O aye Diana Krall I saw her on tv last year and meaning to download for ages. Shes a pianist isnt she? I didnt think it was really Jazz though.
Also Pat Metheny is an excellent artist.

She's one hell of a jazz pianist. Check more of her out. She is also married to Elvis Costello.

Yeah I have some stuff pending download I think. Is she really, I didnt know that.
I actually tried to get into Elvis Costello a few months back but just cant stand the voice. I got Elvis Costello -Best Of The First Ten Years compilation (only tracks I liked were 'Pump It Up' & some other one I cant remember the name of). I then went out and bought a couple of his solo albums 'Spike' (which i thought was crap) & 'Brutal Youth' which was in this book I have '100 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die' and I didnt like it at all really. I just dont rate him at all.
I always kinda knew I wouldnt really like him but I always give an artist a try if I keep reading/hearing good things about them.

I had the privilege of picking up this album about a week ago. It hasn’t left my stereo yet. Since you’re new there are some essentials to the Jazz community. I think it’s a good start with Miles’ On the Corner Session. You should then check out these albums.

John Coltrane - A Love Supreme
Jack Dejohnette – Sorcery
Miles Davis – Big Fun
John Ambercrombie/Dave Holland/Jack Dejohnette – Gateway 2
John Moulder – Trinity
Billy Cobham- Spectrum

Just to name a few.

Kneebody's Low Electrical Worker. It's certainly a masterpiece.

Evolution by Stephon Harris is also a great album, although because of it, I've been accused of listening to musak. Still a great one to check out.

peace,

I already got John Coltrane's 'A Love Surpeme'. I downloaded about another 10 of his albums.
I have actually recentley bought a live version of 'A Love Supreme' which is really good & also a 'Live A Carnegie Hall' with Thelonious Monk which was excellent.

I say Im new to Jazz in terms of Ive only been actively listening to it for the past 2-3 months or so but I already own about 40+ jazz albums & even more on download.
So your perception of me being 'new' as such is perhaps a bit jaded :laughing:

Most of my actual bought Jazz albums are from Miles Davis, surprisingly 'Big Fun' is one of the few that I havent actually got!
I much prefer Miles' later stuff;
I actually started out on 'Decoy'(which was my first ever Jazz album) & then 'Doo-Bop'. 'On The Corner' is probably about the 5th or 6th Miles Davis album I bought.

I have recentley blitzed his back catalogue and bought around 20 of his albums.
I now have all of his 1981-1991 albums :
Miles Davis discography - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Besides them the others I have are;
'Birth Of The Cool', 'Move' (Live Album With Stan Getz), 'Kind Of Blue/Porgy & Bess/Sketches Of Spain', 'Bitches Brew', 'Get Up With It', 'Dark Magus: Live @ Carnegie Hall', 'We Want Miles', 'In A Silent Way', 'Workin'/Relaxin'/Steamin' ',
'A Tribute To Jack Johnson', 'Miles In Tokyo', 'Files De Kilimanjaro', 'Milestones/Someday My Prince Will Come/My Funny Valentine'.
I now own around 35 of his albums.


Another couple I never mentioned are 'Miles From India'(which is a tribute album with Indian Musicians playing a selection of his music) &
'Conception'- Miles Davis, Stan Getz, Lee Konitz & Gerry Mulligan are the three main musicians+ there are around another 20 or so musicians who play on the album, which to me is incredible:
Tony Aless, Billy Bauer, Walter Bishop, Art Blakey, Arnold Fishin, Al Haig, Roy Haynes, Chubby Jackson, J.J. Johnson, Charlie Kennedy, Don Lamond, Stan Levey, Sal Mosca, Tommy Potter, Gene Ramey, Max Roach, Sonny Rollins, Zoot Sims, Kai Winding.
I had heard 'Kind Of Blue' but couldnt really get into it at first but what ive found is that through listening to the fusion/experimental jazz stuff I sort of been able to get into the earlier stuff through that.

Still, on the whole, I still find the fusion/more experimental jazz works more interesting than the obvious stuff.

Artists I have come to really like are Pat Metheny,Stan Getz,Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis, Bud Shank, Dave Brubeck... the list goes on.

The most recent Jazz album Ive gotten into is Bob James' very best of.
Also I got Pat Metheny's new album 'One Quiet Night' which is really good.
Surprisingly for him being one of the more 'out there' or 'popular' jazz artists it is really good and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

In reference to the Op, I havent heard of Billy Cobham, John Moulder, John Ambercrombie so i have jotted them down and will definitely check them out.
As for Dave Holland I have an album Pat Metheny did with him and Roy Haynes called 'Question & Answer' (1990).

That was incredible, possibly the best pianist of all time? I thought Thelonious Monk was good!

Cheers!
