Cool What Piece Got You Into Jazz?

Jazz isn't always the most accessible part of the music world to listen to, but sometimes there's a song or an album that just sort of 'clicks', and gives you a better understanding of what it's all about. The same goes for other genres, as well.

For me, it was Stanley Turrentine's track Sugar.
First listened to it years back, rifling through my dad's old CDs. The cover art caught my eye, and so I played the title track; it was totally unlike anything I had ever heard before, and it caught me off-guard. A kid at the time, I always thought jazz was just some crazy-boring thing adults listened to, in order prove their maturity, but after this I just left the track on repeat, because it was just, so different. I think that's what sort of opened the door for me.

What 'clicked' for you?

I felt I've always been into the sound, from the Bebop and Cool Jazz you hear at the mall, in Disney movies, and during Christmas, to now things like Jazz Rap, Avant-Garde, Free Jazz, and Nu Jazz.

I don't think there's any one piece that got me into jazz, but I guess I first really started my listening with Monk's Dream.

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.

I'm actually really fond of that album, one of my favorites.

Can't say this in particular got me interested in jazz (which is only a small part of my listening anyway), but if I had to name something I'd pick this.

Not sure what the first one was but I'd be willing to bet this might've been it...
