I'm just getting into jazz, but I've been looking for a CD of a group or band that plays contemporary jazz music, especially where the piano is emphasized. I enjoy that piano sound, but it's gotta be accompanied by other musicians.
Not sure if this makes sense, 'cause of the terminology I'm using. But I'm not into that slow piano stuff like those cats played in the 50's and 60's. It's gotta have a nasty groove. Sort of like a nice jam session where it doesn't seem to be rehearsed. Just a few fellas getting together on a Friday night to throw down.
Anyone understand what I'm trying to say here?
