Charlie Parker – Complete Savoy and Dial Studio recordings Initially regarded by critics as a lesser Miles work, it has gradually grown in stature over the years. He was a sentimental horn player, some say the best of his generation, but he was killed in a car crash a year after this recorded, so never fulfilled his potential. Second is Offbeat of the Avenues by Manhatten Transfer. Ella in Rome, the birthday concert or with Duke Ellington in Stockholm should SURELY be up high. Ca c’est superb! All others were, I believe, Brazilian. Imagine the opening of a French movie, as the camera pans across Parisian rooftops at dusk, and then drops several stories below before entering a small basement window.

Recorded with a classic line-up – pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Paul Chambers, trumpeter Lee Morgan, Trombonist Curtis Fuller and drummer Philly Joe Jones – the album consists of four very distinct pieces, each one representing a stage of spiritual development. His greatest creation was this, his 1959 debut for Columbia, on which propulsive uptempo songs (‘Better Git It In Your Soul’) were balanced with beautiful shimmering ballads (‘Goodbye Pork Pie Hat’, an elegy for saxophonist Lester Young, who had died earlier in 1959). If you put Heavy Weather and Bitches Brew and Mahavisnu on the list where is Return To Forever?

The album’s title – given to the sessions on their original album release in 1957 – reflects the influence the sides had on the West Coast “cool jazz “sound. The list needs more Monk, and Chick Corea’s Light as a Feather album. What about “Crescent” ? The list here includes all albums contained on three or more of the 22 original source lists. .

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. Workin’, Concert By the Sea is great, but also One World Concert and At the Piano are superb.

So good, I can’t choose which one to kick off to make room for Moran/Harris/ et al’s New Directions. Blue Sun – Mark Isham. Just my 2 cents…. This is the only Bud that’s truly amazing. Sketches of Spain…. Koop are another example of PoMoMoR (PostModernMiddleoftheRoad), a musical genre you’ll have heard in the last branch of the Elemis you inadvertently wandered into. Herbie Hancock – Maiden Voyage Basie – Complete Atomic Basie Despite this, Pepper – who claimed he hadn’t touched his sax for several weeks prior to the session – made a transcendent jazz record. Getz was looking to record the follow-up to Jazz Samba and Jazz Samba Encore – his two breakthrough LPs, which had resulted in the hits “Desadinado” and “One Not Samba”. 42.

The selections here aren’t necessarily all benchmarks, they’re simply the best records to listen to, the ones that will give you the most pleasure. but, come to think of it, no Shaw or Miller. Just wondering: Don Cherry – Brown Rice, Miles – In a silent way, Return to Forever – Light as a Feather…. No Ella Fitzgerald? There are certainly 50 best for each decade or sub-genre, style, composer, voice, instrument and geographic region (USA and World-Wide). I’d love to know who your jury was.
