    Anyone got some good songs by Cheap Trick.
    i don't give song reccs. but, Heaven Tonight and All Shook Up and Lap of Luxury are great
    afterstasis;2603322 said:
    i think the majority of cheap trick's best songs are actually their singles, particularly "the flame", "surrender", and "dream police".
    i love, love, love that song, sadly, they hate it

    Hooray, I get to be useful!
    Some of this probably isn't post-grunge, but who cares:

    The Freshmen by The Verve Pipe
    Touch, Peel And Stand by Days Of The New
    Plowed, Molly, and Wax Ecstatic by Sponge
    Counting Blue Cars by Dishwalla
    December and Shine by Collective Soul
    Clumsy and Superman's Dead by Our Lady Peace
    Santa Monica, I Will Buy You A New Life and Father Of Mine by Everclear
    Not An Addict by k's choice
    If You Could Only See and You Wanted More by Tonic

    Ack! I can't believe I forgot to mention Sponge in my rec post. They did STP better than STP.

    Thumbs up for Not An Addict, Counting Blue Cars, and Everclear, too. Everclear had a much more expansive sound than the average post-grunge group.

    How 'bout some recs for Don Ellis' work?

    I already have How Time Passes and I thought it was quite good, but I'd like some more.

    Also, give me some Jazz that has a good crossover factor for fans of Prog Rock.

    Stratus - Billy Cobham

    Try this song off that album: http://www.zeec.de/video/99588/3915/spectrum-billy-cobham

    Yes, I am uploading songs to an obscure German site to avoid copyright claims...

    Electric Bath is one of my favorites from Don Ellis. Also, if you're trying to get into jazz, you might want to look into Miles Davis' late 60s to early 70s work, particularly In a Silent Way and B[I]itches Brew[/I]. The Mahavishnu Orchestra are another good group if you aren't already familiar with them, check out Birds of Fire and Inner Mounting Flame. Just about any jazz fusion is a good gateway into jazz from a prog standpoint, however.

    I suppose it'd be good for me to mention what I already have!

    Ain Soph

    Miles Davis
    Charles Mingus
    Chris Potter
    The Mahavishnu Orchestra
    Chicago
    Don Ellis (obv)

    As far as Jazz/Jazz Fusion is concerned.

    But thank you for the Don Ellis rec. :)

    Billy Cobham ranks amongst my 5 favorite drummers of all time (along with Buddy Rich, Max Roach, Carl Palmer, and Elvin Jones). He is no doubt objectively one of the 10 best.

    Cobham's one of the few that can be crazy technical and still groove like a monster.

    Well, I'm not into fusion as much as other genres of jazz, but you might want to check out John McLaughlin's solo career as well as some albums by Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, and Chick Corea.
