I do not know what they intend to do with what is left, but they have stated that they intend to release my album without me in some form and at some point in the future. West Coast? So callled cool or any kind later?
It seems that only in the USA are outstanding jazz-performances! But I can garantee you that in Europe the most beautiful music has been made that never reached the shores of America.
Just check You Tube so you can blow your mind!! The following are influenced by thrills only as imagined by the author, and it has no significant whatsoever to the work of the artists. Weather Report! I stop at the soul station just to see Hank Mobley I went to St. On the top of the Hill is the Point of Departure for Andrew. Here comes the Head Hunter Herbie Hancock Dexter Gordon — Go Dexter Go Whenever I listen to Sarah, I have Vaughan The people were thrill at Massey Hall when we see the Quintet.

We all know that Mr. Albert said to Aylerno unity is better that Spiritual Unity Eric Dolphy possesses the best Table manner; see him— Out to Lunch To Abstract the Truth, you must apply the law of Oliver Nelson Erroll Garner holds the Tide at one of his Concert by the Sea It is always a pleasant day when Mr.
Louis Armstrong came to my Town. I tasted Miles Davis Bitches Brew before, it was great. When Ornette told Mr. Coleman about the Shape of Jazz to come, he meant business.
It was in wonderful Copenhagen when Mr. Brubeck gave no Time Out, and the audience loves it. Here you have it, Mr. How about the Sachal Jazz Ensemble? Not sure how well known they are Stateside — they arose from the Lahore-based film industry, a group of veteran musicians who had fallen foul of conservative anti-western sentiments, interpreting western jazz standards.
But they are so much more than that. Check out their eponymous debut album They have been compared to the Buena Vista Social Club — that rare and welcome push to re-evaluate a genre and in this case to revisit some favourite jazz standards as well as listen to fresh material from an unlikely and unexpected source.
Try them. There is always some crazy nutter adding all the albums to a spotify-list with other great jazz-albums. I guess the most important person in Jazz is Louis Armstrong, because he had the most influence and made jazz as popular as it is unfortunetly was! So where are all the great recordings? Louis plays W. Django would be great to! He is the only european artist, who belongs to top 50 of Jazz!
Que hay de Chick Corea?. Nice effort, but why is there no Freddy Hubbard or Donald Byrd on it. In mho great influential artists…. Its a perfect record. The Song for My Father title track dominates that album, but Cape Verdean is a 45 minute masterpiece. Please try it all. No Gerry Mulligan? No Modern Jazz Quartet? Glad to see Erroll Garner and Stan Getz for sure. But if you are going to include Miles, especially Birth of the Cool, then it is silly to leave out John Lewis or Mulligan, who were there from the start.
Miles Davis: Kind of Blue 2. Bird and Diz: Last recording on verve 3. Duke Ellington — Hot Summer Dance 4. Dave Brubeck: Take Five 5. Billie Holiday : Stange Fruit. Thank you for this list. My jazz collection of records went from ten to one hundred.
Of course it is just silly: nothing by David Murray! On the other hand, if it promotes interest in the music, all well and good. There are one or two other superb Monk albums not listed here. Duke Ellington has been mentioned in many comments, and I agree. I think Blue Trane is overrated and I find much of Weather Report difficult to swallow particularly in terms of the LP) production.
Art Tatum should be there, more Rollins too…. So many……. Maybe I missed it but at least one of them should be on here? This is a great list. The important thing to remember is that it is just a opinion, and not a shot at your favorite record.
I bet the author even had second thought after publishing the list. Lots of great stuff mentioned, both on and off the list. Nice try, but no cigar. Great list. Thank you.
I even named one of my rescue dogs after him. Best dog ever. Yet Bitches Brew is the worst album that Miles ever put out. Self indulgent BS. And I love Miles. I would rather see one of Trains blues records on the list. One woman on the list. My dad grew up in the South, used to sneak into all-black venues to hear the early jazz artists.
He would shake his head at your list. They were also released LP) and are in the Top 5 according to this list. As mentioned, Joe Henderson is missing as a leader.
