26 maj 2012, 05:17 av kmullinThis is a list of hard bop and hard boppish albums. Recently, i’ve been feeling for hard bop – especially albums i havent really listened to much. And, i’m hoping to learn something.
Many are prototypical hard bop. Some are marginally hard bop. And, some are more post-bop, whatever that means. Some are somewhat cool (as in cool jazz), others somewhat soul jazz. And, sometimes free jazz creeps in. In other words, they kinda make up the mainstream trends in jazz and are mostly hard boplike. But, you should always let the music speak for itself – this is just for fun. (Theres not really any fusion here.)
Many of the albums are classic. Most are major works of art and craft. I dont know if i dig all the albums, but most are pretty good. If you check out about a quarter of these albums, you’ll get a real good idea of what hardbop is if it’s anything at all.
This is a long list because jazz is big. There are top 10 or top 100 lists, but this is a mother. …

so anyway when the mixtape ends, do you flip the cassette and listen to the mix you made again?
Or, do you cypher freeform on some next other level?
_ progressing from one node to the next like Art Blakey to Art Pepper. flying unencumbered and at peace with expressive nuance of unknowing....

6 jul 2006, 05:55 av UhwelluhHarry James, Compact Jazz--nice sampler of later stuff recorded for MGM, 1959-1964, ranging from Dixieland revival to Basie-swing to slightly more progessive arrangements. Complements the Verve Jazz Masters 55 cd (drawn from the same time period) nicely since only overlaps on one tune. Harry sounds in good form, especially on Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most.
Gil Evans, Great Jazz Standards--wow, after one listen this is probably my favorite Evans recording (even beating out the collabs with Davis). He tackles Davenport Blues & Chant of the Weed with respect, if not reverence. The version of Straight No Chaser is a riot (& interpolates quotes from American Patrol, etc). None of the solos stand out to me yet, but am sure I'll be listening to this again soon. And lo & behold, Pacific decided to reissue this & its sister session on one disc recently. Tempted to get that for the likely cleaner sound.
Newport at 50--sampler drawn from Columbia recordings at Newport Jazz festival 1956-1963. …

9 feb 2006, 22:49 av deanchristesenI'm getting ready to go to college next year to study jazz, and I'm trying to get a head start - especially so I can do really well on my auditions coming up in the next few weeks.
As a drummer, they start you off in college with bop, which I've already been working on. That's pretty much what most people think when they think jazz, so of course that's what I've been playing. This includes a lot of my favorite stuff, like Miles Davis Quintet, Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers, Art Pepper, Dizzy Gillespie, Clifford Brown, and so on. Drummers especially include Philly Joe Jones, Max Roach, Roy Haynes, and so on.
I've lately come to realize that, for the most part, the only reason you study bop is to get to new modern jazz, which is much more freeform. I was advised by my new drum teacher to pick a bunch of albums, so I started with Chick Corea's Now He Sings, Now He Sobs, with Roy Haynes on drums. This is really my first taste of jazz this freeform. …
