Hmm, I've been listening to a lot of jazz-inspired hip hop lately and acid jazz.

Here are some:

BadBadNotGood
Hocus Pocus
Thundercat
Nujabes
Common

Then, probably Medeski, Martin & Wood.

No one in particular , just checking the 2011 releases

I think the problem with a lot of the fusion music is that it's extremely predictable, it's a rock rhythm and the solos all play the same stuff and they play it over and over again ...

Doing evals for the site I get to hear several great new artists everyday. A couple that have stood out recently include the electro jazz-rock of NHX and the hard bop of Chris Colangelo. Probably the artist that has grown on me the most over the last couple months though is Charlie Parker.

Granted I understand this correctly, then I introduced of late just one artist in my hall of fame, him being Bill Dixon. Amazing free-jazz musician, four or five outstanding works at least and none of those being the appointedly classic Intents and Purposes (or maybe it's the original '67 tape that irks me; gotta check out the remaster).

Of new artists I checked comprehensively, there's McCoy Tyner, but I don't like him much (thanks for nothing, Hugues ErmmTongue) and I'm going through Art Ensemble Of Chicago (where Message to Our Folks might have floored me, against the popular People in Sorrow; meanwhile, I still can't crack A Jackson In Your House).

Particular albums I saved: Lou Donaldson's Blues Walk, Hampton Hawes' For Real! (both after seeing them reviewed here, cheers) and Maarten Altena Quartet's Rondendans, which I sort of really liked. New albums: Scott Fields & Matthias Schubert, Thomas Heberer, maybe. I like Marilyn Mazur's new album a lot, but liking Mazur in itself isn't new.

I like Marilyn Mazur's music as rule - her new album is between her bests. But as almost with any her release I like some moments ,but there are some fillers as well (or albums are usually quite bulky). I saw her playing live two or three years ago on open-air summer fest in seaside town - it was night concert where he played with her world fusion band (violinist,keyboards,etc) for few thousand listeners on scene ,placed on main square of Old town,between Jugend buildings. Absolutely fantastic show - kind of voodoo or shaman's ritual magic. No her album could be compared with this Smile

Been enjoying this band called Fortadelis. All their albums are free to download. http://www.jamendo.com/en/artist/tomislav.ocvirek" rel="nofollow - http://www.jamendo.com/en/artist/tomislav.ocvirek


I'd say check out their albums FUNKTIONAL or Convergence first.

I'm trying to think of straight up jazz rather than JRF.
Miles Davis is hard for me to shake.  I've got a good set of his straight up jazz albums as well as the fusion ones. But I'm impressed by the diversity of stuff from Cool through to whatever album you'd consider his last straight up jazz album.  Nadav Remez was a recent discovery thanks to The Atlanta Jazz Festival.  Sort of like a Jewish Pat Metheny.  I've gone gaga for Zorn, but I don't know if The Dreamers, O'o, and Nosferatu qualify as straight up jazz.

You reminded me of John Zorn's O'o and the fact that I haven't listened to it in maybe a year.

At the moment probably something like this:
Bill Evans
Miles Davis
John Coltrane
McCoy Tyner

I would like to get more into Bossa Nova if I can get my hands on some good recordings, so Stan Getz would be somewhere there.

This probably won't mean much, as I've just started listening to Jazz within the last few days. I guess I'm just setting a foundation for my Jazz listening at the moment. So right now I guess my favorites would be.

Soft Machine (of course)
Miles Davis
Ornette Coleman
Eric Dolphy
Lee Morgan

Trying to find people who are not exactly fusion ... It's more of a wish list of people who struck me and whose discography i have to explore :

Ornette Coleman
Bill Evans
Joe Pass
Thelonious Monk

The Pass/Evans approach of the solo instrument and the work on resonance (and sometimes dissonance) is appealing to me a lot right now - like what Metheny did recently. I love is Girl from Ipanema version.
If Monk and Evans had a brainchild he would be my perfect jazz pianist.

A cross between Bill Evans and T Monk might sound like Herbie Nichols.

My favorite is Bram Stadhouders. One of the youngest and the best improvisers around Europe. At this young age he has achieved great success. I listen to jazz only because of him. He is coming up with a new project called Henosis. Check it out and listen to the best music samples here -  http://www.bramstadhouders.nl/page1/page0/" rel="nofollow - http://www.bramstadhouders.nl/page1/page0/

"Henosis" is a combination between an ambient free jazz improvisation trio and a world-class 8-piece classical choir. CHECK IT OUT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!