Are there no new Records? Concert by the Sea is not Garners best. And Hutcherson is great with barron In The Vanguard. No Phineas Newborn here. I would not include reissue compliations in the list. I would stick with original issues. And as Waltz for Debbie is an original issue taken from the Sunday at Village Vanguard sessions why list both? Thanks for this list and all the others. Suggestion: Compile a list of the greatest jazz albums of all times by relatively unknown artists.
I am a senior, and compile bibliography as a avocation. And so it is with jazz. Have been a jazz buff all of my life.
Many great players do not chose a public life on the road. Such a list would take years to compile, and would take the combined efforts of many jazz buffs, but could be extraordinary, and a great gift to prosperity.
What a nice post…. While I am familiar with many on this list, I cannot honestly say I have listened to them all nor can I respond to many of the comments above this. I would suggest two other albums for consideration. I can honestly say that was the single most talented band I have ever seen put together. Having seen them live in Rotterdam and then purchasing the recording, it is in my personal top A entire band of great band leaders!
Second is Offbeat of the Avenues by Manhatten Transfer. There are a few incredible cuts on that album that still blow me away after all this time.
I consider that album full blown jazz as opposed to a popular label. Several of the arrangements are truly magnificent. Indeed a terrific bunch of music, perhaps academic. So the Hot Fives and Sevens, which were never thought of as a unit, should be disqualified. Insatiable ME. I am a Miles man, but with miles to spare……. Too silly for words. Define what you mean by a jazz album.
Support The Music. Gosh, to even attempt a list like this. I love seeing this type of stuff because it invariably requires a lot of effort by the author, it will literally completely please no one, yet it always calls out one or two albums that probably deserve more attention. Sometimes just throwing a list out there to get the discussion going is just as helpful as actually making the list.
No Freddie Hubbard on this list? You clearly state in your 1st paragraph you will attempt to create a list. Thank you for a great source for me that continues the conversation. But i Miss Nefertiti, i think is the best of his quintet albums whatever quintet he played in.
And of course newer stuff. But 50 records are only 50 records. What a great comments section. I will be able to spend the rest of the year listening to some of your recommendations. There was a fellow called Jelly Roll Morton that made some pretty significant recordings. And of course Bechet. And it shows: there are 3 Coltrane albums on a 50 record list…. In my opinion the one above is pretty narrow-minded, sticking just to 50sss stuff.
Make your own list and publish it here. These lists are always subjective and reflect the personal taste of compiler. On that note, if I had compiled this list, it would include some Gerry Mulligan. No Grover Washington Jr? Especially Inner City Blues? I am disappointed with the list overall…:. There are sooooo many great jazz albums I can think of, and some are on this list. But the 1 jazz album that stands heads above the rest in my opinion is not even listed here….
Are Roy Elridge an Dizzy G. And Sinatra — listen to him as if he were a sax! Billie H. Bessi S. Sara V. Where is Billie? What about pre jazz? Is Armstrong really the only early recording that makes the list? Time to broaden your listening horizons folks. Nat King Cole only played swing? Too many free jazz and avantgarde to my taste.
Missing Tete Montoliu as a one of the top pianists. What about John Klemmer? The ignorance expressed on this list is representative of our time. What a ton of wasted effort on this inadequate list. The exact order is not so important. But what gets me about top jazz lists is that almost always the majority of the albums are more than 50 years old.
Nevertheless, there are a whole lot of great jazz albums recorded in the past 50 years. I own 4, of them! A few of the greats include:. Soft Machine — Fourth. Tanjah and Spirit of our Ancestors — Randy Weston. Afro-Eurasian Eclipse — Duke Ellington. Timeless — John Abercrombie. New Directions — Jack DeJohnette.
Lenox Avenue Breakdown — Arthur Blythe. Offramp — Pat Metheny. African Exchange Student — Kenny Garrett. Night Bird Song — Thomas Chapin. Blue Sun — Mark Isham. Dark Starr — David Murray. Angel Song — Kenny Wheeler. Joey Barron — Down Home.

