Which do I like Jazz or Blues?
I like a certain style of music and since I don't know what to call it, it has been difficult for me to find. I like instrumental music with relaxing wind instruments. Closest I've been able to find is this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzpXw5hgMAU
Artist names would be appreciated

OK more then a couple...lol
This one is a Masterpiece with some of the best players. They are listed on the video.
I know you said wind, now Gerry Mulligan was one great sax man but he also played piano and just had to throw this one in. If this doesn't relax you nothing will.

God don't you just love music, washes your soul and if only for the moments your hearing it, allows you to escape at times a miserable reality. To me whether blues is expressed in the form of guitar, vocals, horns...whatever it still is blues. Now the fact you can enjoy it in any form shows your hearing not with your ears but your heart. Blues, Jazz....
Savor it all and enjoy.
