When I was growing up,'The Shadows' Cliff Richards' backing band was very popular here in its own right with a string of instrumentals.

Il Silencio was also huge hit. I like the version below.

Here,"Amazing Grace" with bagpipes,was hugely popular.

Of course there is always this:

Great choices! Especially Bill Evans, a true master of jazz piano.

Here's one of my favourite guitar-based instrumentals. The guy is really skillful: [ame="http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VAkOhXIsI0"][/ame][ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VAkOhXIsI0"]John Butler Trio - Ocean - YouTube[/ame]

He was Miles Davis' favorite pianist for a reason wasn't he! He did have his way of playing in “the breath in between the phrase”.

"Music must always be singing" - Bill Evans

Really cool 12 string action on that video!

This was one of the first songs I learned to play, still one of my favorites

Cool! This seems to be quite challenging for a beginner. Well done! A great way to start your musical journey!

And since Miles Davis was mentioned:

He absolutely deserves to be here

Well, I took my time before learning my first few songs mind you! I learned segments of a mass of other songs, indulged in improvisational jams, you name it!

Aye, Evans was magnificent on that album... One of the greatest albums of all time if you asked me.

If you're looking for some other great Jazz, Milt Jackson should redefine the vibraphone for you... This album kicks all sorts of a**
