Tank, end of story.
Is that really jazz? It sounds a lot more like rock to me.
Tank, end of story.
The simple fact that you said that proves your lack of musical awareness. Although Tank is amazing, it is not the best Jazz out there. A large part of the music for Cowboy Bebop was to imitate the old jazz and bebop, so as awesome as it is, much of the originals that it's based on is better.
Sun Ra is freakinggood.
@Sail: Sun Ra did an album of Batman-inspired music. I've searched for a torrent of it, but I haven't found one that actually works.
@ Sail: I have never heard Sun Ra before and I will seek out some more of their stuff before I write them off, but that particular song was terribly done. The instrumentation was sloppy and the vocals were weak. Is that the standard quality for their performances?
If you honestly think that song was "sloppy", then Sun Ra definitely isn't for you. It's called "avant-garde" and "free-jazz" for a reason.
Sun Ra is not a very good place to start if you want to get into free-jazz unless you're already into experimental or noise music.
The rest of the songs on the Space Ghost soundtrack have a much more obvious jazz flow to them, I just couldn't find any other songs on youtube or skreemr.
And John Coltrane.
EDIT: Fuck, forgot Miles Davis.
Yeah, those guys all kick ass.
I forget who the band was, but my friend showed be an awesome jazz guitarist from it. I'll post a link to the video if they aren't already named when I find out who it is.
But this way kinda of repetitive and boring and started getting better when the drummer gets all on that set's grill.
This song is pretty wicked. Especially the Bass Guitar solo quite a ways in.
Also, mandatory Weather Report:
Also, Joe, *pssst*...
So excited to listen to this.
Sail, I don't know if you listen to Fela Kuti, but I just realized how much Pharaoh Sanders (particularly Deaf Dumb Blind and Black Unity) influenced him.
Highly recommend Zombie and Expensive Shit.
Peter Brotzmann's Machine Gun. Sounds almost like Wolf Eyes at some points. Speaking of which,
Anthony Braxton, insane sax and clarinet player, live with Wolf Eyes, devastating noise. Sonic nihilism.
Of course, in a thread about jazz, Coltrane is required. A Love Supreme is just as beautiful as the hype machine says it is.
