Default Re: Favorite Jazz Bands

To add to Xopethx's pretty good list, and Tuxidos Basie reccomendation I would go a little before & after: This is a list which exemplifies bands, rather than just the induvidual star musician that was associated with creating it.

Duke Ellington,

BR big bands.....

Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Thelonius Monk, Dizzy Guillespie, Charles Mingus, Bud Powell, Miles Davis, Sun Ra,
all led very well-known bands which left a significant mark on Jazz history..

....Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers,

The Crusaders

Alan Holdsworth,

Herbie Hancock

Chick Corea's electric & accoustic bands

The Zawinul Syndicate

The Dave Weckl Band

Yellowjackets

Karizma ( Colauita, Garfield, Steubenhaus, Landau )

Tribal Tech ( Covington, Willis, Henderson, Kinsey )

The Scott Kinsey Group ( the inheritors of the Weather Report legacy, IMO )

Bela Fleck & the Flecktones
