Yes, someone said Albert Ayler!

(interesting note: mike keneally proposed a record of ayler tunes to henry kaiser (because mike was listening to buckethead and wondered if bucket dug him cause his lines resonated as such), who ran with it and they ended up making a pretty cool record: http://www.fakejazz.com/fake/archives/2 ... ia_aur.php .. :))

I have been a jazz fan for many years. Some of my favorites are Joshua Redman, Pat Metheny, Sonny Rollins, and a New Orleans band called Astral Project (a band with a great guitarist, Steve Masakowski). Peace.

Now we have Hans Teeuwen as an new jazz talent here in Holland doin'
Frank Sinatra songs as wel a Ray charles etc etc.

And he does it briljantly. Perfectly sung with a great
band behind him consisting off a guitarist, bass, drums
and piano.

He's a big jazz fan I think, because He used to be an comedian,
But did some great takes on jazz here and there and mentioned
miles davis in one off his shows to.

So if you livin' in Holland or anywhere where you can
hands on a copy of the dvd Hans Teeuwen zingt* Go get it.

Jazz is okay, but I get sick of the swinging beat, and after a 1/2 hour of it that is all I can hear, and it drives me up the wall. Really that is the honest truth for me.

I like the guitar and fusion more. You stated that you did not want to talk about that though.

Well of course Coltrane and Miles and all of them are so great. I wish that I could listen to more of it but that beat really gets on my nerves after a little time. hehe.

Well as long as they played something like Latin or the subgenres that do not "Swing," I might be able to handle it. Swing all day long just drives me up the wall.

I mean a little swing here and more there, and then back to a straight 8th preponderance is what I like really. :twisted:

Im into George Benson and Lee Ritenour alot.
I wouldnt consider it trad-jazz, nor jazz-fusion.
It's more Smooth-jazz :)

Hahahhaah,
yeah that's a nice way to put it.
I'd say George is the Godfather of Groove.
Steve is the Godfather of creation!

I like everyone from Bill Evans to Larry Carlton, because I have a refined taste in music. Nah, but the older you get and the more your ear becomes accustomed to the tired old diatonic harmonic progressions; the more you crave for creative and colourful compositional ideas. Jazz has that in spades. 8)

I'm not that old but I now exactly what you mean...

After you heard a dozen of different guitar players in the style of joe or steve or after you listened all the (classic) rock you can get you still seem to search for more creative expression in music

and I think I found it in jazz
