I recently borrowed the Ken Burns miniseries on Jazz. Have only seen episodes 9 & 10 (contemporary jazz) and thought I should borrow some CDs. The only jazz CD I own is John Coltrane’s Ole (a favorite!) So, I’m starting with more Coltrane – his masterpiece A Love Supreme and Blue Train, today I’m listening to Giant Steps (excellent). I think with Jazz you have find the music that appeals to you, moves you, excites / inspires you. So, I’m moving on to Miles Davis Kind of Blue – something new for me. If you’re not sure where to start on your jazz appreciation, you may want to borrow some of the Burns’ Jazz miniseies DVDs – gives a good introduction to the music and showcases various artists. I enjoyed the fact that he included current musicians such as Wynton Marsalis explaining why certain artists / albums influenced him.

Fantastic music all around, and totally essential jazz listening. Easy on the ears and the soul. Paul Chambers lays down some real fine bass work too. ;)

One of the best of Coltrane, and more "accessible" than most of his later offerings. A good place to start if you are new to Coltrane.
