was recorded in the old "Chicago Chess Records" style of studio production (as to say). I would think that Buddy Guy deserves to receive the best studio production of the day.

I was inspired by your question to open up a thread, http://www.musicbanter.com/jazz-blue...t-tripper.html ,which might partly answer your question.
Gris-Gris is a unique, mysterious album of Dr. J. at his best. The albums that came immediately after ( Babylon, Remedies, The Sun,Moon and Herbs ) never quite recaptured the same magic - you could probably pick up their best tracks on a "Best of.." collection instead.
Don`t know too much about his later stuff, I`m afraid.

Hey guys, I'm relatively new to Jazz/Blues and I was wondering which artists I should pursue, I'll list the ones I've already researched:

Miles Davis
Howlin' Wolf
John Coltrane
Billie Holiday
Sonny Rollins
Bill Evans (my favourite so far)
Nat Adderly

Alec:

I really highly recommend Eric Dolphy's album, Out To Lunch.

It does definitely fall under more experimental jazz than anything, but it remains a very melodic and accessible album to those who've not had much experience listening to jazz. Here's the track "Hat and Beard" from the album:



Herbie Hancock is also a really good artist to look into.

Butterfly:


And if you've an interest in looking into free jazz, or even a little bit of different jazz at all, some artists I highly recommend:

Peter Brotzmann
Ornette Coleman
Albert Ayler (may be my personal favorite at the moment)
Sun Ra
Archie Shepp
Pharaoh Sanders
Django Reinhardt (One of the best jazz guitarists you're likely to hear)
Charles Mingus (BRILLIANCE)
Jaco Pastorius (He and Mingus are fabulous bassists, and well worth a listen)
Donald Byrd

I would say that The Doobie Brothers are not jazz, or blues particularly, but just judging by the info you've given, I'll recommend this album:

Oliver Nelson - Blues and the Abstract Truth

Thanks to both of you for your reccomendations, I'll be spending the night going through them. Satchmo you're right man, I've no clue why I included the Doobie Brothers in that list, I was just typing the names of the artists whose albums I had bought the other day, all were Jazz/Blues apart from them.

ThePhanastasio - I'm really liking Herbie Hancock, I'm listening to his songs on Youtube, which albums of his would you recommend?

Satchmo - I've got that album downloading now, it features Bill Evans who I adore at the moment so I'm sure I'll like it, if so I'll go out and buy it later in the week.

Cheers again both of you.
