Forgot about Metheny. I love that Jaco album!

Listen to The Inner Mounting Flame, Slim. Not very much imagination needed, my friend!

So you think it's "insane"?  Sorry you don't like it, I can accept it's not everyone's thing.  But he's done a lot of very different stuff since, a lot of which I prefer to the Mahavishnu material personally.
Lies run sprints, but the truth runs marathons.


I'm pretty sure he means "insane" as in McLaughlin's phenomenal playing being mind-blowing listening, am I right? :)


Ah!  Thanks for the translation, Carrie.

Yes, to translate for the other Americans ;D

Although of course if we didn't have any in the first place, we wouldn't need that ;)

Oh dear, oh dear... ::) lmao ;)


How many times......I'm not an American! But thankyou, Carrie. You are correct, I love TIMF and John McLaughlin because of its insanity. I recenly listend to JM's Devotion album from 1969 and I think it's fantastic. Not quite as crazy as the Mahavishnu material, but he's getting there. A great album for jazz people!

Yes, he's Canadian, that's like getting the English & Australian accents confused (as stupid yanks do all the time, of course). ;D lmao


I hold no truck with Jazz in general.

I can enjoy certain musicians, Louis Armstrong being one, or Brand X, but in general I can't stand it.


Mike Stern .. He is a great guitar player. My favorite albums are.

Is what is

Anything from Billy Cobham, Weather Report, Art Blakey and Jazz Messengers, Miles Davis, Vital Information, Steps Ahead, Spyro Gyra.
And thus begins the web.


QuoteI've recently started listening to more Jazz and Big band but I'd really like to expand my knowledge and listening to other people. The thing is I don't have a clue who is good or not. I love Nina Simone and I have some Frank Sinanatra and some Louis Armstrong.

More modern stuff like Jamie Cullam and Micheal Bubla(sp?) leave me cold, so I does anyone have any good suggestions?

Don't worry about what is "good". Use your ears and decide what you like not what other people say you should like.

Having said that The Brian Setzer Orchestra is good big band fun but I don't know if it is considered "good" by fans of the genre.

Analog RH

In a live setting John Scofield is always good value. I saw him play at the tiny Band on the Wall in Manchester a few years back and it was one of the funkiest gigs I've ever seen.

He played the London Jazz Festival earlier this week. Sadly I couldn't make it.  :'(
