    Well Jazzbass is really your man for this but I'll have a go.

    I like the Oscar Peterson stuff and wholeheartedly recommend Night Train.

    Some others I like are;

    Count Basie at Newport
    Count Basie April In Paris
    Oscar Peterson Live from Chicago

    and its a bit jazz lite but the Tal Wilkenfeld album Transformation is pleasant enough

    While most of the above are generally jazz, the Oscar Peterson stuff has some of the blues in it.

    Try get them on Verve.

    Euan.

    Hi ESK
    Thanks for your pointers
    As a young lad my introduction to jazz was my brother and his dansette Box Record player playing mono vinyl like Coltrane /Gillespie.and others So problay explains why I have only got one CD of Dizzy Gillespie’s Best of Albums and a CD of John Coltrane Spiritual this album is a bit too deep for me
    A more bluesy stuff I have on CD and like most of its Sonny Rollins sax Colossus and Newks Time and of course the one and only Jazz vinyl I have and like Wynston Marsalis so I guess I am looking for good vinyl Crossing over the blues onto Jazz with a hint of Ella Fitzgerald type vocals

    Or Dee Dee Bridgewater. She did an Ella covers album that won awards and appeared on a few Stanley Clarke albums.

    hiya well i have just gotten in from a gig , foooking terrible , but i will tell you later,
    any way

    the you tube is great to get your bearings for the jazz, but yes without a doubt i have a biiig soft spot for all things wynton marsallis, also his brother is a great sax player, in fact wyntons dad is a great piano player as well , so just ppile in to almost all the wynton things, there are one or two recordings that i have that might get too much for a novice, but you will dig them later,
    please do try to get the julian aurgaliess (spelling). british sax player brilliant , with the trrinity guildhall ensemble , really good music also has a some of my old mates on it ,

    i would also recomend listenning if you can to the many radio shows , for jazz , evevn th escottish one has some good stuff the scottish one used to be terribl e, but it has got its act together.

    also dontforget , mr countbasie , probably the atomic reord,

    lots and lots out there , prehaps some members in hear will forward one or two of my mix ups to you , sadly i have non as i lost my putter a while ago.

    i have always added a couple of jazz tracks to my mix ups.

    regards
    jazzbass.

    if you pm me i will send you a couple of my old bands tracks , to listen too , very basic live recordings.

    regards

    also do look upthte personell on the records and get out ther and buy the various guys cds.

    Got to agree with Jazz about Julian. We saw him as a front act in Dunfermline a while ago, in fact Wii was there as well. Brilliant, he should have been the main act, but ther you go.

    well following on , i found this link on the you tube,
    a nice player and good musicin , i am trying to get a recording or two ,
    but also i would say if this was a much better sound it would nicely support my argument , about keeping it simple for recordings, any way
    seem to be talking to my self,

    so

    pittsburgh jazz:jimmy pounder- summer time.

    if this was recorded on a good set of stereo mics at the front, it would sound great , but this is just a opinion.

    i wonder of any modern company apart from mr russ andrews and his iso mike recordings would just consider this simple style of recordings, . i would buy them.

    regards

    Hi Jazzbass
    I also agree with the mic-ing method
    Thanks for the link but not shure about it
    I seem to prefer this Stanley Jordan All Blues link
