It don't mean a thing - The Duke (and anything else by Duke Ellington)
Tuxedo Junction - Glenn Miller
One O'clock Jump - Count Basie
Five O'clock in the Mornin Blues - Count Basie

and I like some Cab Calloway as well!!

I love his style, but I'm not a big fan of his wacky guitar tone of late. Metheny and Scofield definitely leading the pack though, watch out for Eric Krasno of Soulive Kickin' a$$ and takin' names. He's the future of jazz guitar!!!!!!

I love this "Moanin", as well as the Mingus song. Art Blakey is incredible. Wynton Marsalis got his start in his band.

Talking brazilian jazz

I would like to recommend you 2 Brazilian discs that were just released (I am living in Rio de Janiero at the moment):
- BADEN POWELL live in Bruxelles, recorded in 1999
- ED MOTTA, Aystelum, you can hear it at http://tudo.americanas.com.br/cgi-bi...Value=aystelum, on the back of the page

The 2 CDs are for the moment unavailable in Australia and in Europe (Iím feeling lucky to be there!!) but you can order it at SAMBASTORE. Itís an excellent Brazilian music store that only offers CDs produced by Brazilian labels. They can deliver anywhere in the world and freight is free for 4 items or more. Itís really worth seeing, have a look and tell me what you think about it, I would appreciate any comment (positive or negative)!!
