Kind of Blue should lead you on to exploring other stuff - Miles with Gil Evans, Coltrane, Eric Dolphy, Charlie Parker, Art Blakey, Sonny Rollins, Charlie Mingus, Thelonius Monk, Art Pepper, Bill Evans, Max Roach, Ornette Coleman, Billie Holiday, Lester Young, Coleman Hawkins, Johnnie Hodges, Dexter Gordon etc.

To the albums mentioned, I'd add

Mingus, Mingus, Mingus, Mingus, Mingus - Charlie Mingus
Etudes - Geri Allen, Charlie Haden, Paul Motian
In A Soulful Mood - Charlie Parker
Birth Of The Cool - Miles Davis
The Incredible Jazz Guitar Of - Wes Montgomery
Monk's Music - Thelonius Monk
Folk Songs - Jan Garbarek
Billie Holiday's recordings with Lester Young and Teddy Wilson
Works - Pat Metheny

That gives you a pretty wide range without going too extreme.

I like a lot of Fender Rhodes electric piano. If you do, try Chick Corea's band RETURN TO FOREVER. I just bought the second album: "Light As A Feather." I am currently searching for the debut album entitled "Return To Forever."

Of course there's Chick in the Miles Davis band: BITCHES BREW, BLACK BEAUTY; FILLMORE EAST; LIVE EVIL; THE COMPLETE CELLAR DOOR SESSIONS.

Kind of Blue--Miles/Coltrane.etc.

get some Thelonious Monk,Charlie Parker & that'll be enough to keep ya busy--Duane,i believe listened to Kind of Blue for a year or so non stop...that tells ya that that album alone is a lifelong exploration....& it'll help ya see the jazz side of the ABB...& AFFS i sure hope ya covered all the blues masters my best to you & yours & enjoy the music


& Eric's thread may help....

Swiss Movement - Les McCann & Eddie Harris

The Best of Herbie Hancock

Red Clay - Freddie Hubbard

Herbie Mann Live

Dubble Bubble - The Crusaders

The Baddest Turrentine - Stanley Turrentine

but the very best way to learn and listen is to use your cable channel jazz station if you it - I have Charter cable and the jazz station is superb.

also > XM/Sirius..........Real Jazz.......if you have others vring it to you you will have no bias and a much larger frame of reference to start to understand jazz.........it is never ending.

GREAT choices from everybody--BUT--the one person everybody always forgets is Clifford Brown-(trumpet player)--I call him the Duane of Jazz---died tragically, immense talent, etc. You can listen to him on you tube--best song is Joy Spring---In his autobiography, Quincy Jones speaks of the time that Clifford blew Miles Davis off the stage in the Village. There is occasional talk of A TV movie,etc but has yet to pass--Matt Dillon the lastr I heard is trying to get some backing for the project-- The band included Max Roach and Richie Powell (Bud's brother who also died in the car accident)

That is the great gift of music in that you can never discover everything out there. Jazz is one genre that offers so much to be discovered.

Okay great...now the next step would be to throw out that pile of crappy, juvenile KISS CD's that you have. That's when you know you have really turned the corner... That nonsense will only cloud your Jazz senses.



One more modern Jazz suggestion for you would be John Scofield's "Bump" which is always in my rotation - Funky Jazz at its finest. Scofield is actually a nice bridge that links traditional Jazz with the more modern Avant Garde stuff...

check out this little number "Hottentot" with MMW to get your Jazz juices flowing...

Another great who was lost in a car crash (at 25) was Scott Lafaro, Bill Evans' bass player.

The nice thing about jazz is there are so many different hybrids of it: Ragtime, Big Band, Swing, Bebop, Hard Bop, Dixieland, Jazz-Fusion, Modal, Cool Jazz, Jazz-rock, Western Swing, Afro-Cuban, Funk Jazz, Avant Garde, and the Crooner Era- ALL worth checking out. I've noticed a lot of Rock fans (but not all) usually start with Miles and the jazz Fusion groups, which is a good place to start. There's not much I can add to the already impressive suggestions posted above so some I list will be repeats (they represent all eras of jazz): King Oliver- "King Oliver: Vol. One, 1923-29", Pee Wee Russell-
"Jack Teegarden & Pee Wee Russell", Duke Ellington- "Jungle Nights in Harlem", Tommy Dorsey-"1928-1935",

Y Machito- "Afro Cuban Moods", Tito Puente- "Puente Goes Jazz", Miles Davis- "Miles Smiles", Mahavishnu Orchestra- "The Inner Mounting Flame", Herbie Hancock- "Head Hunters", Tony Williams Lifetime- "Emergency",
Charlie Haden- "Quartet West", Art Blakey- "Keystone Three", Joe Henderson- "The State of the Tenor"
