All genres welcome. I will be sharing mostly jazz-related genres.
Requests are ok IF you share something first.
Various Artists- African Scream Contest: Raw and Psychedelic Afro Sounds from Benin and Togo 70's (2008)
>A compilation of live performances from Africa, heavily influenced by American funk, soul, and R&B, especially James Brown.
Anthony Braxton- Six Monk's Compositions (1987)
>Saxophonist and free-thinker Anthony Braxton deconstructs some of the melodies and harmonic structures of Thelonious Monk and uses them as jumping off points for spirited free improvisations. The pianist is Mal Waldron.
Jonathan Kreisberg- Nine Stories Wide (2004)
>post-bop, modal jazz
>A departure from his quintet and his original compositions, this album features Krieisberg in a guitar trio setting and playing mostly new interpretations of jazz standards. Despite the somewhat “straight-ahead” nature of this record, Kreisberg’s tone and unmistakable chromatic approach to improvisation make this a very enjoyable listen.
Bill Evans- California, Here I Come (recorded 1967, released 1982)
>piano trio, straight ahead jazz
>A live recording from the Village Vanguard that captures one of the few collaborations between Bill Evans and Philly Joe Jones, with his common bassist, Eddie Gomez. They run through mostly standards, some which were seldom performed/recorded by Evans. The playing here is unusually energetic and extroverted compared to Evans' normal style.
Eddie Henderson- Phantoms (1994)
>Eddie Henderson was known mostly for his fusion work in the 70’s (in Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi group), but here he goes for a more straight-ahead sound, while still keeping an adventurous sense of group interplay and improvisation. The group plays several 60’s standards (Dolphin Dance, Naima, Milestones) but also does several original tunes.
Weatherbox - The Cosmic Drama
Gene Bertoncini- Concerti (2008)
>Bertoncini plays a nylon-string acoustic guitar, which has been used much more in classical playing, but Bertoncini makes the sound work well for jazz. Bertoncini is accompanied on this album by bass and string quartet with some amazing arrangements.
Charlie Parker- Bird at St. Nick's
>A live recording from 1950, featuring Bird, Red Rodney, Al Haig, Tommy Potter, and Roy Haynes. The recording quality is unfortunately very rough but it's worth a listen just to hear a whole set from this great band.
The Bulgarian State Radio & Television Female Vocal Choir- Le Mystere des Voix Bulgares (1975)
>choral Bulgarian folk
>A compilation of contemporary choral arrangements of Bulgarian folk music. Haunting and beautiful.
Jacques Vidal - New of bop
on this 1995 record, bassist Jacques Vidal (who worked with Christian Vander when he was creating Magma in 1969) comes with a great lineup : Florin Niculescu on violin, who has a Grappelli-esque playing and gives a clear swing / manouche touch to this record, Michel Graillier on piano, Frédéric Sylvestre on guitar and Simon Goubert on drums
Charles Mingus- East Coasting (1957)
>hard-bop, jazz compostion
>a lesser-known set of mostly originals recorded by Mingus in '57. The lineup features Bill Evans, and also Mingus's common collaborator Jimmy Knepper on trombone.
Silverchair - Frogstomp
>alt rock, grunge
This is a pretty fantastic album, IMO.
Does anyonehave Artwork by The Used? I'd really appreciate it.
Andrew Hill- Black Fire (1964)
>Pianist Hill's excellent debut on the Blue Note label. His unique approach to melody and harmony are on full display here, as is his excellent sense of interplay with tenor player Joe Henderson.
Gabriela Montero- Plays Chopin, Falla, Ginastera, etc. (2005)
>Montero is a Venezuelan-born pianist who is trained in the classical tradition, and true to the tradition, she improvises in a classical style. On this recording she uses Romantic and late-Romantic compositions and composers as the basis for her improvisations.
Archie Shepp & Richard Davis - Body and soul
recorded in 1989, this duo album proposes four standards (Things ain't what they used to be, Body and soul, Pannonica and Round about midnight) played in a free spirit by the two masters
Alex Sipiagin- Mirages (2009)
>For those not familiar with Sipiagin, he’s one of the most gifted trumpet players and composers on today’s jazz scene. This is one of his more straight-ahead records. This music is very much influenced by the 70’s recordings of Woody Shaw and Freddie Hubbard, largely due to the inclusion of pianist Mulgrew Miller, who often played with Shaw. There’s a very high energy level throughout the whole record.
