Im abit drunk right now but I just spotted this thread and I thought it would be a good place to ask about this kind of thing....
I was just wondering Ben if you know good jazz/metal bands... im sorta after anything related to those 2 genres really... just like some nice heavy jazz or some crankin metal with sweet jazz elements eh..
Sorry if this is the wrong place or I dont really make too much sense but I am fairly wasted at the moment and im just really keen at the moment...
If I may respond to this,I would say that difficulty to mix metal and jazz is in fact that jazz keeps running on lower borders of power,high-output energy...it's more like being a smooth all the time,tho I'm not talking of smooth jazz now
On the other side,metal is what it is,hard kicking,bursting etc...which I love of course
But putting chromatic stuff into metal is not really mixing metal and jazz,cause jazz is also about feeling,ambience,atmosphere along with scales and theory
