Ok , I 've always wanted to make this thread my dad put me on to Jazz a while back and I have a lot of favorite jazz tunes, but the jazz genre is so rich and vast that I've been having a lil hard time finding more tunes and newer jazz artist. So I'm creating this thread for those that want to share their favorite jazz tunes, any type of jazz is fine from Miles Davis and John Coltrane to Christian Scott and Robert Glasper feel free to share especially if you know any new or slept on jazz artists with good music. Alright I kick off the thread with just a few tunes since I have so many favorite jazz tunes. I'll be sharing music in here periodically from new stuff to old school tunes. Enjoy

    Cool drop'em, I listen to a bunch of Jazz but I'm young so I'm just trying to delve into all of the music available, I need to do the same with soul music aswell since music nowadays is watered down and wack. I'll drop some more tunes when I see others drop some, the point of this thread is to share good music since jazz is so slept on and hard to come by. btw @iceberg white folks like that smooth jazz ish they don't know about Art Blakey, Jimmy Smith, Rashaan Roland Kirk, Donald Byrd, Idris Muhammad etc but my thing is who gives a 🤬 what white folks like, I like jazz because it's dope if you ain't into jazz then cool, but what white folks like is irrelevant when dealing with discussing our own classical art forms. Trust that white folks ain't thinking about 🤬 when they listening to Mozart, Chopin, and Beethoven.

    Yes siiiiir. Will do...........


    I remember going home from work and they would play jazz/r&b on the ride home on them Keith Sweat confessions joints lol. This one was one track that I finally found years ago and still jam it on my Ipod till this day called "AfterHours" by Ronny Jordan and been a fan ever since. Sadly, he just passed away this year. #Salute#

    (Al B Sure remake)


    Ronald Laurence Albert Simpson, known as Ronny Jordan was a British guitarist at the forefront of the acid jazz movement at the end of the twentieth century. Jordan described his music as "urban jazz," a blend of jazz, hip-hop, and R&B. One of the best album he dropped was "A Brighter Day" IMO.......

    @mrrealone thanks for your participation. I know about Ronny Jordan I heard after hours before it's a pretty mellow tune. Here's a tune with karen briggs and stanley clarke Karen briggs is phenomenal with the violin. Also here is a tune from a group called the kora jazz trio they utilize the West African instrument called the Kora I'd like to learn how to play it eventually

    um what else can I post I have so much music that I've listened too which is why I'm hitting a wall haha here's Fly with the wind from Mccoy Tyner just to top this post off I'll post some more stuff later

    Here's a couple of tunes from one of my all time favorite pianists Hiromi Uehara
    This one starts off a lil slow but when it picks up it is just musical excellence


    This one is more upbeat and dynamic it's my personal favorite her piano solo is insane


    I highly recommend listening to Hiromi and Chick Coreas duet album called deja vu

    Also here is a much more mellow tune from George duke called It's on with Marcus Miller and Lee Ritenour

    Thanks for the thread! I am looking forward to seeing more contribute.

    For now I am dropping some Esperanza Spalding, "Her receipt of the 2011 GRAMMY® for Best New Artist was unprecedented—the first time a jazz musician had won the award— but Spalding continues to make the unprecedented the norm." http://www.esperanzaspalding.com/

    I mainly knew him for that track "Masquerade" but that "Breezin" song is real nice too.

    My favorite genre... I know for a FACT that when I get older in age, this is what I'll be listening to more then anything. Jazz was the first thing I ever listened to. My parents didn't like rap and really didn't want me listening to it at such an early age. Honestly, I didn't really start listening to (and enjoying) Hip Hop until I was maybe 11 or 12. Without Jazz, their wouldn't be Hip Hop, period.
