Hey Jazz friends.

>what're you listening to today?

>what is your favourite sub genre of jazz?
>>
>>54222057

i like pretty much all jazz but especially fusion, bebop, and modal jazz and such. i really also like that jazz influenced strain of post and math rock that seems to be making a comeback
>>
>>54222229
I've never really had an interaction with jazz influenced math rock, could you rec any bands?
>>
after sleeping on pretty much all jazz after 1980 and accepting the commonly spouted belief that it was all just rehashing of older versions of jazz I've been finally giving some stuff from the last 15 years. Some of it is actually very good and pretty unique.

I had been holding off listening to this Flying Lotus album, because I was so afraid it was going to be a really shit record, but as it turns out, this album is fucking amazing.

I have quite honestly never heard anything like it before. He has somehow managed to make Jazz sound gritty and harsh, in a world where those two things usually are considered polar opposites. Props to the dude for making some really quite unique soundscapes, imo.

Also, Thundercat is a fucking monster on the bass. Top notch album. I think it's an album hip-hop heads, people who are into experimental electronic music as well as jazzcats can appreciate, equally.

Listening to Brilliant Corners, I wanted to hear what the fuss about his playing was all about
Very enjoyable, I'm still kinda entry level in jazz right now, but I always love what I hear, and I seem to prefer Free-er stuff.
That said, cubop is amazing

>still kinda entry level in jazz

nigga please
you will probably insist that you like free jazz the best for quite a few months before you go back and dig into bebop and hard bop and then eventually come back to free jazz and realize you didn't even come close to understanding what you were listening to at first

This record is absolutely stellar.
>>
>>54223786
I'm indulging myself in some Charlie Parker, so yeah I'm also listening to Bebop
I wouldn't say I don't understand what I'm listening to, I'm competent in music theory and I'm interested in complex music. I guess I just prefer the interesting nature of free stuff.
Playing in a Big Band developed my interest for jazz, now I want to have something to listen to for interest, like a thing to test my music knowledge I guess
>>

i feel you brother.

there were times where jazz thread were the best in this board. Super informative and friendly and comfy.

jtg where are you bro?
>>
>>54224095
What do you mean?
>>
>>54223786
But free jazz is inherently plebbier as it is more enjoyable from a listening standpoint if you don't know any of the theory behind it.
>>
Anybody got some Billie Holiday recs?
>>
>>54224397
Because there is often very little theory behind it. If you only approach jazz from a theory standpoint you still aren't getting the whole picture.

Free jazz is more enjoyable of you understand the history and tradition out of which it grew. Even though it is harmonically and rhythmically more loose than bebop/hard bop/modal whatever, you can often still pick out some elements of influence from these earlier styles, whether it be phrasing, blues idioms, rhythmic patterns, or melodic statements.

I've always been a fan of modal & hardbop but lately ive gotten into a lot of avant-garde stuff. Lanquidity by Sun Ra is a great album

I just listen to Gato Barbieri's Latin America the other day. Highly recommend. Easily one of the most cathartic records I've ever heard.

My favorite sub-genres of jazz are fusion, post-bop (if there is such a thing), avant-garde, and free jazz.

I like Pastorius playing on Trilogue - Live at the Berlin jazz days

I have recently been tricked by the lineup of pic related, which didn't pleased me at all. maybe the fact that it was recorded to be used as the soundtrack of a Michael Snow movie should have warned me
