General Jazz Discussion thread.
What do you think about jazz trombone? Who are your favorite trombone players? What are your favorite recordings that feature trombone?
Jay and Kay obviously come to mind, with Albert Mangelsdorff, Julian Priester, Curtis Fuller or Grachan Moncur III. my favorite record featuring trombone would probably be Blue train (or, if we're talking about records with the trombone player as a leader then probably pic related)
Figured out this far. But are there any musicians that stand out in the genre? Like, the essentials.
I havent researched much, but seems like it used to be quite popular branch(?) /genre.
Ornette Coleman's The Shape of Jazz to Come is a classic with that lineup. His album Free Jazz is pretty much the same kind of ensemble but with two of each instrument if you like him.
Some other good albums to check out, all quite modern is
Eric Revis - In Memory of Things Yet Seen,
Alex Sipiagin - Overlooking Moments,
Joshua Redman - Back East,
Jeff "Tain" Watts - WATTS
i'm just getting started at jazz and i really like this interpretation of Steve Gadd/ Petrucciani and Jackson of So What.
can you recommend me some tunes similar in vibe/energy/you name it
A lot of modern jazz comes to mind.
because most jazz fans are actually interested more in the music than just using the album cover as a neat accessory to show off your snowflake taste in a 5x5 last.fm thread
also the record labels usually design the album covers and usually try for a recognizable style
