I've asked this in the music forum and they directed me to here, I'm looking for an album for a friend of mine as a gift, who has just recently started listening to Jazz music, and is slightly enjoying it. I know he enjoys classical music, some ethnic music and also he is a fan of quite a few rock bands. I have seen many people who ran away from jazz only because the kind of jazz that they started with was a little bit "too" jazzy!! for them. So, I'm looking for something for an ear which is not biased, but also is not very familiar with this music. I would say he definitely enjoys European jazz like Tiersenn, or Tsabropolous, but it's hard for me to decide about what to get for him. He enjoys kinds of emotional music, not just technical music for professionals.
What do you suggest for him?
