    I love music, all kinds and I am getting into new genres of music, especially, jazz, hip hop, funk and soul. In fact, I have been gone in and out of these genres for a long time but I don't have the knowledge to go further, I would need to spend a lot of time and money. So I need mentors.

    I am asking you, music lovers, to give me a hand.

    What are your favourite jazz, hip hop, funk and/or soul artist?
    Your favourite jazz, hip hop, funk and/or soul album?
    Your favourite jazz, hip hop, funk and/or soul song?

    I love:

    Jazz: Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Charles Mingus.
    Hip Hop: NAS, Immortal Technique, Jedi Mind Tricks.
    Funk: James Brown.
    Soul: Ottis Redding.

    Thank you very much

    Great choices in Hip-Hop! They are some of my favorites as well. If you like them, you should check out early Wu-Tang Clan (including the solo albums from Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, and the GZA), Killah Priest, Tragedy Khadafi, Canibus, Heltah Skeltah, Sean Price, Rakim, Crooked I, OutKast, Goodie Mob, Saigon, dead prez, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Common, The Roots, Gangstarr, Papoose...

    a great website is Last.fm - Listen to free music with internet radio and the largest music catalogue online There you can search for artists you know you like, and it will suggest similar artists.

    I like pretty much all kinds of music... I'm a music fanatic and my tastes go all over the place!

    I listen some to all 4 of these genres, although sometimes I'm not crazy about certain kinds of hip-hop. But I've heard hip-hop that I like, too.

    I LOVE funk! One of my favorite genres!

    One band I like that I rarely hear on the radio (or anywhere!) is Karl Denson's Tiny Universe:

    YouTube - Karl Denson - Because of Her Beauty

    I like lots more but it's hard for me to list a favorite artist or album.

    Wow...a wide open question. Not to big on most Jazz but I love most all music...especially R/B, soul, Hip-Hop, and dance music. Besides the usual suspects that I love ( Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim and many more ) you may consider giving these a try:

    * Ms. Dynamite
    * Miki Howard
    * Kelis
    * Alex North
    * Chante Moore
    * Dorothy Dandridge
    * M.I.A.
    * Estelle
    * Lisa Fischer
    * Angie Martinez
    * Sheena Easton
    * The Isley Brothers
    * Adina Howard
    * Sheila E
    * Foxy Brown


    Have fun! :smile:

    Love Sheila E! :smile: Especially "A Love Bizarre" - great song! The Isley Brothers and Estelle are good too. Not a fan of Sheena Easton, though... The others I'm not familiar enough with to have an opinion.

    Heh... I was just looking through some of my old school hip-hop records!

    Jeru The Damaga
    Tha Alkaholiks
    Del Tha Funky Homosapien
    Casual
    Souls of Mischief
    The Beatnuts
    Common (Sense)
    Jay Sinister
    Kurious
    Pete Nice & Daddy Rich
    Wu-Tang Clan
    Leaders Of The New School
    The Pharcyde
    The Roots
    Disposable Heroes of Hiphopricy
    any of Guru's "Jazzmatazz" albums.

    ... the early 90s was a GREAT time to be a fan of Hip-Hop. Very few do it like this anymore. I need some modern funk now... where's my Brand New Heavies CDs?

    Of the three you've mentioned I only like Jazz.

    And my appreciation of Jazz is centered specifically around Brazilian 1960s Jazz and Bossa Nova.

    The artists who immediately come to mind are Joao Gilberto, Stan Getz, and especially Antonio Carlos Jobim.

    Don't fucking put hip hop next to jazz and funk music, it's sacrilegious. Jazz and funk music is music played by individuals who play INSTRUMENTS and have musical ability that has been honed by YEARS of hard work and woodshedding. They write SONGS not singles.

    Putting the Ohio Players and The Weather Report next to Jay-Z or the Sugarhill Gang is like having an Old Milwaukee with your Chateaubriand.

    The musical talent of all of the rappers in the world still doesn't equal to the talent in Herbie Hancock's left testicle.

    I've always been partial to Blues, but big bands like Count Basie are quite awesome.

    Charles Mingus is also great.

    I always thought MercyfulFate was an old-time British metal band (King Diamond, anyone?)...

    Well it is an older metal band, you're correct on that, but they're Danish.

    I named my college radio show after that album. One of the greatest fusions of live music and Hip-Hop ever recorded. :cool:
