I dont know much about jazz, I've discovered a few albums I really like over the years, would love to know more. Anyone want to recommend some artists or albums? I'm tending to use Youtube to discover stuff.

I love Charles Mingus, Miles Davis, recently discovered Horace Silver....I tend to go for Bluesy or melancholy stuff...

This is terrific;

I reckon you'd like anything on the Blue Note label record between 1958 and 1973. How about a bit of Lee Morgan followed by some Hank Mobley...

Really like the Morgan and Mobley stuff THWOTH- have explored further on youtube- great stuff! Thanks! :cheers:
The other two traks, though I can appreciate their 'quality, are less my cuppa.
I know there are complicated crossovers and links between styles but, put simply, the more of a soul/funk feel there is the less I'm likely to be enthused. Not sure why....probably some deep seated bias or mental block on my part.


A different feel but here are a couple of other tracks I adore;

By my reckoning Marshall Allen was 88 here. Hope I'm still blowing that hard at that age. :smoke:

Houston Press wrote:Houston and the world lost a giant today with the passing of Wilton Felder, saxophonist for the fabled Crusaders. Mr. Felder was 75. Word of his passing reached the Internet via longtime collaborator Ray Parker, Jr.’s Facebook page around 2 p.m. today.

Felder’s passing comes only a year after the death of his lifelong friend and fellow Crusader Joe Sample. Crusaders trombonist Wayne Henderson died in April, 2014, which now leaves drummer Nesbert “Stix” Hooper as the only living Crusader from the original four. Felder, Sample, and Hooper met early in life and formed their first band while attending Phillis Wheatley High School in the Fifth War. They added Henderson and took the name Jazz Crusaders while attending Texas Southern University, but they left school without graduating in 1959 and moved to Los Angeles. They quickly made a name for themselves in the West Coast bebop scene and recorded ten albums in the hard bop style of the day...

His solo on Street Life is probably as famous and familiar to non-jazz fans as the one's on Baker Street, Careless Whisper, or Don't Go Changing, but I've gone for this...


Wilton Felder - Tenor Saxophone
Wayne Henderson - Euphonium
Joe Sample - Piano
Buster Williams - Bass
Stix Hooper - Drums

The Guardian wrote:Phil Woods obituary
Fluent and creative saxophonist regarded as one of the world’s leading jazz soloists

The mid-1950s saw not only the first significant strides in the career of the American saxophonist Phil Woods, who has died aged 83, but also the sudden departure of Charlie Parker, bowing unceremoniously out of his chaotically brilliant life in 1955 at only 34. The young Woods played Parker’s instrument, the alto saxophone; he had Parker’s dazzling fluency and speed; and he had the master’s penetrating, blues-steeped tone.

Woods made no secret of his debt to Parker and in studying him obsessively he was no different from thousands of genuflecting young saxists all over the world at the time. But because he was better at it than most, he attracted more attention, and more misrepresentation. Even jazz aficionados tended to consign Woods to the shadow of the artist treated as bebop’s messiah, and as a result his independence and creativity were overlooked for long periods of a very significant jazz career.

Born in Springfield, Massachusetts, Woods began playing the saxophone at the age of 12, and was at first an admirer of the swing altoists Benny Carter and Johnny Hodges. He had a few private lessons in his mid-teens with the pianist Lennie Tristano, the architect of a new jazz style that presented a more measured alternative to bebop’s full-on intensity, and subsequently came to be labelled the Cool School. But Woods was too visceral a performer to turn down the temperature on his sound, and he remained closer to the direct and explicitly communicative swing of a rootsier kind of jazz....

http://www.theguardian.com/music/2015/sep/30/phil-woods

Shame. I used to flatshare with an alto player who quite literally thought Phil Woods was God (and that Richie Cole was Jesus), his enthusiasm for which kind of acted like a Phil Woods emetic for me. Luckily, I managed to overcome the queasiness some years ago. I'm wondering how that bloke is doing today...

Anyway, this is well worth 35 minutes of your life...


Phil Woods - alto
George Gruntz - piano
