    Another of my "old school" favorites is Clark Terry, who I also had the privilege of seeing live. Here he is with one of the true masters of the craft, Count Basie (approx. :59 in video). Man, these guys could swing.

    Yeah man...Clark Terry rocks. Never saw him live but I saw a piece where he scat sings his solo. Simply incedible talent. In a "mellow tone" on flugel horn...pretty kool.



    LISTEN TO THIS!!!!! FOUND IT! scats at about 25 second mark.

    Another Clark Terry fan here. I got "Live At The Village Gate" a long time ago and loved it - such a great album. I'm particularly fond of "Brushes And Brass" but there's nothing on Youtube for that tune.

    Great vid, southpark. Check this version with my favorite pianist, Oscar Perterson (misspelled in the video's title, BTW. Idiots.)

    AWESOME!!!!!

    Reminds me of two BASS players that would bow their solos and sing the same melody at the same time.

    Major Holly and George Duvivier.

    Dig Ray Brown on the OP piece.

    Lester Young - Tenor Sax
    Oscar Peterson - Piano
    Barney Kessel - Guitar
    Ray Brown - Bass
    J.C. Heard - Drums

    Stumbled upon Buddy's infamous lambasting of his band while on the tour bus. I haven't heard this in years. It's an absolute classic.

    Any recommendations for newbie jazz-head?

    And whats the difference between 'Jazz' and 'Smooth Jazz'?
    Other than the latter being played in dentists' offices?

    real jazz includes a rhythm section and unstructured solos
    smooth jazz is the swill that Kenny G and his ilk put out

    That's why they play it in dentists offices to make the experience even more painful...thanks for the heads up.

    Fishooked: Do you find this sound appealing in any way?

    Start with Miles Davis "Kind Of Blue" (in the category of "cool jazz"). If you don't dig the ever-loving sh*t out of it and feel like you're the coolest motherf*cker in the world while you're listening to it, jump out the window cuz you're hopeless.































    Kidding of course, but it's DAMN good.

    I'm a huge jazz fan, all styles. Here's one on the more adventurous side.
