never was a fan of jazz music at all and didn't listen much this genre.
Now, I wanna try a bit more.
Can somebody recommend some jazz music? plox.
Yesterday I watched Whiplash - movie. Very good.

thelonious monk - straight, no chaser
charles mingus - the black saint and the sinner lady
through this sort of music, i found stuff like:
miles davis - sketches of spain
my interest at that time in math & some other technical rock such as:
rumah sakit - sausage full of secrets
the flying luttenbachers - de futura
lead to discovering some more experimental jazz:
albert ayler - spiritual unity
eric dolphy - out to lunch
cecil taylor - unit structures
around the time i was into free & experimental jazz, i was also into space ghost coast to coast, and found out that sonny sharrock was a big part of the space ghost music. he has a really cool electric guitar style that fits with jazz. it's nothing like the jazz fusion stuff i never really got into (past the miles davis live/evil album)
sonny sharrock - ask the ages
i ended up really digging through last.fm for similar artists for around a year, and one of the more experimental guys i found was:
sun ra - space is the place
this is something you want to play in the office if you want to force somebody to confront you on your taste in music.
i found out at some point that the flying luttenbacher's song, 'de futura', was a cover of some other band, magma:
magma - de futura
while an awesome album, it isn't really jazz, but one of their earlier albums was heavily influenced by john coltrane, and is one of the other fusiony albums that i managed to really enjoy:
magma - kobaia
the magma guys sing in an invented language, and much of it is more chanting than singing.
before i really knew much about jazz, around the time i started to learn about math rock, i was also into some nels cline:
nels cline singers - divining
after my jazz phase, i ended up learning a little bit about the django web framework for python. i read some about one of the founders, adrian holovaty, and he explained that the name for django came from a jazz guitarist, django reinhardt. i checked him out, and it's very cool and very early guitar jazz:
best of django reinhardt
