Does anybody listen to jazz anymore?
If you listen to jazz, and you dont wear fedoras, what's your favorite album? pic related
bossa nova is best jazz
That's one of my favorites. Can't play it often though because I've played it to death.
I added a fuckton of jazz to my library, most of which I haven't gotten to yet. I've got tons of Miles (including a collection of 8 mono recordings), Mingus, Monk, Coltrane, Hancock, and a smattering of others.
Latest listen was Miles' On the Corner, which I didn't think was one of his better ones.
Haven't listened to enough jazz to think I have a valid opinion on whats good and what isn't, but the piano on this album is absolutely glorious.
I don't listen a lot but I really like this one
yusef lateef - eastern sounds
woody herman - giant steps
zoot sims - flower waltz
bill evans - waltz for debby/trio 65/village vanguard complete
john coltrane - african brass sessions
ryo fukui - early summer
sadao watanbe - swiss air
robert glasper - double booked
ahmad jamal - count 'em 88
any recommendations for jazz that sounds somwhat like this?
it's called bossa nova. Antonio Carlos Jobim and Joao gilberto are great starting places. The former sings less, but his stuff is arranged very thick and the latter sings almost every song but it can be very minimalist
Jazz should be critiqued liked any other music. Just because you're uniformed it doesn't mean you don't have an album that is your current favorite. Bill Evans is great to check out no matter what.
well i didnt see the thread. and this thread isnt about mingus. and idgaf.
who said anything about discovering? i just said its my favorite album atm.
get the fuck out you dumb cunt.
I don't listen to much jazz, but someone shared this one is a sharethread not too long ago, and I've been loving it since.
basically the same personnel with the same feel, thick horn lines, polyphony, a 'contemporary' jazz sound. Not to mention gary smulyan shreads the bari sax
