    Any recommendations for blues/jazz music?

    Hi guys,

    Recently I've grown very bored with my current music playlist... Been exploring other genres, mostly blues and jazz.

    I'm really not sure about the sub-genres and it's really not important to me. (eg. thrash, speed, black, nu-metal etc) I've also found hundreds of subgenre while surfing itune's music store.

    Anyone can recommend me some blues or jazz music? mainly i really want it slow, soft and soothing music. something which can be played in the background, while reading a book etc.

    something like BB King's "The Thrill is Gone", "Three o'clock Blues"

    Jazz... maybe something with soft piano and saxophone in it. something like Kenny G. sorry for being a noob but some jazz music on the itunes store sounds quite upbeat. with this constant bassline. i find it quite irritating. :mrgreen:

    so if any1 has any recommendations, pls share ya? thanks a lot in advance!!

    When I think Jazz, I think Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan etc.