Celldweller - Wish Upon A Blackstar
>EDM brostep shit, gimmicky, cheesy, awful cringe lyrics
Erykah Badu- Mama's Gun (2000)
>Singer Erykah Badu gives a modern interpretation of African American music, blending soul, R&B, funk, jazz, and hip hop for a catchy, fun, and thoroughly entertaining album.
Unwound- Live Leaves
>post-hardcore, post-rock, live album, fans only
a compilation of live tracks from the Leaves Turn Inside You tour.
Standard Fare - The Noyelle Beat (2012)
>Indie pop, female vocalist, summer album-core
>Emma Kupa's arresting vocals are the center of this Sheffield-based trio, who built a considerable following in England before disbanding in 2013.
Gerry Mulligan Quartet (1952)
>The first release from the Pacific Jazz 10-inch series, this collects some of the famous chord-less quartet's most memorable numbers.
Dave Ballou- Amongst Ourselves (2001)
>free jazz, post bop
>Trumpet/sax/bass/drums gives this a somewhat similar sound to The Shape of Jazz to Come but with more variety in approach and more group interplay. Most of the tunes have some sort of structure, but this consistently gives way to all-out free improvisation.
Oh yeah, my bad.
The password is the text in the image because the spam filter is being a cunt.
I ripped it off of some Spanish website a long time ago but the password should still work.
Linton Kwesi Johnson- Forces of Victory
>dub poetry, reggae, spoken word, proto-rap
Linton Kwesi Johnson's distinctive style of spoken word poetry over dub instrumentals often resembles a Jamaican Gil Scott-Heron, and his body of work is absolutely essential for any fan of dub or reggae. Fantastic.
Chris Potter Underground Orchestra- Imaginary Cities (2015)
>contemporary composition, improvisation
>Tenor saxophonist extraordinaire Chris Potter's most recent album builds on his usual "Undground Band" by adding a string quartet and vibraphone to to complete his 11-piece "Underground Orchestra." The compositions take influence from jazz, 20th century classical music, and ethnic folk music, but they all feature intense improvisational sections as well.
Bnegão & Seletores de Freqüência- Sintoniza Lá (2012)
>Brazilian hip hop, funk, ska
>A very good rap album from Brazilian artist Bnegão with really great and catchy hooks from the horn section. It mixes influence of various Latin musics with old-school funky hip hop.
King Tubby- Dub From The Roots
Kenny Wheeler- Double Double You (1983)
>An excellent example of 80's acoustic post-bop with a great lineup of heavy-hitters. Wheeler and co. are given plenty of space to explore his exciting compositions.
Basic Channel- Quadrant Dub
>dub techno, minimal techno
Absolutely beautiful. If you're interested in getting into techno, start with this.
Dizzy Gillespie- World Statesman (1956)
>big band, bebop
>Gillespie was one of the first to organize a big band to play in the bebop style. The tunes are fast paced, spirited and exciting and the soloists are especially good on this recording of the big band.
they get deleted after 30 days of not being downloaded
besides, some of them don't get the number of downloads they deserve. But that's why I upload new stuff too like the share that you quoted in your post. It's never been shared on /mu/ before
Kamelot - The Black Halo
>American Power metal
Revolution Renaissance - New Era
>Finnish Power metal
Iron Mask - Black as Death
>Belgian Power metal
I love this. If anyone have their follow-up album Come Sunday I'd really appreciate a share,
Hank Jones & Charlie Haden - Steal Away: Spirituals, Hymns and Folk Songs (1995)
>jazz, spiritual, piano/bass duo
>WestSideOfJazz: From an album of incomparable beauty and sublime serenity, Charlie Hayden and Hank Jones' recording of traditional religious music is food for the soul regardless of one's preference or lack thereof. A gentle, warm, empowering embrace by two exceptional musicians.
then they can feel free to ignore any threads I post in, scroll past my shares, filter the phrase "post-bop", share more of their own music, complain about it in the thread, or any number of other things that I can't stop them from doing.
Doesn't really matter to me because it won't stop me from what I'm doing.
Also six shares (out of thirty in this thread) labeled as post-bop hardly seems to qualify as "spam" to me, but what do I know...
