What are your favorite jazz albums to smoke to?
What are your favorite albums that you think were recorded under the influence?
Are there any jazz albums that you never liked until you listened to them stoned?
Any other jazz related discussion welcome as well.
Let's try not to let the thread devolve into arguments about the decision to smoke or not smoke weed. Some people like it, some people don't. That's ok.
gotta admit there's some cool stuff
solo piano albums are also old favorites of mine to herbal meme to
This is pretty good so far.
Could you rec me some cool Cool Jazz?
I am already into Davis, Tristano, Mulligan, Brubeck and Evans.
Louis Armstrong was a notorious smoker as well.
A really old guy I know saw Louis Armstrong play in the 50's and said his band stood out back and just smoked weed in between every set
weren't Monk and Powell beaten up by cops for weed as well ?
Any opinions on Ravi Coltrane?
I never see him mentioned here.
Any opinions on Robbie Coltrane? The actor who portrayed Hagrid in the Harry Potter movies, and also played a pedophile bear in the Canadian movie "Gooby?"
I never see him mentioned here either I guess.
I think I have a cd of Ravi Coltrane at home but I can't remember what it is like. will try to find it back next time I visit my parents
I like Ravi's playing a lot. I'm not sure he'd be as well-known if Coltrane wasn't his dad, but he'd definitely make it as a player. He's got a very nice modern style with jussssst enough of a Coltrane-esque sound. He'll have brief moments where something he plays reminds me of his dad, but really incorporate it into his own style.
I could sit down and smoke to harsh music with maybe one or two of my friends, but most people have different taste, especially in jazz.
The goal is to put on music that anyone could enjoy.
