Allan Holdsworth also has Canterbury connections through the bands Gong and Bruford
I thought it might be worth making a thread dedicated to Soft Machine so not to clutter up this one over @ link

Marc ribot is another one that I've become quite fond of. I was introduced to him through some medeski, Martin And wood videos. I purchased this album Marc Ribot Y Los Cubanos Postizos:Amazon:Music and really like it. There is some great guitar playin on it.

Aside from the ones mentioned (and thanks for the Frisell nod Tore, and Montgomery Blasting), Frank Gambale has been a favorite of mine since I got into jazz a while ago, after picking up a Chick Corea album.

Pat Metheney, and Alan Holdsworth are also on the top of my list.

John McLaughlin... hmmm... I bought a CD with him and Carlos Santana on it when I was in Amsterdam many years ago. Wish I still had it.

I'll add a few of my favorites who haven't been mentioned yet...

Gabor Szabo
Joe Pass
George Benson
Sonny Sharrock
Bill Frisell
Chet Atkins
Larry Coryell
John Scofield
Charlie Christian

There are probably a few more I just can't think of at the moment.

(After re-reading the other posts, I noticed John Scofield and Bill Frisell had already been mentioned. I'll leave them in my list anyway, because I like 'em and they're deserving enough for another mention.)

For the longest I've wanted to get more into Jazz and learn the technique. It seems a lot more complex than most genre's which is why I find it interesting. I'm totaly ignorant though as where to even start if I was to buy an album who I should buy or start with.

Is Chet atkins jazz? There's definitely a lot of jazz in his playing, i guess his playing covered multiple genres.

Blooz, I'm not really sure where a good place to start is. Probably the first jazz guitar album I got was "chester and Lester" by les Paul and Chet Atkins. In fact, I'm going to listen to it now. I'd say it's a good place to start. These two old guys could play as good as anyone these days. The album won a Grammy award for best country instrumental, which is kind of strange. I think it's jazzier than it is country.

My impression is that you like 70s rock and so on, so I personally think the 70s fusion groups would be a good place for you to start. It's a bit like jazz played by rock bands after all

When we did the Prog & Fusion Album Club, we discussed Jean-Luc Ponty's album Enigmatic Ocean from 1975 at some point and I always thought that could be a real good entrance into fusion for those coming in from the rock angle. The album features of course Ponty on his electric violin, but also guitarist Allan Holdsworth which is definitely a big name in jazz fusion.

Here's a link to the discussion : http://www.musicbanter.com/jazz-blue...an-1977-a.html

edit :

Ugh, there was only one other poster besides myself. Now I remember why I gave it up.

Glad to see he at least gets a mention. I'm puzzled by the lack of love for Wes. I love his work in smaller group settings (ie. non-orchestrated). Even in some of the orchestrated numbers his solos are amazing.


This is from Guitar on the Go with the Wes Montgomery Trio.

If we're talking about jazz fusion, I highly recommend "the inner mounting flame" by the mahavishnu orchestra. That album is absolutely great.
