I'm trying to identify four short found-footage video collages (or their maker) that I saw on public access last night, each with jazzy music, rhythmic editing and a clearly defined theme. This is a bit of a long-shot... [more inside]

What is this Jazz song, or artist, from the TV show Louie? I was watching Louie the other day, and the song during the credits is wonderful. Season 2: Episode 3: "Moving".
Here's the clip that I recorded:
You can also just hear it during the credits of that episode, if you go to Hulu.
My sincerest apologies if there is a less sketchy way to get you guys the audio!

I don't know much about music and I don't have a large music vocabulary - once you get past "bassline" I am reduced to saying things like "It was very squeaky yet melodic somehow, you know?" I would like some sources for critical writing about more complicated modern music. [more inside]

Asking for a friend: I've been listening to one of my favourite jazz tunes, “Time for Lyons” played in this case by Lionel Hampton. It's a lovely, dreamy, tuneful piece but I've always wondered about the title. It sure as hell has nothing to do with France... The composer is Gerry Mulligan and I'd wondered it was a drug reference, as in ‘Time for Lines’. Any clues?

Where are some awesome jazz bars in London? I am looking for somewhere that has a resident live band... the kind of thing you'd imagine Brad Pitt and George Clooney planning a casino heist in with both of them wearing suit and shirt with no tie. Whilst drinking Scotch. Bonus points if it's a place that has an entrance fee to discourage the riff-raff.

I love the music of Scandinavian jazz piano trios like Tord Gustavsen and EST and records such as 'Trio' and 'January' by Marcin Wasilewski-Slawomir Kurkiewicz-Michal Miski. Which similar piano based jazz albums should I check out? I'm after quiet, melodic, almost impressionist pieces rather than fifty scales a second fusion workouts or anyone playing the thing with their elbow.

Jazzfilter: I'm looking for the Ella Fitzgerald concert with this
version of "Mr. Paganini (If You Can't Sing It)" on it. Unfortunately, her discography says the concert (02/18/1961 at Concertgebou, Amsterdam) was never issued. Does anyone know where I can find this record?

Ever since this August's Sun Ra thread
, I've found myself digging deeper & deeper into his back catalog, which is at turns obscure, uneven, and daunting. I could use a little guidance to figure out which albums I should track down, and which I can skip. So, Sun Ra aficionados, which albums are your can't miss favorites -- the ones you return to, the ones I've got
to listen to -- and what makes them stand out to you? This thread
is of some help, but I'd like to cast a wider net than that OP did: any era, any group size are fine as far as I'm concerned.

I've finally managed to attend a jazz class. Our first homework is to search for the available melodic options over the chord changes of an F blues (ie over each chord). Could you provide me with an annotated roadmap ?

Trying to find a hip hop/acid jazz song that I heard on Qatar radio recently. It had rap and some Robbie Williams vocals. It may have the lyrics "chill out". That's all I have to go by.
