Glad you dug Aziza. She's not only an amazing pianist, but also a very accomplished singer.
Here she is doing an azerbaijani, operatic twist on scat singing.

^ wow, I didn't expect her to have such a powerful voice ! I was also surprised to see the list of famous musicians lending a hand on her Dance of Fire album.
And here's a track that caught my eye on YouTube; what an exquisite tone to her piano playing:-

If you can't find music on the internet, use soulseek. It's the program for downloading unfindable stuff.
^ Well, with a violin, an accordion and a kora in the line up, she's off to a good start, right?
Likewise, Aziza Mustafa is new to me.Thanks for the tip; I'll see if soulseek works for me too.

My rec today is the opposite of Muddy Water's rough blues singing - it really follows on more from grindy's post of Aziza M.Z., which is really beautiful. Regina Carter has made some mainstream and collaborative jazz albums, but much more interesting imo are two more recent albums; the charming Reverse Thread (2010) in which she explores her African heritage in twelve faultless tracks, of which this is an example:



Her next album, Southern Comfort came out in 2014, and she'll tell you about it herself if you listen to the two tracks here. Unfortunately, I can't find much of this album on the internet, so any help would be appreciated.

Thank you for posting this.

Since Rusconi just now released a new live album with Fred Frith, I remembered this older song.
I don't think they are particularly jazzy, but they are usually described as a jazz trio, so I'm posting this here.
Seems more like some kind of post-rock with Frith's usual beautiful guitar styling added.
As a bonus the clip is fun, well done and features cute animals.
What more can you ask for?

Thanks for the invite, man, but I'm still in the wee purist stages of jazz I mainly come here to leech off you conneissuers, muahahaha.

Seriously though, I had no clue that bluegrass was considered jazz. This should keep me busy for the next couple weeks

It isn't.
There are a few jazzy elements, but it's not particularly noticeable.

I'm still talking about Regina Carter. Some serious bluegrass influence, at the very least. Not all bluegrass is purist, either, after all

Oh, okay.
I thought you meant that bluegrass is a sub-genre of jazz or something like that. It really isn't.

You will never hear me claim to know anything about genre classification. I'll leave that to all you whippersnappers.
