    so, those of you with a bit more refined musical tastes, who are some of your favorite Jazz artists/groups?


    that's right, I don't just like heavy metal.


    Pat Metheny, Maynard Ferguson and Jaco Pastorius are my all time faves. (of course with Jaco you get weather report!)

    The vastly under-rated Vince Garaldi Trio. That man had the chops. Herbie Hancock, and Frank Zappa's fusion experiments were amazing. But I still love the Duke and Louis Armstrong, and all the classics. I got the Ken Burns Jazz collection and it's amazing.

    They ruined Jazz for me in school. We spent 4 months on learning how to distinguish between different Jazz styles.

    I recently started liking Miles Davis quite a lot and also Dave Grusin. But that comes from them doing soundtracks or their music being used in movies. MD's "Solea" is over the opening titles of Almodovar's "High Heels". I had this movie on video and would listen to the opening titles over and over. Genius.
