I've toyed with the idea of looking into jazz. Not sure why. Not sure what I'm looking for. Maybe just something to sound good on my system. I realize jazz is a broad category but much of what I hear I have not been attracted to. Don't ask me what I've heard. What I'd like is a recommendation of two or three albums to start with. (I know that's insane)
And since I've given next to nothing to go on I'll point out a few things that I do like that might help narrow it down some maybe.
Jazz-like stuff I do like: Steely Dan. Almost all of their stuff. Van Morrison's jazz influenced stuff like Astral Weeks. I like blues. Delta and hill country hard core blues.
I like a wide variety of rock from heavy metal, to prog rock to classic R&B. Does any of that help? I know this is a crazy request but if I could get some recommendations I'll at least have somewhere to start. Not looking for specific recordings yet. Just content. When I find what I like I'll research the best recordings. Thanks for any possible advice. George
