Actually, I am pretty sure this is off-topic as far as bass guitars go. But this is a frequently viewed forum, and I couldn't find the general music thread (if there is one). Anyway. In the last few month's, I've become real interested/fascinated with jazz and blues music. Problem is, I don't neccesarily know which artists to look for. Obviously, I want to find artists where the bass stands out, but more importantly, i just want some good blues and jazz. I've been playing bass on and off for about a year and a half (my World of warcraft addiction often fights with my bass addiction). I listen to all sorts of music. My favorite artists include RHCP, Primus, Led Zeppelin, and pink floyd. But I like all genres of music with the exception of new rap (I liked the early 90s stuff, but nowadays it's all about makin the white abercrombie n fitch kids happy [I am white, btw]). I love classical, house, ect. The only blues I really know is Stevie Ray Vaughn, the yardbirds (if you call that blues), and some random artists from the Blues Brothers. I really like the slow, but complex blues sound. Any artist/album reccomendations? And as far as Jazz goes, I am totally in the dark. I am more focused on finding blues music, but i also want to get some good jazz in my collection. Sorry if I rambled, and sorry for being off-topic. But thanks in advance for any help, and happy jamming.
