Just curious what type of jazz some of you listen to. Like my blues, I prefer all of the old stuff from the early 1900's through the 60's. I have been listening to alot of Charlie Christian, Django, early Miles Davis,Art Blakley,Dave Brubek and a few others.

The older stuff just feels more genuine and authentic to me, like I mentioned it's the same way with the blues. I don't think there is anything wrong with the blues that is being played today, it's just my opinion. I don't think you can beat just a man and his guitar sitting down and just letting it go..Blind Lemon Jefferson,Charlie Patton,Robert Johnson,Son House,Mississippi Fred McDowell,Hooker,Blind Boy Fuller,Tampa Red and etc..

I tend to gravitate towards jazz and blues recorded prior to the 1980's. While I do love Stevie Ray Vaughn, I despise much of the "blooze" that came to the fore in his wake. Simillarly, the 1980's rise of smooth jazz and Wynton Marsailles' "necro-jazz" has done little, if anything, to move the art forward. With that some of my favorites are as follows:

Blues - Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, Blind Willie Johnson, Lightnin' Hopkins, Rev. Gary Davis, BB King, Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, Mississippi Fred McDowell, and Elmore James.

Jazz - John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon, Grant Green, Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, Larry Young, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Charles Mingus, and Thelonius Monk.

Post-1980's Blues - Otis Taylor, RL Burnside, and The Black Keys (check out "Chulahoma EP").

Post-1980's Jazz - John Scofield, Bill Frisell, Ron Miles, and Skerik Walton

I tend to like my blues older but do listen to the newer groups because they are keeping the torch alive for the next generation. But at the same time we have to remember the masters

I've been working backwards with jazz, starting with jazz-rock : Jeff Beck's "Wired" and Billy Cobham's "Spectrum." I still love those dearly, but my pursuit of Miles has led me to really love his 50s stuff; I love 50s and early 60s Miles, the early Herbie Hancock, Lee Morgan, Coltrane, Mingus, Wes. The more I hear some of the pre-electric material, the more I love it, just for tone and feel, so full and rich. Modern fusion has an unfortunate tinniness.

Having said that, Derek Trucks's "Bock to Bock" is sheer beauty. WOW!

Blues - I prefer the electricity. I love the early white boy blues of Mayall, FLeetwood Mac, Butterfield Blues Band, not to mention the Stones and ABB. I was on a major Mick Taylor tear for years. But I also love Howling Wolf and all three Kings.

bock to bock is a wes montgomery tune.

jazz..there is so much. what can be said?

same for the blues...tracing its evolution is really a wonderful investigation...although "blooze bands" are really quite lame.

its a good thing that we have people like warren and derek to honor the tradition and keep it vital.

I listen to it all. The old stuff is what I started on and was what got me hooked but there are many more recent players - both of blues and jazz - that I can't deny!

Jer, you pretty much nailed it here for me. Jaco Pastorius with Hiram Bullock "Live In New York City" sets are also very cool. There is a bunch of them.

I prefer electric blues rock to traditional acoustic blues. As far as jazz, Anything in the post war era through the sixties. Bird and Dizzie, Coltrane, Miles, Monk, Mingus.

As far as jazz goes, I've been listening to Duke Ellington a lot lately: Masterpieces By Ellington; Duke Ellington Meets Coleman Hawkins & the record he made w/ Frank Sinatra, "Francis A. & Edward K."
