Just getting into jazz. So far, Miles Davis and David Brubeck are my favorites. What else should I listen to? Anything out there that could almost pass for post-rock? (Like how The Samuel Jackson Five could almost pass for jazz?)

I’ll put jazz on quite a bit at work for some background noise that isn’t boring but I can also avoid focusing on. Will go through my history and post a few things.
Also, I make my kids listen to the local jazz station on the way to school in the morning. They’re only 3 and 5, but I’m hoping it sinks in. Every once in a while the older one will say she likes a song.

Check out some Django Reinhardt. Wife and I listen to his stuff all the time when making dinner or walking the dogs. Perfect background music, and it's always nice and upbeat.

John Coltrane is always great, too. I've been listening to a lot of big band and swing stuff when I'm out fishing, or doing stuff around the house. Just fire up Pandora, and it typically provides a pretty decent variety.

Awesome 70s Japanese Jazz inspired by 70s British Progressive Rock. A lot of it sounds like gnarly 70s movie / TV show soundtrack stuff, which might not sound like a good thing but it very much is! Hits me right in the nostalgia even tho I didn't first hear this album until this year.


I need more jazz like this
