28 Jan 2015, 11:00 by MisterJuniorI originally wrote this for a guy on YouTube who expressed a desire to get into Miles Davis, but since I ended up writing so much I thought I would cross-post it here just in case someone happens across this page and is unfamiliar with but curious about Miles as well.
Here are 10 albums from Miles Davis that in my opinion make an excellent "primer" of his overall body of work. These are not necessarily the 10 Miles Davis albums I consider to be "the best" but rather the 10 that I feel best capture the various aspects and important phases of his long and very influential and innovative career. I've tried to take into account the albums' accessibility, quality and how representative they are of the particular phase from which they're drawn.
1. Birth of the Cool - Collection of cool jazz sides recorded in '49-'50 with larger ensembles. As the title indicates, it was instrumental in the development of the cool jazz sound, which distinguishes itself from bop/bebop by generally using slower tempi…

14 Jun 2013, 21:52 by fdunihoIn a journal article called Development of my Taste in Music, I am giving a long, meandering autobiographical account of how my taste in music developed. Here I'm going to just highlight the main albums that shaped my tastes, or where I'm not sure what the exact album was, are representative of the direction my taste was taking. To the best of my ability, I will list albums in the order that I first listened to them. For some classical music, I will list a different recording, because the original vinyl is not available on Last.fm, or I just don't remember what it was. This is a work in progress, and gaps may be filled in as time goes on. It is fairly lengthy, but if you're short on time, you can just look over the album covers.
This is not my first recording of Grieg's Peer Gynt Suite, but it is the one I later bought on CD. …

Sinéad O'Connor -
How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?
Ah Ms. O'Connor, it's been far too long. Sometime around the end of middle school and beginning of high school I had this poster hanging up and it was my kind of “when it comes to when women, you don't have to settle, there's still a few original ones out there” message. Which I guess I took to point. But O'Connor has always been that woman that I look at and give an approving head nod to with an eyes-closed thumbs up. She's controversial for the sake of actually getting something done (at least she used to be, before that whole superhappyfuntime marriage 'n' divorce thing).
I'm not going to say that this lacks the inner fire of her previous works, but something about it just feels a little off. Not in a bad way, but a weird lateral movement. …

It does not contain all of my albums and EPs, because that would take too long. Here are most of them.
