1959 was a banner year for Jazz;
Miles Davis -Kind of Blue
Dave Brubeck -Time Out
Charles Mingus -Ah Um.
if only Coltrane could have released 'Giant Steps' (1960)
I am stoked as we enter into 2015 and await the Jazz offerings for this new year. The last few years have been especially excellent for Jazz music. Happy Listening All!
I look forward to it- orpheus10-
your recommendation for OP, what are some of his best recordings?
2015 has been another banner year for Jazz.
Here's to 2016 and its continuation!
Thank You! for your Service- Schubert.
A great Christmas Jazz CD is the new one from India Arie & Joe Sample.
These are the last recordings for Joe Sample, whom died, in September 2015.
Happy New Year!
Matthew Shipp has (2) excellent cds in 2015.
laughing...there are many other countries that do not condone drug use/abuse and incarcerate their people for these crimes...
Fathead Newman is an outstanding musician. I am excited this new year
to keep discovering and enjoying Jazz music!
feel free to list the new releases in 2016!
Keep me posted & Happy Listening!
it is difficult to go against Monk. Keep me posted & Happy Listening!
Any one have the new Bill Frissell CD ?
I can hardly await the next great Jazz CD of 2016.
the (4) cornerstones of Jazz are from the year 1959;
Miles Davis- Kind of Blue-
Charles Mingus- Ah Um
Ornette Coleman- The shape of Jazz to come
Dave Brubeck- Time Out
Honorable mention- John Coltrane "Giant Steps".
these discs will get you started in the right Jazz direction.
Pharoah Sanders is always great!
Big fan of the trio as well- Brad Mehldau is one of the best!
As much as I love Jazz music, big band/swing does nothing for me.'
I am much more into Bop, Hard-Bop and modal Jazz styles.
Renee Rosnes has a new CD dropping in February 2016.
Any other new Jazz releases slated for next month?
I concur w/ you- every Jazz fan must own "Swiss Movement".
Blue Moon + Saturday Morning are (2) recent masterpieces by the master himself.
Big Peter Erskine fan here. He is a master w/ the brushes- love his work and did not know that he has a new release for 2016?
Charles Lloyd- forest flower.
I dig the West Coast stuff myself.
Shelly Manne comes into my mind on the West Coast style.
Monk- Riverside Recordings
Yep, "Speak Low" is a great Jazz standard covered by many.
let's talk about Jazz Bassists;
Scott LaFaro is where I begin as he was quickly hired by Bill Evans (the great Bill Evans). Was there anyone of significance prior to SL ?
Akua Dixon- CD is avail via CD Baby.
can you tell us more about your incident?
Much Thanks! Schubert-
for telling your story. It is imperative that we share all experiences here, positive & negative, for the rest of us. Sadly, eBay is just as bad, as every moron and I do mean moron, it is laden w/ really poor sellers.
I must ask, whom is "LEON" ?
Nope, have not heard of him???
back to leon- which recordings did he perform w/ Pharoah Sanders?
Many Thanks! orpheus10
which instrument does Leon play?
most "art" types are maladjusted, to speak the very least. This fact does not make them bad people per se. Happy Listening!
are these the LP/CD titles?
Was there a prominent Jazz bass player prior to Red Mitchell?
Yep, Afro Blue is a wonderful standard.
I will look into it- orpheus10-
Another +vote for "Bass on Top".
I will also look into Doug Watkins.
I am really digging Curtis Counce & Bohemia after Dark!
what is the title of the Duke album, is it avail on CD?
what are some Red Mitchell titles as well?
TY- orpheus10 & ghosthouse.
Was Leon similar to Donny Hathaway ?
Hang in there Orpheus10-
as above, our next Jazz Bassist is Mingus. Discuss...
IME, 1959 (the best year in Jazz) Mingus really took off both musically/professionally. Ah Um.
Thanks! for sharing- orpheus10 & rok.
I just heard something very nice by;
Jimmy Ponder- Alone Together.
Thank You- orpheus10- I will look into Abdul Malik.
Paul Chambers on deck...
