26. Mai. 2012, 5:17 von kmullinThis is a list of hard bop and hard boppish albums. Recently, i’ve been feeling for hard bop – especially albums i havent really listened to much. And, i’m hoping to learn something.
Many are prototypical hard bop. Some are marginally hard bop. And, some are more post-bop, whatever that means. Some are somewhat cool (as in cool jazz), others somewhat soul jazz. And, sometimes free jazz creeps in. In other words, they kinda make up the mainstream trends in jazz and are mostly hard boplike. But, you should always let the music speak for itself – this is just for fun. (Theres not really any fusion here.)
Many of the albums are classic. Most are major works of art and craft. I dont know if i dig all the albums, but most are pretty good. If you check out about a quarter of these albums, you’ll get a real good idea of what hardbop is if it’s anything at all.
This is a long list because jazz is big. There are top 10 or top 100 lists, but this is a mother. …
14. Feb. 2012, 21:59 von brianshazaaamYou know the drill from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s lists. I wasn't originally planning on doing a 60s list, hence why it's appearing out of order, but I enjoyed making the other ones so I decided to put one together. Several greats knocked off because they were featured on previous lists, including John Handy, McCoy Tyner, Joe Henderson, Sun Ra, Herbie Hancock, Gary Burton, Alice Coltrane, Freddie Hubbard, Bill Evans, and Miles Davis. This means some obvious classics were lost (Maiden Voyage, Inner Urge, Nefertiti, Hub-Tones), but I kind of like that because it gives me a chance to promote other lesser known but great albums. Also cut were Sonny Rollins, Andrew Hill, Charles Mingus, Archie Shepp, Wes Montgomery, Oliver Nelson, Albert Ayler, Lee Morgan, and some wild free jazz blasts from the BYG label including albums by Dave Burrell and Alan Silva.

6. Dez. 2009, 10:19 von rompemonsterSat 5 Dec – Jean My Truong Quartet -but those expectations were of course due to lack of preparations (not doing the lfm check-up) -this guy (My Truong) has played with Joachim Kuhn, Mal Waldron and Jacky Byard... Great (though short) masterful show -especially liked the sax (as always), but the battery was also 'up to speed' at times. Great show and a great replacement for JakJazz...
I'll be scrobbling Mr. My Truong! (and not just because of the name...)

ecm stands for edition of contemporary music, and it's a label based out of munich, germany. their back catalogue spans as far back as 1969 with the release of free at last by pianist Mal Waldron, and even though it's mostly known for releasing jazz recordings, it has also released music from the likes of Steve Reich or Philip Glass. on this post we will focus on their rather interesting series called: :rarum, selected recordings.
the series is focused on allowing the featured artist to create a selection of their own recordings, either as a frontman or sideman. this is done solely to emphasize the input of the artist rather than that of label excecs, and in turn create a more introspective selection of tunes. …

Nel 1958 Alberti e Foresti avevano organizzato all’Antoniano un concerto con il Kid Ory e la sua Creole Jazz Band, nel corso del quale Kid aveva dedicato un brano alla Dr. Chick Dixieland Orchestra di Pupi Avati con grande disappunto dei concorrenti della Panigal. Il Concerto ebbe grandissimo successo per cui, nel marzo di quello stesso anno, Avati e la Dr. Chick, che avevano come manager Cicci Foresti, decisero di organizzare un nuovo concerto all’Antoniano, questa volta imperniato su una vera e propria sfida tra loro e la Panigal che vedeva finalmente titolare al trombone il giovanissimo e promettentissimo Checco Coniglio.
Il concerto fu varato come “Festival del Jazz Emiliano”, con il patrocinio di S.E. il cardinale Lercaro. Alla sfida furono invitate la Panigal, la New Emily di Romolo Grande, il Complesso di Amedeo Tommasi, e naturalmente, la Dr. Chick. Panigal ed Emily rifiutarono di partecipare, e furono tacciate di vigliaccheria. …

Now Max Roach has gone "to the place where happiness is everywhere." I hope we can all remember him as the great exemplar of Ralph Ellison's view that "the most authoritative rendering of America in music is that of American Negroes."
