Jazz (Fusion?) - Help Me Find More

I have yet to find anyone that sounds like The Cinematic Orchestra. I'm not sure if this would be classified as jazz fusion or not.

The only group that sorta in that category is Soulive and Medeski Martin and Wood. idk if you would classify that as jazz fusion because according to the history books jazz fusion is when you fuse jazz with R&B or Rock music. In the 70s it was popularized with groups like Spyro Gyra, Grover Washington, David Sanborn. Later British groups like Brand New Heavies and Incognito took that concept to create this sound called jazz funk. Soulive and MMW imo is the next generation of jazz fusion. They take the idea of live music (soloing), fused with jazz funk r&B soul etc.


In your videos, I hear something similar to that in both SOulive and MMW.

I've heard MM&W before but never really thought of them as jazz. I'll give them another listen.

check out Ubiquity Records https://www.ubiquityrecords.com/shop...abel/Ubiquity/

They have tons of cool music - from random good jazz to electronica to soul to hip hop to break compilations. The coolest label I know of. Sometimes in November they have a big sale with CDs and LPs for $10 and free shipping if you buy a certain number. I've loaded up a few years in a row. Their CuBop label is good, too.

You might like this:

Other good albums:


https://www.ubiquityrecords.com/shop...OF-COOKIN.html
(This is a fantastic collection of jazz/jam/funk fusion!)

https://www.ubiquityrecords.com/shop...IVA-CUBOP.html

You can also just work your way through the sound clips of their "no categories" compilations to get a quick review of all their different stuff. Lots of off beat stuff that you might like. https://www.ubiquityrecords.com/shop...&sort=featured

Oh here we go:


https://www.ubiquityrecords.com/shop...HE-GARDEN.html

This is a really cool album.

"Imagine Breakestra hanging with Cinematic Orchestra, or RJD2 teaming up with the Ethiopiques and you're close to the sound of Nostalgia 77. Nostalgia 77 aka Ben Lamdin first burst onto the scene with his heavy, new funk based sound. The maturity and sensitivity of Nostalgia 77's music belie his relatively recent step into beat-making."
