Some jazz music I could listen to?
I also like jazz but I have no jazz songs on the top of my head. Can you give me some.

It would be hard to give you just songs. The list would be endless.

Recommendations also depend on the kind of jazz you prefer.

Yeah, that "request" is hella vague.

Stan Getz on A Night in Tunisia, live at Göteborg 1970.

Seriously, what are you after?

I was thinking more of vocal jazz, I'm not very good with instrumentals (other than, say, Miles Davis).

You could try jazzradio.com

Right.
('cause just "smooth" means a lot of different things over the last 80 years...)

So you're looking for the quieter side of the west coast, maybe some soft bob, maybe modal, but not so far as fusion. Almost more like slow swing or even lounge. You want more quartet style, or would big band cut it?

Whatever. Okay.

Chet Baker's your man.




Or maybe someone like Arnett Cobb?




Coltrane and Davis at their mellower:




A lot of Getz's recordings are harder to track down. But something like Spring Can Really Hand You Up the Most or But Not for Me...

Oh, but also the soundtrack to Louis Malle's Ascenseur pour l'échaffaud, where Miles Davis plays the loneliest noir-trumpet blues of all time.




Which leads ever so naturally to the apotheosis of French cinematic detachment, Le Samouraï. That's Francois de Roubaix's work.

RE: Some jazz music I could listen to?
Hello.

Recommending jazz is too difficult a task just out of the blue. Seriously, I could recommend thousands of recordings and I don't have the time to do that.

However, there is a method the OP can follow while performing his/her own research. It is refered to as The Miles Davis Method. Here's how it works:

Buy any Miles Davis lp. Look at the personel credits. Then buy an album for each of those individuals. Then check the credits on those recordings and follow same. Before you know it you'll have a library of jazz recordings of which you can be proud.

Have fun.

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.
