The original post

I only know a few very experimental bands that play some kind of jazz. But I'm looking for some other bands that are a bit easier to listen to.
Like Supersilent. It's not -really- Jazz, I know. But maybe some people know this.
Does anybody know some nice not too common and experimental jazz bands?
Preferably with some rock influences, like Jaga Jazzist.

That brings me to my second question. Does anybody like hybrids like that?

This track is from the album; Divine Shadows (2006) recorded with Oslo Session String Quartet. I recommend Electric Sufi (2002) as a start.

Yesterday I was listening to Joe Pass's Virtuoso and Wes Montgomery's Fingerpickin', and today I gave the second listen to Al Di Meola's latest: Pursuit of Radical Rhapsody.

I could not get into Joe Pass at first. It also sounded like pointless guitar wankery but then I actually started to enjoy it. Wes Montgomery was fine too. I was cooking to both of those albums: kind of suitable music.

Don't really remember much of Al Di Meola, but it was enjoyable. I am in a jazz/instrumental mood actually.

John Coltrane wrote some fantastic compositions. The classic experimental album A Love Supreme is a favorite of mine. Packed with highly versatile layers, it suits many different moods. Ranging from love-making to soft drinking, there is no soothing atmosphere that it does not set. Of course, his traditional jazz compositions are also worthy of recognition.

Check out "Naima" from his album, Giant Steps.

Ascension is pretty wicked. Coltrane is rather hard to stomach at times, but he can be quite rewarding. I can't say I completely "get" him though, and I've never been all that interested in trying.

Giant Steps.


Great recommendation. Giant Steps is the one of the most iconic saxophone Jazz albums ever. This, along with Sonny Rollins' Saxophone Colossus and any number of Wayne Shorter's albums (Night Dreamer, Adam's Apple, Juju, etc.) are some of the best Jazz records period. It's great to see people on Metalstorm appreciating this great, timeless music. Highly recommended!

I'm not sure if there is anything to get about Coltrane. His styles evolved dramatically over his short career and I'll admit, his later, Free Jazz records (A Love Supreme, Ascension, Meditations, etc.) are a bit difficult to digest, initially. But I would strongly suggest checking out his work with Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk for some great, traditional modal Jazz/Bop. I would also highly recommend his Blue Train album, one of my personal favorites.

I highly recommend this, Pat Metheny and Jaco Pastorious when they were 20 or so.

You should definitely check out Bright Size Life by Pat Metheny, certainly a turning point in Jazz's music history.
Also in the Jazz department: John Coltrane (Giant Steps), Wes Montgomery (The Incredible Jazz Guitar of), Avishai Cohen, Bill Evans (Sunday at the Village Vanguard), Freddie Hubbard, Keith Jarrett (The Klon Concert), Kurt Rosenwinkel (The Next Step), Aaron Parks (Invisible Cinema), Wayne Shorter...
Fusion/Experimental Jazz : Chick Corea, Tigran Hamasayan (Aratta Rebirth), John Scofield, John McLaughlin, Esbjorn Svensson Trio (Leucocyte), Bill Frisell, Next Collective, Return to Forever, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report...
Rock/Metal with Jazz influences : Liquid Tension Experiment, Exivious, Animals as Leaders, Cynic, Disperse (Journey Through the Hidden Gardens), Steven Wilson, Guthrie Govan (Erotic Cakes)...
There are many other great artists you should check out and some of my suggestions might not suit your liking, but I'm sure you can find something among the names that I just dropped that you'd like.

Charles Mingus is great. The Black Saint And The Sinner Lady is just a part of Western culture everyone should hear.


If you're into experimental stuff, you should really check out Sun Ra. He was very eccentric and unique. Something like Jazz In Silhouette is a classic.



I second both of these. Also, Sun Ra's Lanquidity is pretty damn awesome. I'd also recommend Eddie Gale's Ghetto Music- a very unique and (as far as I know) not very well-known album.
