Cowboy Bebop soundtrack :P The answer Jazz fans hate to hear from non-jazz fans

My contact with Jazz is mostly thru movies and anime too :)

Had a roomate in college who was into Jazz but never really got into it.

I'm not too familiar with jazz but recently discovered what a diverse genre it is. Some of it I hate and some I find fantastic. Went to New Orleans this year and watched Treme before going; great soundtrack which introduced me to some of the legends of New Orleans jazz. I think that's my favorite subgenre right now.

Check out Kermit Ruffins!

Jazz is super diverse.....you could probably spend your life just discovering new things within jazz.

There are a lot of artists I listen to, mostly the older set of artists, though I like some of the more recent acts.

Just to run down a list, some obvious....some newer:

Miles Davis - absolutely critical

John Coltrane - ditto

Thelonius Monk - ditto

Charlie Parker - ditto

Eric Dolphy

Dexter Gordon

Ornette Coleman

Dave Brubeck

Horace Silver

Yusef Lateef

Charles Mingus - ditto

Christian Scott - a young lion, headed to greatness

Mike Phillips

Wayman Tisdale - RIP...great bass player and former NBA star

Spyro Gyra

David Sanborn

Jason Moran - another great young artist

Robert Glasper - yet another young talent

Austin Peralta - ...and another

Aaron Parks - ...and another

Vijay Iyer

Last but not least - there is a guy named Madlib.....he's a hip hop producer by trade musically, but it's all based in a heavy jazz influence (his father is a jazz musician.) Pretty much everything he's every made is golden....and he's highly prolific as an arranger and producer.

That's what popped in my head in a few minutes.....and there really is SO much more.....

Wayman Tisdale - what a great bassist. His album Tales specifically the track Infatuation is one of my all time favorites.
