Can you guys point me towards some good jazz & blues songs & bands?
Like good stuff to start of with?

I would really appreciate it, greetz

I suggest to listen such performers

Lizz Wright, Gregory Porter, Dianne Reeves, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Raul Midon

Especially, I like to watch live concerts.

In addition to what I already recommended, here's some more current free jazz albums.

Matana Roberts - Coin Coin Chapter One: Gens de couleur libres
The Thing - Bag It!
Zu - Asmodeo

I think you'll especially like the last two, being a noise fan.

I reckon that the best blues is by Robert Johnson- it's easy to find CDs of all his output. This guy is the original, a seminal influence over all that followed. He is raw, basic, unaffected, gutsy, as blues should be but rarely is. He sings like he's possessed by a voodoo charm, his immediate driving guitar playing shows a genius of technique and understanding of the instrument that is unequalled in his idiom, and he really sounds like he knows what he's singing about when he sings about whores, pimping, hard drugs, jumping trains, devilish curses, fast love, etc, as opposed to other singers who are just singing about it- this guy lived it, or at least it certainly sounds like it.

So I'm a newbie here. I've spent a large part of the year digging through Monk, Coltrane, Davis and Hancock. Mingus is up next. Where should I start?

What are the top 2 or 3 albums by him?

I'm wanting to find more jazz fusion now that I'm listening to Jean-Luc Ponty again. I need to get verything by Return to Forever, and maybe Chick Corea - Electric Band, and I've got all of Weather Report, so I'm looking for more fusion. Maybe even stuff that's mixed with world music, I duno, but I just love rock and jazz, or jazz and really anything else mixed in with it, since it almost always guarantees excellent music and intricate stuff and great musicians.
