    jazz vinyl- recommend me a few please.

    I have a few by Miles Davis (Kind Of Blue, In a Silent Way) John Coltrane (Impressions. Coltranes Sound, Ascension, A Love Supreme) and a few Blue Note lp's by Dexter Gordon, Stanley Turrentine et al, but any aficionados care to point me at something left field i may be missing?

    Rather than give you a list of artists that I think you should listen to, I'll suggest that you look at who plays with Miles/Coltrane/Turrentine/Gordon on the LPs you already have & use those sidemen's names as a starting point to discover other equally fine (and better) musicians.

    A few hours with YouTube & some beers/malts will bring you a universe of top quality jazz & jazzers of whom you've never been aware.

    Currently playing this quite loudly:

    I was listening to an old recording of dudley Moore today. I had no idea he was such a good pianist.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish :)

    If you can find them then the Atlantic Jazz samplers are brilliant. The Post-Bop, Fusion, Introspection & Soul ones being favourites.

    This is the series...

    Dave Brubeck? And if you like smokey-voiced torch singers, Melody Gardot is pretty impressive - 'My one and only thrill' would be a good start.

    I have more jazz in my music library than anything else.

    Check out some Back Door - wonderful interplay between Colin Hodgkinson's creative bass playing and Ron Aspery's sax.

    And continuing the Herbie Hancock love in - Miles Davis 'A Tribute to Jack Johnson' - Herbie did a bit on that. Fabulous groove on the first track (Right Off) from Michael Henderson and Billy Cobham with John McLaughlin chippin in some expansive chords.

    Recommended to play turned up to 11.

    He was at Oxford Uni on a music degree having been a scholar at Guildhall School of Music. Comedy was something he fell into. Bill Bailey and Anthony Armstrong were similar (Bailey was an organ scolar I think and Armstrong was a chorister)

    Jazz at Massey Hall is available on vinyl and would be my recommendation.

    thanks guys, a few things to go at.
    currently listening to O'Donel Levy - Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky.
    I have a fair bit of fusion, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Jeff Beck, Santana, Herbie Hancock, Billy Cobham, Eleventh House, more pointers always welcome!

    As a boy, Moore used to play the piano at a friend of mine's house.

    Apparently, she could never get him to stop and he would keep on until asked to leave (politely).

    Have a listen to anything by Weather Report or some of Jaco Pastorius' solo stuff, 'Bright Size Life' with Pat Metheny, 'Land of the Rising Sun' with Al Di Meola or 'Sunlight' with Herbie Hancock. What about Marcus Miller? His early releases 'The Sun Don't Lie' and 'Tales' are phenominal!

    Wayne Shorter solo albums (again back to the Miles davis/Weather Report area. Depends if the OP likes older acoustic jazz or the later electronic/electric based stuff. Chick Corea - The Romantic Warrior or 3 Quartets are excellent

    Flippin' heck, when I saw this thread had been resurrected I thought 'I know, I can recommend Heavy Weather by Weather Report' which I bought a few weeks ago. Spooky.

    i saw that tour. As a young aspiring drummer I saw musicians playing far and away above what I could ever hope to play like (unless I went to music school/practised 14 hours a day and spent years in their company). But they were fantastic.

    If your a Miles fan, this, to me, is something like he'd be playing now .... Erik Truffaz 'Bending New Corners'. I used to us this as a demo disc.The band is very tight and in the high echelons of musicianship.

    I've been loving a lot of Art Pepper recently.

    Meets the rhythm section and Winter Moon have been some favourites.
