If you dig deeply on youtube you can find anything...

I'm a jazz noob however i ve found some gold tracks and gold mines channels; just dig several hours and you'll find your stuffs.

Same thing in a record store; listen and dig.

Youtube is a goldmine for samples but you have to accept that everyone is digging down the same routes and finding the same stuff as you. Record shops are the way to go to find rare samples but it takes a lot more time and effort...and money...

If you are digging in a record shop either take a punt if the vinyl is cheap or find a way you can listen to the records before you buy them. A lot of the time if I think the cover is funny/interesting/cool I'll take a hit and see if I get lucky.

I remember watching a documentary about Shadow that said he used to go to a record shop every day and sit in there all day listening to records in the basement. The owner said the only times he saw him were open, close and at lunch when he 'went out to get a McDonalds'.

If you put the time in you will find good stuff!

Listen to Quasumoto - Jazz Cats madlib throws out a couple names . He even says “There's plenty more that I could name but ya'll won't put them to use” :mrgreen:

Also, I don’t think it’s too much different from finding soul samples. There’s key labels like Blue Note which is usually a good sign, and you can eyeball the covers as well look for musicians you recognize ( I found 4 jimmy smith albums last weekend , I didn’t know who he was but one of the albums was with Wes Montgomery so I knew I was good) . I personally stay away from the big bands and look for quartets and trios can’t really go wrong with those
