Ok, here's the deal: I started a new job last week, which permits me to listen to music (through headphones) while I work. I worked in a call centre before this, so I'm pleased to say that the sound of music wafting through my ears beats the absolute crap out of customer complaints. I've got a new (technically second-hand) set of studio monitors on the way from America, so gear-wise I'm all set. However, I'm wanting to get more into jazz and fusion as I've traditionally been more of a rock/metal guy. Don't get me wrong, I still love the stuff, but I like listening to music that's a bit more cerebral while I'm working, to help me keep my concentration and forget about the fact that working in an office means I did end up failing at my musical dreams. So far I've got a healthy dose of Marcus Miller, a few Tribal Tech albums, both Gordian Knot albums, a random collection of jazz songs titled "Simply Jazz" (mostly stereotyped stuff, but nice), a few Ray Charles albums, and I'm getting some Herbie Hancock albums. I like Marcus Miller, but he has a bit more of an R&B influence than what I'm looking for. I like the stuff I've already got, but I'm hoping to get some suggestions here to really broaden my musical pallet. As far as fusion goes, I like Tribal Tech and Gordian Knot, but I can't give you much else to go on there. With jazz, I find myself frequently drawn to funky, modern-sounding styles that have a fairly laid-back groove to them, and I seem to have a distinct lack of music like that in my library. I've heard a few less well-known artists playing music like that, and I always get a real buzz out of it but seem to forget who it is. Anyway, that's probably enough information to go on. I'd like to say that this website has been a fantastic help to me for many years, and I intent to continue donating to it because it's the least I can do. It's probably the single best online resource I've used for musical purposes..... though I'm not trying to guilt anyone into being helpful here in saying that Thanks in advance for any responses!
