    Anyone a jazz fan? I'm a pretty big guru of jazz as well as blues and classic rock.

    I love jazz. It's so fucking relaxing. When I was in the Corps I would come home, grab a beer, flop on the couch and chill out to some Miles Davis or any other of the many phenominal jazz artists out there.

    And 'Kind of Blue' is hands-down the greatest jazz album of all-time.

    What are your favorite jazz artists and bands?

    Here's just a few of mine...

    1. Louis Armstrong
    2. Duke Ellington
    3. Miles Davis
    4. Charlie Parker
    5. John Coltrane
    6. Dizzy Gillespie
    7. Billie Holiday
    8. Thelonious Monk
    9. Charles Mingus
    10. Count Basie
    11. Lester Young
    12. Ella Fitzgerald
    13. Coleman Hawkins
    14. Sonny Rollins
    15. Sidney Bechet
    16. Art Blakey
    17. Ornette Coleman
    18. Bill Evans
    19. Art Tatum
    20. Benny Goodman

    I'm a big jazz fan. Not so much that Kenny G lite-jazz crap they play in elevators and FM "jazz" stations.

    Great list, by the way. Let me add Wes Montgomery and Joe Pass to the list.
