Can You Suggest a Swing Song?

Postby Pocketplayer » Thu Dec 14, 2017 5:51 pm

I am seeking jazz tunes with the following grooves...mid to slow tempo
with the basic ride jazz pattern along with a bass line to complement.
I want as much ride as possible over hats, laid back feel, strong bass
line...thanks!

Around 120bpm, clear ride pattern



Here are examples...(vids saved at specific times)

What are you looking for? Tunes to play to?.. Tunes just to listen to?

Charts, drumless tracks?

I have a book by Steve Houghton that has some great play-alongs. There are some tunes on his site that are in that vein.

Found a YT playlist with some tunes.

YES...got Moanin'...having listened to about 25 jazz records,
found only a handful of tunes locked into the mid tempo
simple ride pattern...that hypnotic, meditative groove...

I switched up and starting searching bass players like
Paul Chambers...walking bass lines, might have to look
at more commercial "jazz" stuff used in movies or background
over jazz compositions...they're there, just takes time to find
