Some Jamendo recommendations

Edit: Unfortunately, the images originally included in this post are gone, because of hosting problems in late 2009. My apologies.

I should really start a category for my Jamendo posts, but I have a tendency to lump them in with Ubuntu things, since the two are synonymous in my mind. Either way, I have some suggestions, if you’re in the game for some new music.

I have eclectic music tastes, which seem to center around what people call “nu jazz” or “acid jazz.” It’s never anything I can put my finger on; I either like something or I don’t.

I’ll give you these, and if you dig them too, that’s cool. If not, that’s cool too. I won’t give much of a description, because I don’t believe the experience of sound lends itself to words. You’re the best judge of what you like.

First, two short and sweet, at about 20 minutes apiece.

Fonetik :: demo

sion :: Smoky Jazz Dub

Next, two along the same vein, but full-length.

wade :: midnight soundz

Antony Raijekov :: Jazz U

Lastly, two that are closer to pure jazz, with less electronic influence. If you prefer your jazz old-school, you might do well with these.

Margin of Safety :: Gonzo Jazz

Rehearsal Jazz :: SPIONEK

Remember that it’s all free, and you don’t need an account to download. I believe everything is available in ogg format too, so you don’t have to pollute your gNewSense installation with mp3 codecs. ;) Enjoy!
