Been currently listening to:
Any other recommendations? Plus, general /jazz/ thread.
vigorously ignoring this because what?
Of those artists whose stuff do you like most, least, find most interesting, unpleasant etc..
Otherwise I'm just gonna say Cecil Taylor and Sam Rivers and leave it at that.
art ensemble of chicago is pretty dope. check out les stances a sophie.
if you are into coltrane I really like Ole. Not one of his more well known releases but that's one of my faves by him.
I've also been into Gil Evans lately. The Individualism is a great start.
np: miles davis - pharaoh's dance :)
The drums on this album are so fucking stellar.
I agree, if they don't continue, I'll just go ahead and make them if someone else won't
Do you not remember that crazy guy in one of those threads you linked convinced bop was ruining sharethreads? One of the more out-there trolls I've seen recently.
Ima stop shitting up this thread now though. I'd love to see /jazz/ become a daily thing if there's enough traffic, it's definitely been the best thread on /mu/ recently. There's even actual discussion and stuff! Not much point if the threads become too regular and just 404 though.
Also I feel like we might need a pasta for the OP with a few guides to getting into jazz and essentials lists and stuff.
The only jazz guys I know are Coltrane, Mingus, Adderly, Monk, and Davis
I listened to Pat Methany's album from a few years ago, thought it was good
who do I go to from here?
I've been enjoying a lot of Charlie Parker lately and wondering why he doesn't get more love on mu.
Mu and most web discussion of music in any genre is intrinsically biased towards discussion of studio albums, with a ridiculous bias against live or compilation albums.
Is this your experience? And what are the best jazz musicians that can only be appreciated through compilations or live albums?
No one ever talks about Wynton Marsalis on here and I don't know why. I guess it's cause he's still alive and making music, and that just isn't as cool as being dead. Dude makes great music. Just bought 'From the Plantation to the Penitentiary' last week and I've been spamming it. It's not as amazing as some of his other albums but I still love it.
>Not liking Electric Miles
How can you not like In a Silent Way
Electric Miles is everything after Miles in the sky
why do everyone always talk about Les stances à Sophie when it comes to Art ensemble of Chicago ? They made a lot of other great albums
Well "Idle Moments" is in part
Cm7 / Fm7 / G7#9 / AbMaj7
Fm7 G7#9 / AbMay7 / Dmin7b5 / Cmin7
and it's in the key of Eb Major
now Eb Major is C natural minor and has Eb Ab Bb
but G7#9 has a B
so that is not in the key of Eb, nor G7#9 so I suspect G7#9 is a secondary dominat in this case
but we just don't know, but either way the chord is out of the Eb scale so I guess it suggests other scales can be used for improvisation.
I do not know.
Ahmad Jamal. Anything of his live.
Bill Evans live at village vanguard.
Brubeck a LA mode is wonderful dancey shit. Time out is obviously great.
Art Blakey live at birdland.
Listen to more dizzy always. Have trumpet will excite!
Bud Powell anything. Great Tunisia cover IMO.
Grant green matador for great guitar with McCoy tyner and elvin Jones.
Miles in the sky. Miles smiles. Filles de Kilimanjaro. All stuff of Davis i don't see talked about here. His fusion shit is good shit you need to know this.
Just what I've been listening to for those of you looking for some stuff.
3:07 min into A.Y.
It's just the stuff Trout Mask opened with!
waaaaaaawow weeeeeeeeeeee waaaaaa FUNK Waaaaaaa
He remained poor all his life? yeah I'm not surprised
Listening to Fuchsia Swing Song by Sam Rivers right now. I'm into it so far--just on the first track. At the very least I'll get to hear Tony Williams for about forty minutes. GOAT drummer
man, learn to serial and 12 tone, and minimalism. start with sol lewitt.
all are is "here is the limit, the palette, what do i do that makes for a successful work" until it steps out, retracts, explodes, accepts a new palette, forever and ever.
Well I've still the melodic minor to start learning and sight reading to work at as well as a chapter on chord progressions.
modes can wait, as I have the G7 arpeggios in the mean time.
Currently listening to Parker. Such a great saxophonist, The Bird Blows The Blues
is essential if you're looking to get into 40's era of Jazz.
I think The African Beat is a much better album, the drumming on that is just insane
You should check out "Waves" as well, another fantastic album by him.
I struggled for a while to decide which was my favorite coltrane album. i was into ascensions for a bit, i was into a love supreme for a while, blue train is hard not to love but this one just gets me everytie. from start to finish i can't stop tapping along. im basicallly sezing to how goddamn good this album is.it may or may not be my #1 album but it is definitely my desert island album . this album takes me to another wolrd. even greensleeves is reinvigorated. it has the raw energy that i feel like even teenagers could appreciate
is there something like the western version of soil & pimp sessions? really curious because it's the only jazz band I know and I'm trying to get into the genre
My personal list:
>Bobby Hutcherson - Happenings
>Mal Waldron Trio - Free At Last
>Sonny Rollins - Saxophone Colossus
>Collin Walcott - Cloud Dance
>John Coltrane - Giant Steps
OrJust go about it randomly or in chronological order.
