A maze of twisting little passages, all different
Lots of sax (not that there's anything wrong with that).

Here's another one of my favorite jazz saxophonists - David Sanborn. (Note: I'm not sure if this is jazz - this is his band doing a cover of Al Green's soul classic.)

I'm a big fan of Weather Report, Billy Cobham and Pat Metheny, so I'm glad they all get a mention here. Billy Cobham is a complete master. The greatest drummer in the history of mankind.

I enjoy jazz, but my tastes run more towards something recognizable as music-- as in contains some sort of melody than the atonal noodlings of somebody like Sun Ra.

Nothing is better than a basic acoustic jazz combo with drums, stand-up bass, piano and trumpet. Vocals are also acceptable in my world.

Here's clip of Billy Cobham in action. He starts soloing about 24 seconds in. Power, subtlety, technical chops combined with nuance. The best.

Don't know if this is Jazz or not, but it was recorded a blues and jazz fest. I like it.