Cortijo and his Time Machine (1974)
>Latin fusion, funk, plena, bomba
>Cortijo blends the traditional dance rhythms of his native Puerto Rico with funk/R&B sounds popular in 70's America for a energetic album that has that vintage appeal but ideas that still sound fresh today.
Cock Sparrer- Shock Troops
>oi!, punk rock
One of the best Oi! bands, with surprisingly strong songwriting and with a strong pop sensibility filtered through working-class pride and anger.
Yves Brouqui - The music of Horace Silver
on this 2010 record, guitarist Yves Brouqui (who played a lot in New York and especially at Smalls from 1994 to 2002) chose to work on Horace Silver's 1949-1959 legacy, and deals with such standards as Quicksilver or Creepin' in in a very bop way, assisted by Laurent Courthaliac on piano, Mathias Allamane on bass and Joe Strasser on drums
Man this is fantastic. Thank you.
Jimmy Raney- Solo (1976)
>guitar jazz, improvisation
>"Solo" is possibly a misleading name for this album, which is actually a series of duets that Raney did with himself via overdub. In addition to swing and jazz standard numbers, there are also pieces that border on free improvisations, and a well-composed two-part fugue.
John Fahey- The Yellow Princess
>american primitivism, folk, blues, solo guitar
Everyone's favorite solo steel-string acoustic folk guitarist, incorporating influences as diverse as the delta and country blues, 20th century classical music, raga, and dixieland jazz to make something totally unique and beautiful. This particular album is one of my personal favourites of his, and this issue is the 2006 reissue which includes three excellent bonus tracks.
Ray Barretto- Indestructible (1973)
>salsa, son, rumba
>Fania Records is pretty much the “Blue Note” of the salsa world and percussionist Ray Barretto was one of the best-known and most successful of the Fania All-Stars. This is one of his best recordings and all-around one of the best salsa recordings ever. Pure, danceable, fun salsa tunes.
cool, I like these two guys a lot and didn't know they recorded together. thanks
Didier Levallet - Voix croisées
on this 2013 record, Didier Levallet pairs with François Laizeau on drums for the rhythmic section, and faces an interesting alloy of timbres, that is to say flute (Sylvaine Hélary), trumpet (Airelle Besson) and barytone sax (Cécile Bonacina) to deliver a great post-bop set
Harry Partch- Delusion of The Fury
>microtonal music, 20th century classical, opera
Harry Partch was an American composer who, having decided that Bach, polyphony, 12-tone scales, and abstract music were all evil, proceeded to build his own musical language almost entirely from scratch, utilizing a bizarre 49-tone scale, instruments he built himself, and influences from oriental and ethnic music to create some of the strangest, most idiosyncratic music you may ever hear. This recording is considered by many to be his masterpiece: a 72-minute long microtonal opera.
Metal Urbain- L'âge d'or
>synthpunk, punk rock, compilation
Compilation of most of the output of this early French synthpunk band who, apparently taking cues from Suicide, used a synthesizer and a drum machine in the place of a bassist and drummer. Interesting mix of early punk with weird, conflicting drumbox rhythms and screeching synth noises.
Hank Jones - Relaxin' at Camarillo
for this 1956 quartet session, Hank Jones is supported by two giants, Paul Chambers on bass and Kenny Clark on drums, and by the Belgian sax and flute player Bobby Jaspar (who only plays flute here). they deliver a quality set navigating between cool jazz and hard bop
Eyeless In Gaza- Drumming The Beating Heart
>post-punk, new wave
Bizarre, sparse, synthy post-punk that doesn't really resemble anything else of the time. Perfect for rainy days.
Pärson Sound- Pärson Sound
>psychedelic rock, drone, compilation
Freaked-out, proto-kraut Swedish psychedelic band that existed for something like two years in the late 60s. Long, repetitive, drugged-out, droning jams to space out to.
Die Kreuzen- Die Kreuzen
80s hardcore that manages to break away from the standard dischord/SST sound while still remaining intense and powerful. Basically sounds like the Minutemen's evil twin.