In A Foot in Coldwater was formed out of members from two bands, Island and Nucleus, and a year later a self-titled album was completed. The second offering didn't do very well, but the band went on with a third, All Around Us. Some of the singles landed on the charts, one rising up to a Top Ten spot.
After the third album, A Foot in Coldwater ran into trouble. First, its record label folded, then there were some problems between members that cost them Bob Horne in There were a few more recordings, but things were pretty much over by In a few of the original members came together to Seasons - Steve Miller Band - Anthology (Vinyl a little.
Some of the albums from the '70s were reissued around the same time. They were relatively popular, particularly on the student scene and as a supporting act, opening for such bands as Genesis, Queen, and King Crimson. Future Legends is the debut studio album by North Irish progressive rock band Fruupp. Recorded in July and produced by Denis Taylor, it was released on 5 October in the United Kingdom on the Dawn Records label, a subsidiary of Pye Records for underground and progressive rock music.
To promote the album, the band undertook a two-month tour which finished on 29 November with a concert in The Whitla Hall, Belfast where they played with the Ulster Youth Orchestra. The track "On a Clear Day" written by Stephen Houston featured in the first hundred vinyl pressings of Future Legends but was later withdrawn from the album.
It resurfaced as a bonus track in the Esoteric Recordings remastered edition. Seven Secrets is the second studio album by North Irish progressive rock band Fruupp, released on 19 April in the United Kingdom on the Dawn Records label, a subsidiary of Pye Records for underground and progressive rock music. Like the band's debut album, it was recorded at Escape Studios in Egerton, Kent, but was this time produced by David Lewis, the frontman of another North Irish rock band Andwella.
Before Fruupp entered the recording studio, they had written six songs, but felt that the album's name "Seven Secrets" would be much appropriate than "Six Secrets", so Vincent McCusker composed an acoustic guitar and spoken song "The Seventh Secret" to ensure the album had seven tracks to match its new title.
The Prince of Heaven's Eyes is the third studio album by North Irish progressive rock band Fruupp, released on 8 November in the United Kingdom on the Pye label's underground and progressive music imprint Dawn Records. Recorded from August to September at Morgan Studios in London, it was the only album produced by Fruupp themselves.
The band supported the recording with a two-month tour which commenced on 24 October with a highly successful concert in The Ulster Hall in Belfast. In JanuaryStephen Houston left the band to become a Christian clergyman, and was replaced by John Mason, with whom Fruupp recorded their last album to date, Modern Masquerades During the recording sessions, Fruupp composed a song called "Prince of Heaven" credited for the first and only time the whole band.
It is about the album concept as opposed to being part of it, and for that reason was not included on the album and was released as the second single with "The Jaunting Car" as a B-side. It was issued as a promo on 4 October and became available at retail on 18 October. Modern Masquerades is the fourth and final studio album by North Irish progressive rock band Fruupp, released on 14 November in the United Kingdom on the Pye label's underground and progressive music imprint Dawn Records.
In addition to the production role, McDonald also played alto saxophone and percussion. Modern Masquerades proved to be the only Fruupp's recording without founding keyboardist Stephen Houston who had been replaced by John Mason in early The supporting tour commenced in Hastings on 5 December and finished in Manchester on 2 February Of course, that image was never an accurate portrait of the sort of artist Mitchell was - emotionally she was never hesitant to cut deep, even on languid acoustic numbers, and her skills as a lyricist, vocalist, and guitarist were estimable.
One might imagine that the ambitious, marvelously crafted jazz-pop of 's Court and Spark was an effort by Mitchell to prove she was more than just a moody girl with a guitar, and much of her subsequent music of the '70s and '80s was not just an expression of her eclectic muse, but an ongoing project to show off the range and intelligence of her musical impulses.
Mitchell has long been overdue for a career-spanning box set, and she's finally delivered one with Love Has Many Faces: A Quartet, A Ballet, Waiting to Be Danced, a four-disc song collection compiled, annotated, and designed by Mitchell with the stated intent of dealing with love and human interaction in its many forms.
At the same time, Love Has Many Faces is a writ-large summary of Mitchell's recorded legacy that finds her offering an idiosyncratic view of her career. The fact Mitchell wants us to recall "Dancin' Clown," an embarrassing duet with Billy Idol, is little short of astonishing.
Mitchell also presents several major selections in the orchestral re-recordings she created for the album Travelogue, and as she did on themed compilations such as Dreamland and Songs of a Prairie Girl, Mitchell has remixed a few of the tracks on this set.
As a consequence, while most box sets are intended to summarize the career of an artist, Love Has Many Faces instead presents Joni's own preferred perspective on her music, where the jazzier and more stylistically ambitious creations take center stage and Joni the Folkie barely exists. Some fans might find this set's point of view to be a bit curious, especially since it favors less popular and often less acclaimed material over Mitchell's more celebrated compositions, but in this context, many of these songs play significantly better than they did on her uneven projects of the '80s and '90s, and the lyrical strength and bold musical vision that inform this music are genuinely remarkable on nearly every tune.
For many fans, Love Has Many Faces may not be the Joni Mitchell box set they want, but as a summation of her own musical world-view, it's a powerful and revealing accomplishment. The numerous single-disc compilations never came close to being representative of her achievement as a recording artist.
Culling 43 tracks over eight years and 11 albums is even better in many ways than issuing an Armatrading box set. Even the darkest songs on this record hold out hope for a happy ending. Demon Records presents Distortion: Live, the fourth and final edition in a series of expansive vinyl box sets chronicling the solo career of legendary American musician Bob Mould. Quick View. Reality Suite has grabbed that sword and is waving it relentlessly in the face of close-minded and sexist parts of society.

After his appearance at Woodstock with an interim group that included Cox, Hendrix began developing new songs and recording demos.

Lyrically, they also explore new, more humanistic themes for Hendrix. The two numbers written and sung by Miles bear the stylings of soul music.

Shortly after it's release, Band of Gypsy's reached the top ten of the album charts in the US and UK as well as appearing in charts in several other countries. Although it was as popular as his albums with the Experience, it received mixed reviews.
