Blues and Jazz Reccomendations for new listener

Recommended Posts

I have a large variety of soul and rnb records. However i have only very little jazz and no blues at all. From my jazz "collection" i am the proud owner of Miles Davis' Kind Of Blue and John Coltrane's A Love Supreme. If any one can make just a couple of blues and jazz reccomendations, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

For jazz, try anything by Wes Montgomery (guitar) and Milt Jackson (vibes) as starters...in Blues you can't go wrong with B.B. King and, for 60's Chicago blues, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Lots and lots of others in each genre, but those are some of my favorites.

Get anything from Blue Note records, the ultimate jazz label.

For blues follow Koop's advise and also take a look to John Lee Hooker, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Muddy Waters, John Mayall. These are probably the most famous ever. Best blues track ever in my opinion is 'Thrill Is Gone' by BB king.

Good luck

I like the CTI label that Creed Taylor put together in the 70s

Some of the artists covered include: Stanley Turrentine, Hubert Laws, Joe Farrell, Bob James, Milt Jackson, Freddy Hubbard, George Benson, Deodato, Flora Purim, Paul Desmond, etc. All good stuff.

Check out the jazz renditions of Come Rain, Come Shine and My Favourite Things by Al Jarreau. Also recommended for new listeners is "Pithecanthropus Erectus", an ideal background, easy-listening cult record by Charles "Charlie" Mingus.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
