I've been listening to jazz quite a bit lately. I find it's helpful for work. Long hours recording data or typing... it's soothing and stimulating. Mostly I've been listening to Bill Evans and Thelonious Monk lately. I've always thought of myself as pretty jazz-aware, but I really just listen to the same five or six artists, all of them classics (monk, evana, davis, coltrane, gillespie) and a few others.

If you could recommend me any chill jazz from other artists, I'd appreciate it. No swing or be-bop please. I enjoy it, but it's not what I'm in the mood for. I want mellow, 50'6 and 60's shit. I've done experimental stuff too, and that's just not cohesive to the work environment, so keep it simple please.

Piano and drums are primarily what I'm looking for. Trio's along these lines.

Help is appreciated.

i'm kind of the same in that i mainly know 3 or 4 artists (Davis, Parker, Coltrane, Baker)
i've been blown away by John Coltrane this year. Love Supreme and Accension have been on my stereo more than anything else recently. He knocks me out.

but thats not what you're asking for so i'll offer Dave Brubeck for a very chilled and laid back listen
and *high five* for jazz

I don't know if it's the type of jazz you're into but I fucking love Archie Shepp.
A fantastic dude, at least check some of his stuff out.

I donīt also know is this what you are searching for, but ethiopian-jazz-man Mulatu Astatke is great! All his 1960-1970 stuff is put into Ethiopiques 4 -compilation, instruments on the songs are piano, organ, drums, bass, guitar, vibraphone and brass. And all the songs are instrumental.

Some of Herbie Hancock's pre Headhunters stuff might fit the bill. Especially his Maiden Voyage and Speak Like a Child LPs.

And if you don't mind his later more fusiony side Man-Child is a terrific album.

Chet Baker is about as chill as you can get. There's a good documentary on him called "Let's Get Lost" which may help the initiation.

Bugge Vesseltoft might interest you. His music is mellow for sure, provided you don't mind the muzak tendencies. Cinematic orchestra might suit your taste. Maybe Portico quartet?

For a while yeah.

E. Noisefield, if you're looking for more jazz then just look at the members of the jazz groups you already like. You like Coltrane so you might like McCoy Tyner, Rashied Ali, Elvin Jones, Pharoah Sanders, Paul Chambers etc.

Thelonious and Miles also, they tutored a lot of the greatest jazz band leaders of all time. Every player worth a shit could probably be tracked back to those 2 somehow.

check on the tyner/trane relationship. A lot of tyner's recordings are pretty nice, I recco Extensions and Asante, Fly Like the Wind also pretty nice.

for a newer pianist, one of my current favorites is Vijay Iyer. His solo and Tirtha recordings are pretty fantastic. Great songwriter, too.

Brubeck! Of course. I've heard him a few times. Should have thought of that.

Also, props for liking Ascension. You're talking parts I and II combined, right? The reissue? That shit blows my mind every time I hear it. It's probably the single most interesting piece of music I've ever heard.

Off to download Take Five. Thanks!

Thanks! Good suggestion. I'm looking for good drummers and pianists, so I'll just check the liner notes of the records I have. Also, I've heard of Pharoah Sanders, but never actually listened. Any particular recommendations?

louis armstrong? this statement shows that you literally have no understanding of jazz history, seriously nobody who has listened to jazz for more than a year could read that sentence without wanting to vomit, also the fact that the original post says no bebop or experimental and all that you listed fits in those categories(to be fair most jazz recorded in the 50s and 60s does besides easy listening shit,which was still mostly bebop based, so this thread is fraught with peril)

i know it's just a forum but stop trying to teach people things you don't know yrself
