I'm looking for some new music. I've been playing along with various recordings of some standards for a jazz combo I'm in. I've discovered that my favorite group setting is a quartet with most of the focus on the key players. I've been getting into Monk a lot and I love his compositions and they way he always keeps the melody in mind when soloing. I like jazz that has really strong melodies that dominate the songs and are more about the composition. Not really into the 7 minute chops sessions. I was hoping to get some recommendations of some artist, new and old, or some albums like this that you guys love. I play with a big horn section so these guys are always making me check out horn players. But I'm really more drawn towards the key players. I just don't know of many of the "greats" or the really popular guys. Thanks for any help!
