Why no jazz thread?
I want to talk about jazz.
So what's your favorite jazz subgenre and what's your favorite album from that subgenre.
Bonus: what's the best track on that album and why
hard bop I guess, pic related is my GOAT with I guess st Thomas as best track, but they're all really good
Free Jazz, Saxophone Improvisations Series F, JMK-80 CFN-7.
Going to listen to this tomorrow, what should I expect?
I already like Jazz Mood by him.
One of my favorite Hard Bop albums, have you listened to Freedom Suite?
These came in yesterday. I only realized just now that it's nothing but piano trios, but 27 out of 104 Jazz CDs being piano trio material isn't too much of a bias, is it?
Is this anyone's AOTY? It's some great funky jazz fusion, nice orchestrations throughout. This or maybe the Breathing Effect - Mars is a dangerous place for love.
I'd start with the Ken Burns Charlie parker compilation or Clint Eastwood's Bird soundtrack. Jazz at Massey Hall and Parker with Strings are both essentials, check those out
hes not wrong
avant garde a shit
fuck off santana
Start with the Dial and Savoy material by Charlie Parker. There are a million fucking compilations with those on, but word is the Spotlite ones are the best sounding. (I have the JSP box, which also sounds pretty good) Go for a box set with "masters" in the title because otherwise you'll get ten million alternate versions in a row.
Alternately, there's a 2 disc compilation called Yardbird Suite which is a pretty good overview of his whole career.
Hard bop for life. Can I get some love for this man? Pepper Adams is my absolute idol as a baritone player.
>So what's your favorite jazz subgenre
spiritual jazz ; ^ )
>Anyone have a Leroy Vinnegar Album for me? i can't find a download anywhere
sure, friend, here you go! (just right click on the pic and save it)
have any of you guys heard this? it's fucking amazing
probably my favorite jazz album this decade, beats the Epic effortlessly
also, any more jazz albums from this decade i should be aware off?
no pretentiousness pls
since you appreciate it, here is a second one!
>beats the Epic effortlessly
now that's a challenge! I can't believe they did it, what an absolute madmen gang!
most of my favorite jazz is from before the album era. i like everything from louis armstrong/earl hines up to and including clifford brown/max roach, that period.
my favorite jazz combo is bud powell's modernists:
what a group !!
any recommendations for stuff like the John Lurie National Orchestra? I particularly like the really "tribal" sounding percussion. Most places describe it as avant-garde jazz which is too vague to find anything similar.
>bud powell's modernists
"This group is everything that's wrong with "modern jazz". No feeling or emotion, just lots of technical showing off and fast tempos with nothing new added to the music. This modern jazz will never capture the same feeling as "real" jazz."
-if /mu/ existed in 1950
it's pretty much where it ends for me though. the culmination of bebop (although, like i said, i'd include clifford brown/max roach). "everyhing that's wrong with modern jazz" would be for me thelonious monk (brilliant corners and onward). but that's just me.
I really recommend getting into Spotify if your exploring classic jazz. It's often difficult to find downloads and there's a shit ton of classic jazz (especially mid 60's and older) on streaming services.
Definitely much easier than getting everything from Soulseek that I used to do before.
