One of the more often overlooked jazz artists is guitarist Emily Remler, who had a unique tone and exquisite phrasing.  It's a shame that her substance abuse issues got the best of her at far too young an age.

Played my first "jazz" gig last week. I think I did alright! There 3 three horns, a drummer, and a bassist, as well as a keyboard, so not really a high pressure situation on guitar. If I didn't know a tune or the changes, I just kind of colored the song a bit with some texture stuff, but even if I did, I tended to stay out of the keyboard's way.

I think my weakness was really the times I took a chorus on anything other than a blues, though. When I keep up with the changes, I still struggle with coming up with some kind of idea for how what I'm going for.

Anyone who could share some of their favorite jazz guitar players, feel free! I could use some ideas for sure  :biggrin:

That's awesome! Jazz is one of my weaknesses as a drummer, love to play it but I don't have the flow around the kit that I would like too. I need to do more live gigs.
I have a constant nightmare to accept a gig without knowing it's a bigband and showing up with 30 people excepting you to nail every hit in the music while dancing around the kit like Buddy Rich.  :| :D

I was thinking of who I know of the modern jazz guitarists today and realised I don't know of many at all.
I found this list of known guitarist today. Maybe you could find some inspiration there.

Some tasty funky in the pocket drummin with Stanley Randolph and a killer band. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=raja1uKoZHc&ab_channel=VicFirth

That vocalist is doing something to me, her voice just pierce my soul.  :heart

That is one of the funkiest jams I've heard lately. :hat

Just saw this cool article on Bandcamp, showcasing some great bands combining jazz and metal.

https://daily.bandcamp.com/lists/jazz-metal-list

I've listened to some of these bands but most I haven't. I've made a Spotify playist of all the albums discussed (bar one) and will share my thoughts I suppose.

I'm hardly a jazz guy but I do like jazz influences  :millahhhh

that Titans to Tachyons album mentioned there is excellent, but from most samples of the other stuff I would hardly call anything 'Jazz'.
Hey dude slow the fuck down so we can finish together at the same time.  :biggrin:
