    I would have scrubbed floors at Blue Note for Alfred Lions, just to watch all of the people who came and went over the years.

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Here's a stack of Blue Note albums that will make me forget the last post and helps to support the argument that Blue Note was and is the greatest jazz label of all time. Just a small taste.

    Not knowing who Jimmy Smith was is not the end of the world. Threads like these are meant to be informative...I just missed the boat on one. Now I know...

    Go ahead and pour yourself a nice, tall glass of hyperbole.

    It's a proven fact. Duke and his band can make blonde white women lose all control and dance in ecstasy.

    What do you wanna know? {retty much everyone starts with Mingus. Bop is really good starting point because it is easily digestable. Try listening to this record.

    What do you wanna know? Pretty much everyone starts with Mingus. Bop is really good starting point because it is easily digestable. Try listening to this record. Its not Bop though.



    These are my 10 essential non free jazz records that you must have in you collection. I've getting into really soulful jazz saxophonist like Ben Webster and Coleman Hawkins.

    Miles Davis "Kind Of Blue"
    Sonny Rollins "Saxophone Colossus"
    Sonny Clark "Cool Struttin"
    Lee Morgan The Cooker"
    Horace Silver "Song For My Father"
    John Coltrane "A Love Supreme"
    Dave Brubeck "Take 5"
    John Coltrane "Giant Steps"
    Freddie Hubbard "Open Sesame"
    Gil Scott Heron "Winter In America"


    Here are ten entry level jazz records people just getting into jazz get recommended by people who are into jazz
    Miles Davis "Bitches Brew"
    Albert Ayler "Spiritual Unity"
    Herbie Hancock "Headhunters"
    Charles Mingus "Black Sain"
    Eric Dolphy "Out to Lunch
    Billie Holiday "Lady in satin"
    Grant Green "Grantstanding"
    thelonious monk misterioso
    Rahsaan Roland Kirk Blacknuss
    Chet Baker Sings

    here are 10 recommendations from someone really real with jazz. Not like a cool dad like if John Hammond had picked you 10 jazz album. John would pick some records from the 1st patch but will omit them in thid list.You should listen to all these records.

    Ben Webster Soulville
    Eddie Cano Brought Back from P.J.s
    Bill Evans Waltz For Debbie
    Wayne Shorter See no evil
    Art Pepper Meets The Rhythm Section
    Jackie Mclean on adlib
    Dexter Gordon Blow hot and cool
    Hank Mobley blue note 1568
    Dave Burell Echo
    Peter Brotzman Machine Gun

    I am super late in the conversation, but I just wanted to say that sounds like a blast to me. I need some live jazz in my life. And I definitely need to start getting some records too.

    I've been ripping music all week. A friend is lending me his external in exchange of his pick thru my collectiion. My collection is in mp3 format. He wants everything lossless due to his fancy stereo system. He selected all my jazz. The music has been perfect with the weather these past couple of days.

    This is fantastic. I got the LP on a whim a while back and was revisiting it today. It's all solo piano work from, I believe, 1965 (the back is all in French.) I'm on the lookout for some mp3s to add to that collection if anyone can point me in the right direction. This is from about fifteen years later if I have the date right, but it gives you a good idea of the sound.

    In listening to some great jazz albums made this year--Austin Peralta, Colin Stetson, Matthew Shipp, and Peter Evans Quintet--I started to wonder what else might be out there. Most of the talk in here (and about jazz in general) is focused on the glory days, and I was just curious if anyone had any good recommendations of albums made recently that could one day sit among those classics in jazz discussions.

    I'm not so familiar with current jazz, but my musical tastes skew to the 50s and 60s anyway. I have, however, had the pleasure of watching Austing Peralta play on two separate occasions and he's great. The last time was a free jazz set he did with Thundercat last June. Guy is really good on the keys. Subtle.

    Most recently I've been listening to a lot of Charlie Parker, Art Blakey, Roy Eldridge, and a 3-LP Time-Life set on Lester Young that I picked up a while back for $6. Highly enjoyable. Roy Eldridge kills me, though, that guy was so good.

    I have to post this. I came across an article on MSN about a jazz cover of Cee Lo's "Fuck You." It kinda makes me smile.

    I've mentioned Michel Petrucciani on this board before.

    Over the years, I've attended 7 Playboy Jazz Festivals. The festival back then wasn't as diluted as it is now. Most of the artists playing were jazz artists. What does Ozomotli have to do with jazz? Anyways,one year I'm drunk and talking and sharing food and this guy starts playing. 15 minutes in, almost everyone stopped talking and were fucking mesmerized. He actually sobered me up a bit, he was that good.


    This is the best CD one I've heard from him.

    Juice of 1/2 lemon

    I saw that Archie Shepp and Ornette Coleman are playing concerts in SF this year. I'm a fan of a lot of their work, but didn't know how they were holding up these days. Anyone know?
