I'm not sure that's jazz, but here are my two cents.

Lemme just say that that reminded me a ton of the Mission Impossible theme song, but there's no way you havn't heard that... right? On the slim chance you havn't:

I remember someone mentioning Diana Krall. I haven't listened to any of her music but we got tickets to see her in Copenhagen last week, unfortunately I wasn't able to make it because the guy we were going to stay with was having problems with his girlfriend so he couldn't have us stay. Beautiful girl though.
Good music?

I think Diana Krall is an acquired taste for a lot of people, when you first start listening to her. She does have great music, and has a great voice for the music that she sings. She's also married to Elvis Costello!

i'm not going to quote the clip again but the Cowboy Bebop intro is most definitely jazz and the title is a bit of a hint to the style as well (Bop / Bebop). it's a fast, funky, and furiously improvised style there's a lot of shared ground with fusion and funk.

The Seatbelts recorded a decent amount of material in that style for that series, pretty sure everything was composed by Yoko Kano or something like that.

you'd be wanting more stuff in line with Charles Mingus, Jaco Pastorius, Art Ensemble of Chicago, etc.

Triple Libra is a great introduction to Jazz influenced music.It features a very young Martin Taylor playing guitar and Peter Ind on double bass, who studied with Lenny Tristano in New York in the 1950's.
The whole album is breathtaking and displays a remarkable almost telepathic connection between the two musicians. There are some jazz standards ,some pieces by more contemporary artists like Chick Corea and some great original pieces as well.
It was recorded in London the early 1980s and is still available on the WAVE record label.
I was even lucky enough to hear the original masters over the studio monitors as our keyboard player was under Peter's tuition at the time it had just been recorded.
An absolute undiscovered classic.

Miles, Louis, I love both of these names. I wanted to get these onto itunes from cd quickly, but( as I may have already said, I'm tired and don't remember) it was too late. My brother lost them. He also lost my copy of The Chocolate War. Curse him.

Well, it has been said that if you don't like Kind Of Blue you won't like jazz at all. So I guess that would be the best place to start. Of course that's not entirely true, as you might like bebop or jazz fusion, and just not like modal jazz, which Kind Of Blue pretty much is.

I started listening to jazz like two years ago. So the first album I listened to was Kind of Blue, I didn't like it. It was to 'hardcore' for me I guess.
But then I found Candido's - Thousand Finger Man and Harold Alexander's - Sunshine Man. Those two records made me a fan of jazz instantly.
Jazz-funk may not be real jazz for some people, but for me it was a good place to start.

I do like Kind of Blue now
