Default one jazz album everyone should hear

Newcomers to jazz might enjoy going back into the early days of jazz, to listen to some Bix Beiderbecke. His melodic inventiveness is simply stunning, transcending genre by sheer musicianship. There's about 2cds worth of recordings left from Bix, who died in 1931 aged 28; make sure you get one with "Clarinet Marmalade" on it.

The jazz album I couldn't do without would be collection of Billie Holiday tracks, any collection of Billie Holiday tracks. I just can't resist her gorgeous super-sensual delivery, she was a wonderful instrumental soloist and her instrument was her own voice.

If you like your Jazz a little more funky you could do worse than check out most things on the Tappen Zee label.

This was me before I got into jazz. It seems that for a lot of people it takes a catalyst to break into the mode of appreciating The rhetoric of jazz music. I strongly recommend Bitch's Brew by Miles Davis. I'm not one to recommend fusion albums to jazz newbies but this album is really the exception. It's what converted me after a long spell of failed attempts to "get" jazz.

I recommended these Dutch performers in another thread:
Also I can highly recommend Dutch performers Benjamin Herman (also with New Cool Collective), Michiel Borstlap, Eric Vloeimans and Jasper Blom.
All worth checking out.

Considering I am a huge delta blues fan. I will just go ahead and direct you to some of the most respected, and heart throbbing blues artists I have had the pleasure of discovering.

Robert Johnson
Huddie Leadbetter Williamson (Aka: Leadbelly)
Mississipi John Hurt
Skip James
Charlie Patton
Blind Lemon Jefferson
ANDDDDDDDDDDDD Son House.

Hope you enjoy these great legendary blues musicians as much as i do!

Nostrovia!

I listen to Shirley Bassey - Chaka Khan - Aretha Franklin - Streisand and Eva Cassidy ... just begun listening to Ella Fitzgerald

my problem with Jazz is that i really get lost so much it's vast.

so if you could label the genre that i listen to ... so i could have like a starting point ...

and can anyone recommend the extreme opposite ... like if i want to change ... cause I've been listening to the above for 4 years and i need a wider taste in here.