Roland Guerin - Live at the Blue note
post bop, for this date bassist Roland Guerin was surrounded by a sextet of which I know nothing about, but who does its job well : Brice Winston on tenor sax, Derek Douget on alto sax, Antonio Gambrell on trumpet, Frederick Sanders on piano and Donald Edwards on drums. the record is composed of two standards (All blues and Autumn leaves) and five original compositions by Guerin, some co-written with his mother, who appears to be a bassist as well
Brice Winston and Donald Edwards are both great. Winston has played with Terence Blanchard for years and Edwards is pretty in demand as a sideman in NY and just released a pretty good album last year.
nice, imma try Evolution of an influenced mind since I like Orrin Evans and Walter Smith III. also it appears I already heard him on Misha Tsiganov - The artistry of standard, but I didn't remember his name. thanks for the info !
Bill Evans and Lee Konitz- Play the Arrangements of Jimmy Giuffre
>this is a reissue that groups together several sessions that Bill Evans and Lee Konitz recorded together, focusing on arrangements by Jimmy Giuffre who plays mostly bari sax on this record. Warne Marsh also appears on several tracks.

Morisada Michihiro - Agekunohatemonaku
solo bass, free improvisation from 1979. Morisada Michihiro explores in an interesting way the sonic possibilities of the upright bass during the two side-long improvisations, in pizzicato and with a bow, sometimes managing to sound horn-like with the latter
Music from two basses is good too, but I found it overwhelming at times. if you enjoy solo bass, you can also take this one
Henry Grimes - Solo
solo improvisation on bass and violin from 2008 by this great master. during the two hours and a half he plays, he switches the instruments and manages to never get boring despite the length
Really appreciate it, solo instrumentation is great for me just to hear some of the sounds they create, most of which i enjoy but some higher reed instruments are to much, i couldnt make it though Evan Parkers conic sections it was just migraine inducing
also reposting some free improv stuff mostly found on slsk:
Eve Risser ,Benjamin Duboc ,Edward Perraud -En corps
Sylvie Courvoisier - Lonelyville
>Jazzy Free Improvisation
Misha Tsiganov- Artistry of the Standard (2014)
>Russian-born pianist Misha Tsiganov recorded this album of extremely interesting takes on jazz standards earlier this year. If you think jazz standards are boring, give this a listen. Tsiganov has completely re-imagined these classics with new time signatures, reharmonizations, countermelodies, and new solo changes.

The Dirtbombs- Ultraglide in Black (2001)
>garage soul, rock, funk
>This rock band from Detroit plays soul and R&B covers with an energetic, punk-influenced sound. The covers span artists like Sly Stone, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, and Stevie Wonder.
Fred Hersch and Julian Lage- Free Flying (2013)
>jazz, duet improvisation
>Hersch is a veteran pianist on the NY scene and Lage is a young guitarist who is just making a name for himself. This record captures the stimulating interplay between these two musicians in a duet setting.
Joy Division - Les Bains Douches 18 December 1979
>post-punk, live, the best performance they have ever done, RAW
Orchid - Discography (minus splits)
>chaotic screamo, hardcore, essential, """"skramz""""
Here's a fave of mine. 3 albums by freak-folk pioneer and damn fine bongo player, Eddy Detroit.
The Philosopher's Journey (with King Heathen)
>Freak folk, safaricore
apologize for less knowing english
you wish more post-bop yes?
Billy Drummond- Dubai (1996)
>This is a quartet led by the great drummer Billy Drummond. A “chordless” ensemble, this is a good example of the sax battle setup, with Chris Potter and Walt Weiskopf both on saxes. As usual Chris Potter steals the show.
Pulpo’s Hot Bread (2009)
>salsa, son, guaguanco, cumbia, Latin jazz
>Pianist Gilberto Colon Jr. worked and toured with many of the Fania allstars in the golden age of salsa. On this album his band Pulpo re-interprets some salsa classics as well as original music in a variety of Cuban, Puerto Rican, and other Carribean styles. There are some tracks with vocals but for the most part the album is instrumental based and features some fantastic piano solos. Think Monk meets salsa.
I can never recommend this enough. They were doing the shit people think Swans is so revolutionary for doing now all the way back in the 60s.
Here's my contribution to the thread
Tipsy - Trip Tease
>cocktail, downtempo, plunder phonics
A quirky mix of downtempo, space age pop, exotica and nu jazz. Seriously, download this if you haven't heard it.
Steve Turre- Spiritman (2015)
>post-bop, straight ahead jazz
>Turre was one of the top trombone players of the 70's and 80's and here he records a live set at the Smoke Jazz club with a great band. In addition to trombone, Turre also plays his trademark conch shells.
