I'm still working my way through all six LPs of the Miles at the Fillmore collection. Trying to take the shows in one at a time to really get a feel for the unique elements of each performance.

I have a decent Miles collection. The Complete 72-disc Columbia Album Collection in FLAC and ~25 original LPs. The Japan-only issue Black Beauty double LP held me over for my Fillmore fix until the release of the complete performances. Really looking forward to taking them in.

Arturo Sandoval - There Will Never Be Another You - great performance all around.


John Coltrane - Equinox - Coltrane's Sound - one of my favorite saxophone tracks I've heard, the flow is real.

You only have to do the code after the watch?v= part of the youtube link when you embed the videos. Great Coltrane track btw. He's quite clearly the god of all things jazz.

Currently listening to Masada Guitars. Discussing it with TH got me thinking about it a lot and it's an amazing record. Some of the Tim Sparks songs are a bit happy-go-lucky for my taste though, but there's an abundance of styles on this album so it's easy to look past.

Cool Jazz and Soul Jazz Classics
 
I was in a jazzy mood when I got home from work so I compiled data from RYM's genre charts and put together two collections - one of cool jazz classic LPs and the other of soul jazz staples.

I'm about an hour into it and here's how the playlists stand:

THE COOL JAZZ SET

[1958] Miles Davis - Ascenseur pour l'échafaud
[1957] Miles Davis - 'Round About Midnight
[1958] Miles Davis - Milestones
[1959] Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
[1958] Bill Evans - Everybody Digs Bill Evans
[1960] Bill Evans - Portrait in Jazz
[1961] Bill Evans - Explorations
[1963] Bill Evans - Undercurrent (w Jim Hall)
[1977] Bill Evans - You Must Believe in Spring
[1961] Gil Evans Orchestra - Out Of The Cool
[1975] Jim Hall - Concierto

I'm looking forward to some solid education from these records. I think they'll make for excellent weekend listening.

Do you agree with the selections? Have I omitted any critical works?

Thanks!

Despite dying in his mid-twenties, Clifford Brown made a lasting impression on jazz and influenced many trumpeters.

I'm going to have to write my definitive jazz list. It might take a while but it will be good.

Go for it... it's a tough one to tackle certainly. I'll probably do the same. Gotta give it some thought :wave::drummer:

'2 pm' - Jack Kerouac jazz and prose

Really digging this fan-made series of jazz music, set to poetry written and recited by Jack Kerouac. Highly recommended (by me) to anyone who has an appreciation for good jazz and Jack Kerouac. Very well done!
