Default Great Musicians With Very Little Recorded Material

With all of the prolific artists who get a lot of clout, I thought it'd be interesting to explore the other end of the spectrum. The artists who put out barely any albeit incredible work are often victims of label risk aversion and sometimes it's just a matter of avoiding overstaying one's welcome. Sometimes they do a whoopsie and die on us.

Post your favourite non-prolific artists and speculate widely as to why they don't have a Zorn-level sprawling discography while you're at it. If it's a little less clear than death, feel free to tell us why these artists have taken a step back if you're hip to the reasoning.

I'll kick it off with the explosive and exceptionally expressive jazz drumming of Hiroshi Yamazaki. He appeared on Kaoru Abe's Jazz Bed recorded in 1971 and Otomo Yoshihide's 14.11.16 with Evan Parker, but apart from that it's total radio silence. This one feels like a lack of a market unfortunately, but in a perfect world, there would be an excellent collab with Masayuki Takayanagi, among other things.

One can make a strong case that Robert Johnson is the most influential musician of the 20th C and his complete recordings are just slightly over 100 minutes.

Reason: 27 Club 1938

Absolutely.

In the vein of older artists, Norma Tanega seems like her work was cut short

Norma Tanega?

Your autocorrect must really be getting over zealous

Almost 50 years too late it’s time to take notice of this revolutionary guitarist

If he’s still alive we all owe him an apology

The Shaggs

They created their own musical universe and left those who get it stunned by their brilliance.

The Dead Boys

I also think they’re one of the most under discussed bands on Music Banter

Just broke up
