anyone have any suggestions for some blues/jazz tunes to cruise around with?

i've been digging the 4duos videos... and they get an excellent vibe with some of their song choices. as a matter of fact... canned heat's "going up the country" is pretty fucking sick right now

yeah i know.. i'm a fag... but right now i'm digging a more mellow sound.

soooo... suggestions?

Im gonna say some Stevie Ray Vaughn, i know its not traditional blues or jazz stuff but its got that bluesey rock and roll vibe thats pretty chill and mellow.

Check out Steve Winwood - Gimme Some Lovin' - Not so jazzy but I'm sure whoever listens to this song will love it.
And for some old school hip-hop jazzy tunes, check out Diggable Planets.

I dunno if you're talking about wanting a few songs or full albums, but as far as a few albums go:

Tom Waits - Blue Valentine
Pretty much anything from Tom before Swordfishtrombones, when he got off the booze and got even crazier, will be just as good as far as blues/jazz quality goes. But this one is pretty damn mellow and as always his story telling is superb.

David Axelrod - Songs of Experience
I don't think this dude ever got the credit he deserved for his work. He arguably created the "fusion" (jazz, blues, funk and the occasional movie scoresque background) genre of music before Miles did with Bitches'. But this is a 2nd half of a two album piece he did that was influenced by William Blakes poetry/art of the same name. There aren't any lyrics. It's his take on what the poetry would of sounded like.

Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
Seriously. A must. Perfect late night cruising music. All of this was one take improv as well, which is pretty fucking incredible. Check out Gil Evans too if you like this. He played a big part on the driving sound of this album.

Miles Davis - Porgy and Bess
Another one with Gil, so it has some influence as Kind of Blue.

Someone on the Element website namedropped Grant Green, and it sounded familiar so I checked out his music...Alive! is very good, though a little "easy listening" at times.  Got that "Mouse" vibe to it.  A Tribe Called Quest samples his stuff a lot.  Dave Brubeck is good to skate to, too.
