20 Feb 2009, 21:38 by jazzwhizA friend did a similar thing and although I wanted to do the same, I realized there was a problem: not very many people would be familiar with my music. Thus listing off the top x albums as my favorite would be silly. So I explained each. Sometimes to a general audience, and sometimes to a more familiar audience.
These are listed in no particular order (not entirely true - I listed off some as they came to mind, but generally went through my music alphabetically so as to not miss anything). There are many great albums out there that I love that I haven't included.
Oh, and I guess if I tagged you you're all supposed to do the same, or something.
A Tribute to Jack Johnson (Miles Davis): Miles Davis once claimed that he could create "the greatest rock band you ever heard." Miles Davis was a lot of things, but he was never frivolous . Obviously, questions like this will never be settled, but if he did do it, it was this album, and not undeserving either. …

Everyday I learn something new and today I learned about the death of Jazz Trumpeter Freddie Hubbard. I was unware of him or his rich legacy as a trumpet player who was on the legendary status as a Miles Davis and who influenced others such as Wynton Marsalis.
Obituary by the BBC News:
Jazz giant Freddie Hubbard dies
Also, NPR had done story on his legacy which I felt was appropriate to share here to learn more about his work:
NPR - Freddie Hubbard: A Jazz Icon Remembered
Wow, I found this old clip of Freddie Hubbard & Art Blakey perform, Moanin. I am very familiar with this jazz track for I have it on one of my favorite Jazz CDs which was produced by Bill Cosby: Hello Friend: To Ennis with Love

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - influential jazz trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, who played on hundreds of recordings during a career spanning 50 years, died in a los angeles Hospital on Monday, his manager said. He was 70.
The Grammy Award-winning musician had been a patient at Sherman Oaks Hospital since suffering a Heart Attack a month ago, manager David Weiss said.
Famed for his fiery style, Hubbard played with such jazz icons as Thelonius Monk, Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderley, Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane.
Two years after moving to New York from his native Indianapolis in 1958, Hubbard recorded his first album, "Open Sesame," and enjoyed a meteoric rise in jazz circles.
By August 1961, he was onto his fourth album, "Ready for Freddie," a collaboration with Wayne Shorter considered by many to be his masterpiece.
Throughout the decade, he played both at the helm of his own small group and with bands led by others. …

Do this until you've got to 50 artists (not including your number one). If you get any repeats, just go to the second similar artist or the nearest one that you haven't already had.
