If you like the Ghost World soundtrack, you might enjoy some Robert Johnson.

I recently forayed into jazz. I don't know if this is what you're looking for, but I downloaded the Jazz History essentials from iTunes. Pretty pleased so far.

Never heard of the movie nor the soundtrack, can you give us a general idea of what some of its characteristics are? ie instrumentation, pacing, size, electronic or no, guitar etc etc etc...

Really? Ghost World is a great movie, well worth checking out. Pretty funny but also pretty sad story about a lonely, nerdy collector of obscure vinyl (Steve Buscemi) who is befriended by a snotty high school kid (Thora Birch) and the subsequent rift between her and her best friend (Scarlett Johansson). Based on the indie comic by Daniel Clowes and directed by Terry Zwigoff (Bad Santa, Crumb, Art School Confidential).

Ahem... anyway, the soundtrack is a mixed bag of everything from Bollywood to punk rock but most of it, and what Odyshape is asking about, is the very old, obscure delta blues that Steve Buscemi's character collects the 78s of.

Get some Miles Davis, hes who I started out on, Or some John Coltrane, if your already into guitar based music you might find it easier to listen to the likes or Pat Metheny or even Tortoise. Stan Getz is amazing also Herbie Han****. The latest i got into is Thelonious Monk who is incredible. I have been totally gobsmacked at how great Jazz is and how talented the musicians are. Now I feel like an idiot for dismissing it in the past without actually hearing it first.

All great musicians but none of them are really in the vein of what the OP is talking about.
