I might be a goth-punk, but I am also a jazz aficionado, and am just wondering if anyone else if a fan of jazz. I personally learned how to play the guitar through jazz music, and am hoping to join a jazz group during a period of my life.

Post your fav artists, singers, instrumentalists, post it here

This would include Bop, Swing, Ragtime, all them types.

My personal fav artists would be Miles Davis, Django Reinhardt, Billie Holiday, and a local artist, Bill Prouton.

Im a fan of many genres of Music... But Jazz, I like almost all old stuff.
I am also a fan of very Jazz-influenced(and hiphop) bands like Portishead, Massive Attack, and Venetian Snares...

I've never been interested in jazz, per se, but there is one song, "Hotel Costes la Suite" by De Phazz. It makes a lot of mentions of jazz, as though it were talking about its own genre, but it's most definitely not what I would call jazz, more electronic or soft dance. I wanna know what the heck genre this is and where I can find more. And no, I've listened to more by De Phazz and it's not anything like that song.

Look up some Acid Jazz, that sounds somewhat like what you're describing.

Mark Farina has several mixes of it out, it's very fine stuff.

I love Jazz, hate to add nerdism to it but the Sam and Max soundtrack was a brilliant jaz score.

That's what I thought, and I will have to keep this in mind. Thanks.

I like Jazz to a point. That point being wankers who just play gibberish that really musically makes no sense at all its beyond improvision. I tolerate this as crap, it is crap. It makes my ears bleed and want a refund of the 30 bucks I paid to get in.

Only the coolest of the cool like painful avant-garde jazz

I personally love musical experimentation, such as avant-garde jazz and freeform

But I also listen to Industrial noise and power-core, so I'm probably not a good example :p

A friend went to a jazz concert, and they used wine glasses in the show. He said it was amazing.

Why hasn't anybody mentioned Nina Simone yet? I've also seen somebody called Greg Abate play live too at a school concert.

(Got interested in Jazz through Trombone :s)

I am a fanboi of jazz...i cosplay as all my favorite jazz musicians and then I have sex with other cosplaying jazz musicians for fun! XD

But seriously...I worked in a music(instruments and sheet music) store as a tech...a taste for any and all jazz is a necessity. I just hated getting into the "who is the most influential musician ever" argument...I'm always a sucker for Pastorius, but Charlie Parker is a close second in my book.

I was wondering when someone would mention Pastorius :p
