    I want to listen to more of it. Unfortunately I have no idea where to start. Anyone know where the best place for a curious newbie like me, would be to begin? Any essential albums? Compilations? Websites? Magazines?

    Any help much appreciated. Ta. ;)

    The bluesquest SACD is a good compilation one, if you've got SACD that's a bonus.

    Jazz or blues?

    My fav blues people:

    John lee Hooker (anything and everything)
    BB King same
    Look out for compilations with the above + Robert Johnson, Sonny Boy Williamson, Buddy Guy, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters...

    My fav jazz people:

    Art Blakey and the Jazz messengers,
    Miles Davis (kind of blue is the one .......apparently;) )
    Thelonius Monk


    Trouble with "jazz" is its split into plenty of sub-genres....I like mostly be-bop/hard bop....

    btw Bill Wyman did a pukka book on blues "Bill Wymans Blues Odessey" - (Dorling Kindersley - isbn 0 7513 3442 1 )

    For Jazz try "Jazz" by John Fordham (DK isbn 0 7513 0050 0 )

    I've got these, and the Bill Wyman one is great, the Jazz one is good for a grounding....

    Haven't had time to do anything recently. But managed to stop off in HMV during a journey from one busy place to another, and took a look at HMV's own Jazz offerings. Picked up a few compilations for £6 each. Sounding good so far.

    Thanks for the help. Hope I get enough time soon to use it.
