Jazz Fans, Hello


#1

I’m constantly looking out for far-out/forgotten/weird stuff, figured there’d probably be others here of a similar inclination…

Right now I’m revisiting Dawn of MIDI’s Dysnomia, forgot how good this record was:

Squarepusher’s recent stuff with his band “Shobaleader One” has been really stellar too:

(Also Thundercat’s Drunk is unbelievably good)

Any cool Jazz/Jazz-adjacent stuff you’ve heard lately?


Don't post any songs

All the Jazz I listen to is pretty widely known, I feel like. Lots of Davis, Coltrane, Mingus. I’ve been on a bit of a Sun Ra kick recently though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oeAD-y6KFAU

Hello I’m a jazz fan. One record that I always put on is Susie Arioli’s all the way. Super good collection of standards, highly recommended.


#4

Hell yeah, Sun Ra! Growing up in Birmingham, I can confirm that The Magic City is a very accurate depiction of the place.


#5

Yeah, I’ve just started to dive into his catalogue, and it’s daunting, lol. I’ll put that on my list. I’m a Philly boi, and he spent a lot of time living and performing in a neighborhood not far from me.

i enjoy jazz but i dont super follow it. however, my go-to rainy day record is The Art Ensemble of Chicago’s Urban Bushmen.


#7

Hi I am a fan of the jazz! I tend to gravitate toward the loudest and skronkiest of free jazz nonsense, but I also like more traditional stuff.


#8

Jazz is the one genre I wish I was a lot more knowledgeable about despite liking almost every bit of it I’ve encountered. BADBADNOTGOOD has some great stuff out.


#9

I stumbled upon this album a couple years ago and I feel in love with it and just spent the last half hour scouring my youtube and google history trying to find it. I’m glad I did finally found it again.

Man, it took me way too long to get around to Hiromi’s latest album, but it’s what I’ve been listening to tonight, and I’m liking it a whole lot. I’d recommend listening to the full thing from start to finish, but this track is a good sample.

Anyway, I haven’t been keeping up with jazz too much lately, but, the new Necks album is good to chill out to, as they usually are.

And here’s maybe the most transcendent jazz album, just for the heck of it. Pretty well-known but of crucial importance:

Her’s some that’s uhh, untainted by rock music:

I’d recommend this track too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yD_M_auAr4o

Hiromi is honestly an inspiration, I studied Chick a lot in college and she just takes his technique into a whole other plane, it’s ridiculous.


#15

I love jazz and will be looking through this thread tomorrow at work to search out some of the recommendations! Most of my listening has been jazz fusion. I gotta say I love cheesy-ass Japanese jazz fusion a lot. T-SQUARE is my jam. Also saw Victor Wooten a few years ago and love his stuff.

What do ya’ll think of the movie Whiplash? The tracks in that movie have been in my jazz playlist for a few years now, and the 7/4 title track was one of the first really challenging pieces I learned on drums. Love that movie’s score, my god.


#16

This album is a fave of mine. Got the CD in college and I kind of forgot about it… Until I got a used car that only had a CD player in it.


#17

I’ve been wanting to get into some jazz, but I don’t really know what to look for. An example of a piece that I have found and really like is this performance of Fuller Love, and I’m wondering if any of you know of other songs with a similar tone and energy to it.


#18

every so often i just get fucked up and listen to the entire In A Silent Way Complete Sessions, don’t know if I’ve ever heard anything quite like it

Sour Soul was absolutely fantastic.


#19

Hey! I thought I’d share one of my favorite jazz pianists: Jan Johansson. The album is called “jazz in swedish” and is him taking traditional swedish folk songs and making them into jazz ballads. Some of my favorite music for relaxation, reading and studying. Enjoy!

Not that far out, but the 1993 Mingus version of Moanin’ is chaotic in the best way, we played an arrangement of this in high school (I’m a lapsed alto player)
