MFAWG: Who wants to listen to somebody play a series of mistakes for 45 mminutes?
zimbomba63: A good list of classics, but, expand your horizons and listen to the music put out on the ECM label. I promise it will be good for your head.
kroonermanblack: Random question, I'm bored and it's (ok, not) semi related. Anyone know where I can listen to some harmonica that isn't 'folk' but is more 'pop' and/or high spagetti western style? The new Kesha song made me remember I always wanted to try it./just not in to jazz//Tried morphine, it was ok, bit heavy for me unless it's raining and I've got a chick
Somacandra: thamike: I'm not a jazz aficionado, so I'm basing my choices on awesomeness alone. This is Davis' response to "you can't just jack up the list with Miles Davis."I own TONS of Miles Davis: biatches Brew, Birth of the Cool, Dark Magus, Kind of Blue, On The Corner, Round About Midnight, In A Silent Way, etc.....I love Miles. Yes, he's a titan, perhaps THE titan in a world of titans. But a bucket list of jazz albums can't just be Miles Davis. Its the perennial problem in all jazz compilations.
Rann Xerox: Marquis de Sod: I have all those, but it's A Love Supreme for the winAlso missing from the list:[i78.photobucket.com image 500x500]It's too bad the sounds of people talking, glasses clinking and silverware being used cannot be removed from the recording. Didn't those people know that one of the deities of Jazz was playing the piano?
organizmx: I listen to WBGO in Newark a lot
Somacandra: zimbomba63: A good list of classics, but, expand your horizons and listen to the music put out on the ECM label. I promise it will be good for your head.I agree, but you will find a lot of older school purists vomiting at that. Just saying. ECM is often viewed as a historical gift for carrying the jazz tradition from Charles Mingus until the arrival of the Young Lions. A temporary "European exile," if you will. Most of Keith Jarrett is on ECM. I posted Bremen/Lausanne. I have a personal hard-on for Jan Garbarek and Jack DeJohnette's work, as well as Jarrett.In fact, the Jarrett Trio with DeJohnette and Gary Peacock would probably be the thing I would play for someone who wanted an introduction to the best of contemporary acoustic jazz.
Somacandra: Well I think we know Wynton Marsalis is a Farker now, right Submitter?/Time for Miles to run the Voodoo down on yo' ass.
theorellior: Not a bad list, maybe not the best, but only ten albums? Whatever.Personally, "A Love Supreme" should have been on there, and I'd probably ask for some Wayne Shorter.
udhq: List needs more Sun Ra.
REO-Weedwagon: I've always thought Miles' album Pangaea is criminally neglected. There are rhythms on that album which make me sure Miles was possessed by a demon.
pedobearapproved: Wes Montgomery and Milt Jackson = heavenhttp://youtu.be/G0LybuNsbjA
Goonie_Goo_Goo: try that again... one of my faves:
Somacandra: Looks over list....yes, I own them all, and yes, from a bucket list perspective, I would agree.[upload.wikimedia.org image 220x217]But you'd have to make room for Keith Jarrett too. Probably the Bremen/Lausanne records.
mrEdude: as someone who only recently heard biatches Brew, I must say that subby is a philistine.
thamike: You could have easily tossed out The Shape of Jazz to Come for this:...you jive-ass turkeys.
DrBenway: udhq: List needs more Sun Ra.Indeed. It's a pretty narrow selection, genre-wise. But trying to pick only ten is borderline absurd anyway.
Charlie Freak: Evans
